‘Stranger Things’ com­ing on July 4

Belleville News-Democrat (Sunday) - - Lifestyle - BY GINA SALAMONE

It’s go­ing to be an ex­plo­sive Fourth of July for fans of “Stranger Things.”

The pre­miere date for the long-awaited third sea­son of the hit Net­flix sci-fi show was fi­nally an­nounced as July 4 – a whop­ping year and nine months af­ter Sea­son 2 kicked off on Oct. 27,

2017.

In an in­ter­est­ing twist, the spooky se­ries that fol­lows a group of young friends as both real-life and su­per­nat­u­ral forces wreak havoc on their fic­tional town of Hawkins, In­di­ana, will be set dur­ing the sum­mer this time as op­posed to fall and win­ter like the past two sea­sons.

The trailer for the up­com­ing sea­son, re­leased at mid­night on New Year’s Eve, be­gins with a faux broad­cast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” with the late TV host help­ing count down to 1985. Fire­works then go off, and the new pre­miere date is re­vealed.

A new poster pic­tures young teen lovebirds Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) hold­ing hands. They’re sur­rounded by their pals Will (Noah Sch­napp), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lu­cas (Caleb McLaugh­lin) and Max (Sadie Sink) as fire­works ex­plode in the sky.

In the first and sec­ond sea­sons, the kids are threat­ened by crea­tures from the Up­side Down, an al­ter­nate di­men­sion ac­ci­den­tally cre­ated by Hawkins Na­tional Lab­o­ra­tory af­ter it se­cretly con­ducted su­per­nat­u­ral ex­per­i­ments.
