WATCH: Teaser dates ‘Stranger Things 3’ for July 4
The third season of “Stranger Things” has put its mark on a July 4, 2019 release date.
“Stranger Things” and its eerie town of Hawkins, Indiana will be back for a third outing in July 2019, dodging a recurrence of the series’ 2017 Halloween introduction in favor of an Independence Day holiday weekend in the United States.
As well as Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Winona Ryder and David Harbour featuring among a host of returning actors, there are also series debuts for Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s daughter Maya Hawke (the BBC’s 2017 “Little Women” miniseries), Gary Busey’s son Jake Busey (“The Predator”, “The Frighteners”), the “Saw” and “Princess Bride” graduate Cary Elwes, and “Haters Back Off!” star Francesca Reale.
Netflix released a brief teaser in support of the date announcement, with its 1985 aesthetic in keeping with the season 3 setting.
A July 4 release puts “Stranger Things” Season 3 in close proximity to the theatrical release of a new entry in the “Annabelle” horror franchise (July 3) and live-action superhero movie “Spider-Man: Far From Home” (July 5), the first Marvel Cinematic Universe entry released after April’s ensemble piece and blockbuster-in-waiting “Avengers: Endgame”.
