    Assuming I'm interpreting their Facebook live video of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, the premiere date for season 3 of Stranger Things is July 4, 2019!

    Edit: A subsequent post (complete with poster) confirms the premiere date!

    Happy new year! The countdown to season 3 begins now!

    For those who don't have Facebook, you can check out the video and poster via Twitter (both on the same page courtesy of A.V. Club).

    Here are the clues I picked out in the text stuff that popped up that I could make out.
    One said "what happens when blue and yellow meet in the west", and before the next one zoomed in on "Silvercat feeds", it also had a references to Aparri Accounts and Lynx Corp.

    The "what happens when blue and yellow meet in the west" and "silvercat feeds" were two of the hidden messages in the behind-the-scenes book that came out last year. Here are the other messages, but everyone should check out the book for its own sake, too, because it's packed with lots of great information about making of the show and it's filled with lots of 80s nostalgia.

    I'm sure like the season two episode titles, everything will become clear once we see the third season. I just don't wanna wait another half year! :scream:

    There was something magical about season two debuting a few days before Halloween.

    But of course I have zero will power and will power through the entire third season the first weekend its on, so...yeah. :rommie:

    Considering season 3 is set during summer break (and probably covers the Fourth of July as hinted by the poster), it makes sense to watch it during the summer anyways.

    But I hear ya on the lack of willpower. I usually watch the whole season in one day. I love this show that much.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned on here yet, the first Stranger Things novel, a prequel about Eleven's mother and Martin Ives, called Suspicious Minds, comes out Feb. 5.

    I'm glad we finally have a publication date for that. I started a thread sometime last year about that novel and the behind-the-scenes book when they were first announced.

    A four-part comic miniseries about another of Jane's fellow subjects comes out May 29.

    Revealed by Entertainment Weekly today, the next Stranger Things comic series, from Jody Houser and Edgar Salazar, will introduce Six—otherwise known as Francine. Unlike either Eleven or Eight, Six’s powerset is based around precognition, the discovery of which lead to her being exploited by both her parents and then eventually at the hands of Doctor Brenner. But Francine, like Eleven and Eight, manages to find a way out from the horrors inflicted upon her after receiving a vision of a future where she was free of Hawkins Lab.
    I'm looking forward to reading this, although I'll wait for the trade paperback as I do with all comics these days.

    Yeah, this one does sound intriguing. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the first miniseries. I am a little curious to see more what happened to Will in the Upside Down, but if the whole thing is just him running around by himself being chased by the Demorgorgon for four issues, I could see it getting kind of boring after a while.

    This is really a good trailer. Captures the 'feel' of 1985 and teases the story/action/mystery perfectly. Bring it on!

    Looks promising, and teasing some very bad things I'm sure are already being analyzed to death in YouTube videos.

    More than anything else, the theme of growing up (and all that carries with it) appears to be a major point of this season.

    I am looking forward to this, but I'm a bit worried how it takes more than a single calendar year to finish up every year of the story. if it goes on too long the kids are going to look too old for their show ages.

    True, but the Duffer Brothers have already said that they'll probably end the show after four or five seasons, as the characters move into high school, so that issue will be be dealt fairly easily.

    Psst! Look at the first post of the thread. ;)
