While we still have to wait for the summer of 2019 until the third season of ‘Stranger Things‘, Netflix has been kind enough to share their standard initial teaser which also includes a full list of the episode titles for the next season. The logline for the series directly at the end of the teaser shares that “In the summer of 1985, the adventure continues.” This date is fitting as we’ll be waiting for a summer release of the show.
What is fun is that it should also be noted that in 1985 by the summer we’ll have seen ‘The Breakfast Club’ having been released in February, ‘Ghoulies,’ ‘Friday the 13th: A New Beginning’ and ‘Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment’ having a March release, May had given us ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’.
As for Summer itself? June showed us ‘The Goonies’ and ‘Cocoon’ while ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,’ and ‘Day of the Dead’ all dropped in July. We’re not sure how far into the year it’ll be but ‘Fright Night,’ ‘Weird Science,’ ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,’ ‘The Return of the Living Dead,’ and ‘Teen Wolf’ were all August releases which you could see being referenced here.
There is so much iconic 80s goodness released in 1985 that it should ramp up the nostalgia factor that much more!
You can view the ‘Stranger Things 3’ logo and official listing of the episode titles in the video below!
So this time around we can expect the episodes to be titled as follows:
- 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
An early teaser of the show let us know that the new mall in Hawkins is titled The Starcourt so one can expect that we’ll see at least some of the action take place in the mall with titles like ‘The Mall Rats’ and ‘The Battle of Starcourt.’
Another point of note is that the third episode is titled “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard.” We previously learned that Francesca Reale would be joining the season as “a popular lifeguard at the Hawkins community Pool” and I’m sure you can guess who is likely to go missing here.
Are you excited for the third season of ‘Stranger Things’ to drop on Netflix next summer? Do you feel that they’ll be able to continue capturing the magic of ’80s while giving us a solid horror story at the same time? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
