stranger things logo

The show “Stranger Things” is a rock-solid hit among fans of all things Geek and now with two seasons under its belt, the Netflix Original series has conventions, comic books, and novelizations of its very interesting mythology. No one was surprised when a third season was announced and now its time to enjoy the official trailer for this season. Let’s take a look down below. I’ve also added the premise and casting.

The Premise: Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. Inadvertently, they have created a portal to an alternate dimension called “the Upside Down”. The influence of the Upside Down starts to affect the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways. The first season begins in November 1983, when Will Byers is abducted by a creature from the Upside Down. His mother, Joyce, and the town’s police chief, Jim Hopper, search for Will. At the same time, a young psychokinetic girl called Eleven escapes from the laboratory and assists Will’s friends, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas, in their own efforts to find Will. The second season is set a year later, starting in October 1984. Will has been rescued, but few know of the details of the events. When it is discovered that Will is still being influenced by entities from the Upside Down, his friends and family learn there is a larger threat to their universe from the Upside Down. The third season is set a few months later, in mid-1985, in the midst of the popularity of the film Back to the Future. Mike and Eleven have developed a relationship, as have Max and Lucas.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: You might be surprised at this but I never managed to get around to watching the first two seasons of the series. I had a few months of continual “busy” and this found me not getting around to so many of my shows. I probably need a solid week of binge-watching time to catch up since this one in particular sounds like something I would be 100% interested in. With my missing the first two seasons, I didn’t watch the trailer since I feared any leaks to what has come before. What did you readers think about this trailer? Are you fans of the series and have been binging it the moment it becomes available? Chime in down below and I will see you next time around.
