Stranger Things Season 3 Promo Introduces Maya Hawke’s New Character

Plot are being kept under wraps, but fans can expect another time jump when Stranger Things continues, picking up with its young characters in the summer of 1985.

As if the Duffer brothers could make Stranger Things any more 80s than it already was, they're introducing a brand new setting in the first teaser for the third season of the show: A shopping mall.

Namely, the fact that it says the mall is coming "next summer" - which many took to mean that there will be no new Stranger Things until summer 2019 (and, lets face it, they're probably right).

Press play above for the latest surrounding the upcoming season of Stranger Things, and as always, stay tuned for more. Instead, viewers get a look at a very '80s, very retro advertisement for Hawkins's new Starcourt shopping mall.

We see two of those characters briefly in the teaser: Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and newcomer Robin (Maya Hawke), working at Scoops Ahoy, a fictional (I think) ice cream joint. After all, Netflix hasn't confirmed an official debut date at this time. Season 3 will drop on Netflix sometime in 2019. While it was assumed that Season 3 would come a year later, for Halloween 2018, it appears we might have a longer wait ahead of us. The first season of the series actually launched on Netflix nearly two years ago to the day, on July 15, 2016.

The teaser plays out like a corny old commercial for the Starcourt Mall.

That's Maya Thurman-Hawke (daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman), one of the new cast members in the third season.

Of course, Netflix doesn't have to release the season to be ready for the Emmys.
