It’s a little hard to believe but it’s been over a year and a half since season two of Stranger Things ended.
Season three is scheduled to drop on July 4 but so far we’ve had almost no info about the upcoming episodes to go on, other than the context-less episode titles and dad Steve Harrington working hard for the kids.
But it appears that the Stranger Things marketing machine is starting to awake because a new trailer has just been dropped and we have our first big look at what to expect for the upcoming eight-episode season.
And based on the brief 7-second clip, it looks like Stranger Things 3 is going to be a gritty prequel to Pixar’s Ratatouille of some sort. I mean, just look:
Joking aside though, this clip reveals very little and quite a bit at the same time.
We know that one of the upcoming episodes is titled “The Mall Rats”, seemingly in reference to these tiny four-legged visitors, and it is confirmed that season three will revolve around Hawkins’ Starcourt Mall. Combine that with the clip’s caption of “It’s almost feeding time”, it feels like something ominous will be descending upon the little Indiana town and its new mall.
Or it could just be Remy and his fellow cohort of rats moving into Hawkins to run the many restaurants in Starcourt Mall.
We’re still not sure how the Russians or the Upside Down fits in with all the rats but given how poor Will Byers copped a good share of unfortunate luck over the last two seasons, chances are that he’s in for a miserable and furry journey in season three.
