Cancel all your plans because all eight new episodes are going to be dropped simultaneously.*Cough* I'm sick.

Which characters are returning for season three?

Eleven, Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas and Max are back to battle the supernatural in an explosive new series. With an ominously final episode named Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt, we know shit is going to go down.

What's in the new trailer for Stranger Things season three?

Netflix has been teasing us with trailers for months and we've been left speculating about the future of Hawkins town. The final trailer suggests the return of the old threat Mind Flayer. It's back with a vengeance and is determined to "end everyone!"

Watch the official final trailer for Stranger Things here:

Does Billy turn into an evil character?

From previous trailers and the recent poster for Stranger Things many fans have been left questioning whyY Billy (Dacre Montgomery) is below the rest of the cast in the shadows underneath the monster.

The final trailer then further hints that Billy may have become the host body of the monster, because he's in a junk yard being circled by a dark supernatural presence.

The Netflix synopsis gives very little away, but hints that the season is going to be packed with drama.

Netflix's description of the season says: "The gang have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear." Sounds epic.

Stranger Things season three comes to Netflix next Thursday 4th July 2019 8am GMT.
