Stranger Things 3, the third season of Stranger Things, was officially announced on December 1, 2017.[2] The season was released on Netflix on July 4, 2019.[3] It consists of eight episodes ranging from fifty to seventy-seven minutes in length.

The season has a time jump like the previous season, taking place in the summer of 1985.[4][5] The plot centers on secrets hidden within Hawkins's shiny new Starcourt Mall, while the Mind Flayer hatches a plot to defeat Eleven and take over the world.

The season introduces Steve's coworker Robin Buckley, lifeguard Heather Holloway, Hawkins Post reporters Tom Holloway and Bruce Lowe, as well as Soviet scientist Dr. Alexei and Soviet hitman Grigori, and Dustin's girlfriend, Suzie Bingham. In addition, the season sees Erica Sinclair promoted to the main cast.


It's 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer's heating up. School's out, there's a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group's dynamic, and they'll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart.

Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town's threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they'll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.

Plot Summary[]

June, 1984. A facility in Kamchatka, the Soviet Union...

Soviet scientists attempt to force open a gate to the Upside Down. However, the mission fails. Hitman Grigori kills a scientist under orders of Stepanov, who gives the other scientist Dr. Alexei one year. One year later in Hawkins, the divisive new Starcourt Mall has forced much of the town out of business. Mike and Eleven have begun a romantic relationship, much to Hopper's chagrin; he later threatens Mike into agreeing not to see her. Dustin returns from summer camp and sets up a radio tower to contact his new girlfriend, Suzie, but his friends ditch him; soon after, he accidentally intercepts a Russian-language transmission. Will, possessing a lingering connection to the Upside Down, privately senses that the Mind Flayer may still be alive. Rats congregate in an abandoned mill called Brimborn Steel Works, where they explode into an organic mass. On his way to a rendezvous with Karen Wheeler, Billy is run off the road by an unseen creature and dragged inside the mill. Billy escapes, but not before the creature induces a vision of the Upside Down. Tormented by further visions and voices, Billy is guided by the creature into kidnapping his co-worker Heather Holloway, taking her to the creature.

Nancy and Jonathan, working as interns at The Hawkins Post, investigate the home of Doris Driscoll, an elderly woman concerned about rabid rats eating her fertilizer. Max and Eleven bond to distract themselves from Mike and Lucas while shopping at Starcourt; Eleven breaks up with Mike after he lies to her about Hopper threatening him. Joyce investigates a strange loss of magnetism among objects at her home and workplace, accidentally standing Hopper up for a date. At Starcourt's ice cream parlor, Scoops Ahoy, Dustin reunites with Steve, who now works at the parlor. Steve's co-worker and former classmate Robin becomes curious about their activities, and helps them translate the Russian transmission; the three uncover a coded message.

Eleven uses her powers to spy on Mike, and later Billy, who senses her presence. She and Max discover that Heather has gone missing. Nancy and Jonathan find reports of missing fertilizer and strange behavior among rats across town, and they discover Mrs. Driscoll herself eating fertilizer in her home. Will fights with Lucas and Mike over their disinterest in playing Dungeons & Dragons, and flees to Castle Byers to be alone. Robin suspects the Russian message references a shipment arriving at the mall later that night; she, Steve, and Dustin watch armed soldiers oversee the delivery. Joyce convinces Hopper that the demagnetization is linked to the abandoned Hawkins Lab; upon investigating, Hopper is attacked by Grigori, the Russian operative. Max and Eleven track down Billy at Heather's home; after they leave, Billy and Heather subdue her parents, and bring them to the mill to be possessed by the Mind Flayer. Mike and Lucas find Will, and Will reveals that the Mind Flayer is still alive.

Hopper and Joyce force town mayor Larry Kline to reveal that he helped Russians buy properties across Hawkins. At Starcourt, Dustin, Steve, and Robin enlist the help of Lucas' sister Erica in order to access the suspicious shipping room. The four discover that the room is an elevator, sending them hurtling far beneath the mall. Nancy and Jonathan are fired by their boss - Tom Holloway, Heather's father - for harassing Mrs. Driscoll; Nancy visits Mrs. Driscoll at the hospital out of suspicion and watches her become possessed by the Mind Flayer. Will reveals his connection with the Mind Flayer to Mike, Lucas, Eleven, and Max, speculating that it has possessed Billy. They devise a plan to trap Billy in the pool's sauna to confirm he is possessed, but Billy escapes and nearly kills them until Eleven subdues him. Billy returns to the mill, where dozens of townspeople have since been possessed by the Mind Flayer.

Hopper and Joyce search one of the Soviet-owned properties, discovering a hidden laboratory. Grigori arrives to kill them, and they narrowly escape with a hostage – a scientist named Dr. Alexei – in tow. Dustin, Steve, Robin, and Erica arrive in a Soviet base under Starcourt. Hiding from Russian soldiers, the group observe experimental technology forcing open a gate to the Upside Down. Hopper and Joyce take Alexei to Murray Bauman – the only Russian speaker they know – to translate Alexei's speech; Grigori tries to follow the group but loses the trail. Nancy, Jonathan, Will, Mike, Lucas, Eleven, and Max theorize that Billy and Driscoll are possessed, or "flayed" by the Mind Flayer; the group decide to visit Driscoll at the hospital to learn more, but Nancy discovers Driscoll is missing. Eleven reconciles with Mike while at the hospital. Nancy and Jonathan are attacked by Tom and Bruce; realizing Tom and Bruce are possessed by the Mind Flayer, Nancy and Jonathan decide to attack. After killing Tom and Bruce, the two melt and amalgamate into a single organic mass, becoming a monster. Eleven uses her powers to scare the monster away; it flees to the steel mill, and becomes part of the larger creature.

In the secret base, Steve and Robin are captured, drugged, and interrogated, but Dustin and Erica rescue them. With Murray translating, Hopper and Joyce hold Alexei hostage, forcing him to reveal that the Russians are attempting to access the Upside Down via a portal beneath Starcourt. Hopper tries to inform Dr. Owens, but Joyce insists they return to Hawkins immediately, fearing that their kids may be involved. Grigori corners Kline at Hawkins' Independence Day fair, demanding he step up efforts to find Hopper. Mike argues with Max about relying on Eleven’s powers and inadvertently admits his love for Eleven. To find the Mind Flayer, Eleven uses her powers in an attempt to psychically communicate with Billy, learning of his troubled childhood and finding the Mind Flayer at the mill. Billy senses Eleven's presence, giving the Mind Flayer access to her location, and reveals that the Mind Flayer plans to kill her in revenge for closing the gate. The Flayed converge on the mill, where they are absorbed into the Mind Flayer's proxy; the creature finally breaks through the roof and begins to hunt Eleven.

At Hopper's cabin, Will senses the Mind Flayer approaching. The Mind Flayer and Eleven attack and injure one another; while the creature is incapacitated, the group flee to safety. After breaking into a supermarket, the group treat Eleven's wounds and gather supplies. Dustin and Erica hide a drugged Steve and Robin in the Starcourt movie theater; Dustin contacts Eleven's group over walkie-talkie to explain the situation, but runs out of battery power. Eleven uses psychic projection to locate Dustin, and the group travel to the mall. Steve admits that he has feelings for Robin, but she comes out to him as a lesbian. Hopper's group make their way to the fairgrounds in Hawkins to find the children, where they are spotted by Kline, who alerts the Russians. Grigori fatally shoots Alexei in front of Murray. Murray, Hopper, and Joyce evade several Soviet agents and learn the agents are looking for the children at the mall. Eleven's group arrive at the mall in time to stop the Russians from shooting Dustin's group. Eleven collapses, her wound pulsing.

Eleven rids herself of the piece of the Mind Flayer embedded in her wound, rendering her powerless. Hopper's group arrives, and plans are made to take Eleven's group to safety. Hopper, Joyce, and Murray make their way to the machine, with Dustin and Erica navigating from Dustin's radio tower. Billy and the Mind Flayer trap Eleven's group at the mall. The others attack the Mind Flayer with fireworks as Eleven frees Billy from its control. Billy sacrifices himself to protect Eleven, Mike, and Max. Hopper fights and kills Grigori, getting trapped in the process. Out of time, Joyce is forced to trigger an explosion, closing the gate, with Hopper seemingly being disintegrated in the process. The Mind Flayer's proxy dies as Dr. Owens arrives with military forces. Three months later, the deaths are covered up, Starcourt is destroyed, and a disgraced Kline is arrested. The Byers family and a still-powerless Eleven prepare to move out of Hawkins. Mike and Eleven confess their love for each other and make plans to meet at Thanksgiving. In Kamchatka, Russian guards are instructed to feed a prisoner, but "not the American", to a captured Demogorgon.

The Duffers stated they wanted to start the third season with a clean slate, intentionally ending the previous season with few cliffhangers, so that they can focus on creating a better story with more freedom.[7] They also hinted that several ideas that didn't make it in the second season may be used.[4] By mid-November 2017, the season was in the early stages of development.[8] In January 2018, producer Shawn Levy revealed all of the characters' story lines were planned out, and that the season would have eight or nine episodes, depending on the "amount of story that excites them." He also confirmed that Will Byers would not be the main victim this season, and that the friendship between Dustin Henderson and Steve Harrington would continue.[9] In February, it was announced the season would have eight episodes.[1]

In March, Levy also revealed that Season 3 would take place during the summer of 1985, a year after the former season and added that the relationship between Mike and Eleven well as Max and Lucas would continue. Moreover, he promised that Steve Harrington would have a much larger role.[5]

In an interview, Noah Schnapp told that the third season would combine both the darker and lighter elements of the previous two seasons. Additionally, he confirmed that Erica would have her own story-line with "someone from the cast".[10] At Stranger Con, he also hinted the possibility of seeing more D&D scenes in the season.[11]

In July, Levy gave more information on the season's tone, saying it would go to "darker" places while also mentioning it has "heart and humor." David Harbour mentioned that the season takes more risks[12] and hinted at the inspiration from several films released during 1985.[13] Harbour later revealed that one such film is the 1985 comedy film, Fletch.[14] In addition, he described his character, Hopper, as being almost a combination of the previous versions of the character from the two prior seasons.[13]

In late July, Levy stated the season would be the "most ambitious" season yet, with inspirations being John Carpenter and other '80s horror directors.[15] Later, he also clarified his previous statement regarding the season's tone, saying that there would still be "plenty of summer fun."[16] According to Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown, the season would be the "Summer of Love".[17][18]

In September, Sadie Sink hinted that Starcourt Mall, the new location previously teased would play a big role in the season.[19]

As stated by Dacre Montgomery, Billy Hargrove's storyline would be a huge part of the season.[20]

In late January, Natalia Dyer mentioned that she didn't see any scenes from the third season yet, but teased that it would be "bigger, darker and scarier" than the first two seasons.[21]

In late May, the Duffers revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the Mind Flayer was still alive in the Upside Down and would find another way into Hawkins. They also teased that the season would explore the theme of change among the kids who are experiencing their transition period.[22]

In mid-June, speaking to Empire, Noah Schnapp revealed that the Mind Flayer would still be linked to Will in the season. Finn Wolfhard also reiterated that the season would combine the fun aspects of Season 1 and the horror aspects of Season 2.[23]


Borrowing inspirations from the movies of David Cronenberg, John Carpenter and George Romero, the Duffer Brothers sought out to create a darker premise for the third season. They also wanted to pay homage to many classic pop cultural films of the mid '80s. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, they revealed the names of some such films, which include Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Romancing the Stone, Midnight Run, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park.[24]

While discussing inspirations for season three with the cast and crew, Bodysnatchers came up the most with Philip Kaufman's Invasion of the Bodysnatchers being one of them. According to actor Charlie Heaton, E.T. and The Goonies didn't so much inspire this season as much as scarier films like Sam Raimi's Evil Dead.[25]


On March 2, Variety announced that Priah Ferguson, who portrays Erica Sinclair, had been upped to a recurring role. Her storyline for the season was described as "No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous new threat." They also revealed that Maya Hawke will be joining the cast as Robin, an "'alternative girl' bored with her mundane day job. She seeks excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, Ind."[26]

In April, it was announced that Cary Elwes, best known for his performance as Westley from The Princess Bride, had been cast as Mayor Kline, who is described as "handsome, slick, and sleazy. He is your classic '80s politician — more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs." Additionally, Jake Busey was revealed to have been cast as Bruce, a journalist for The Hawkins Post "with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."[27]

In May, it was revealed that actress Francesca Reale had been cast as Heather, a lifeguard at the Hawkins Community Pool who will "become the centerpiece of a dark mystery."[28]

In late September, casting director Carmen Cuba revealed that she and the Duffers were still searching for new additions to the cast. Cuba stated they had a challenging storyline that requires them to continue searching for new talent.[29]
