Along with the release date, a new teaser clip and poster were unveiled early on Tuesday, just minutes after the New Year had descended on the United States east coast.
Before that tweet, Netflix shared a retro video showing parts of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve countdown from December 31, 1984 (I can bet you money I watched this live back in the day). It's all pretty exciting, especially if you are a huge Strange Things freak, who has been waiting for what seems like an eternity for new episodes to arrive.
Just as the ball dropped in the US East Coast, Netflix rang in the New Year by revealing the release date of sci-fi series Stranger Things season three.
"We're thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out", Ross Duffer told Vulture previous year.
Check it out in full above, then have a peek at the newest poster for Stranger Things season 3 below.
After almost a whole year of anticipation, Netflix has confirmed that the adventure will continue on July 4, 2019. The footage of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve is intercut with shots of an old-school green-on-black computer screen, which at one point displays the phrase, "WHEN BLUE AND YELLOW MEET IN THE WEST".
A new poster has also been released which teases, "One Summer can change everything".
It announces the new setting of summer 1985. Mike is in love with Eleven. We don't know what it means.
There's also the reinforcement of The Starcourt Mall theme in titles including The Mall Rats and The Battle Of Starcourt.
