First 'Stranger Things 3' Trailer Promises Fourth of July Terror

Our heroes aren't kids anymore.

The first trailer for the new season of Stranger Things is here, and as iconic as season one will always be, this one is looking pretty great.

Set in the summer of ’85, this season will center at least partly around the opening of a new mall in town.

There’s not too much else we know at this point, but we do see ‘80s fave and new cast member Cary Elwes in the trailer, joining our usual cast as the mayor of the town.

The new season is likely to focus around the main gang’s shift from being kids to hitting their early teen years, with Mike even saying in the trailer:

“We’re not kids anymore. I mean, what did you think? We’re just gonna sit in my basement all day? Play games for the rest of our lives?”

The trailer also takes us through the town’s Fun Fair, shows Eleven using her powers, and of course gives us a visit from some terrors of the Upside Down.

LGBTQ representation in Stranger Things has been non-existent so far in the first two seasons, somewhat of an oddity considering the series has no problem showcasing homophobia at the same time. While the trailer doesn’t give us any hints that that may change, we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that Netflix’s biggest hit will step up to the plate of inclusion.

Season three doesn’t premiere on Netflix until July 4th, but for now, enjoy the trailer:
