2019 may go down as the greatest year for film and TV in the history of… film and TV.

Game of Thrones, Peaky Blinders, Lion King, Toy Story 4, Avengers: Endgame, Star Wars: Episode IX – it’s a great time to be alive (providing you *hopefully* make it that far).

Another you can add to that list is Stranger Things, which is so powerful that the show can put out a teaser with the episode titles of season 3 and it’ll actually generate excitement.

Which is exactly what they’ve done.

The new trailer features the names of each of the season’s episodes appearing on screen one by one, as haunting instrumental music plays in the background.

After flashing the episodes’ names across the screen, the trailer wraps up with a simple line alluding to what awaits fans next year. “In the summer of 1985, the adventure continues.”

Check it out below:

The trailer reveals that the season’s eight episodes have the following titles:

“Suzie, Do You Copy?”

“The Mall Rats”

“The Case of the Missing Lifeguard”

“The Sauna Test”

“The Source”

“The Birthday”

“The Bite”

“The Battle of Starcourt.”

In case you didn’t know, this isn’t the first STS3 trailer we’ve seen; the original trailer appeared in July and was a feature for the fictional “Starcourt Mall” — one that was full of 1980s culture references and lots and lots of brilliant shots of Steve Harrington.

Notably, Starcourt Mall is also mentioned in the most recent trailer as the final episode – “The Battle of Starcourt” seemingly as the location for the season finale’s battle.


Other titles also give away a few juicy clues; for example, new Stranger Things cast member Francesca Reale is playing a Hawkins Community Pool lifeguard named Heather, which suggests either she or one of her colleagues goes missing during “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard”.

Of course, everything else at this point is just guesswork, but what we do know is that Stranger Things creators, the Duffer brothers, recently confirmed this will be the “grossest” season yet, while actress Natalie Dyer — who plays Nancy Wheeler — has said the new series “may be the biggest yet”.

Can it be 2019 already?
