The third season of the sci-fi horror series premieres on Netflix on July 4, USA time, meaning it will be available for Kiwis to binge-watch on July 5.

Netflix is making sure Stranger Things fans start 2019 with some good news.

"One summer can change everything", reads the poster, which also features fireworks and the other major characters of the show.

Netflix is starting the New Year right and has given the people what they want: a Stranger Things season 3 trailer AND the much-anticipated air date.

Meaning that our next installment of Eleven and the gang will land on Independence Day, 2019.

We know we need to defensively get better. 'We play the way that the game tells us to play, ' he added. I know the distance is big - seven points - especially because they are so solid and consistent.

Netflix announced the Stranger Things 3 release date on New Year's Eve in a new teaser trailer and date announcement.

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will join the series in guest star roles.

Netflix sensation Stranger Things will return to the streaming platform this winter. (What that might mean, we have no idea.) The apple slowly drops, but the footage tilts, turns, and wobbles before cutting to more green text that promises the summer of 1985 will be one to remember.

It shows a local New Year's broadcast from 1985 slowly turning "upside down" as the familiar theme music kicks in. The words "When blue and yellow meet in the West" flash across the screen around the 0:14 mark.
