Since the series' debut, fans have known that the main antagonists in Stranger Things are the otherworldly creatures that dwell in the Upside Down. From government agencies to bullying classmates, other threats have emerged for our heroes, with peculiar IMDb credits possibly revealing who will be ancillary villains in Season Three of the series.

WARNING: Possible spoilers below for Stranger Things



Last month, one Reddit user noticed that the IMDb listing for the series included cast members for the upcoming third season, with some characters being described as "Russian Soldier," "Russian Guard," and "Russian Goon." Shortly after this information hit the internet, the description of many of these characters were shortened to "Soldier," "Guard," or "Goon."

What has piqued many fans' curiosities is that, while many references to Russia were scrubbed from the IMDb page, there remains one stunt performer who is credited as "Russian Guard," igniting speculation that Netflix aimed to remove references to Russia though one listing slipped through the cracks.

All this speculation could amount to nothing, as you don't need a specific level of clearance on IMDb to be able to modify a TV show's credits. The changing character names could all be chalked up to one person having a bit of fun and intentionally trying to rile up fans. However, it's possible that these clues could hint at major revelations in the third season.

The American government played a crucial role in previous seasons of the series, due in large part to organizations not only opening up a portal to the Upside Down, but also these organizations conducting experiments in which Eleven was treated like a lab rat. With the amount of time that has passed since the series began, it's possible that Russian scientists have discovered similar portals, or possibly heard about these American experiments and sent in some members of its military to exploit this knowledge.

Were this the case, it could raise suspicion as to why the Russian characters would need their identities concealed. However, the '80s saw Americans at high levels of paranoia, thinking that Russian spies had infiltrated our society. It's possible that the third season could lean into that angle, with characters emerging that are Russian spies whose identities aren't confirmed until later in the season.

As fans wait any official footage from the upcoming season, we're left to speculation until the third season premieres sometime in 2019.

I'm getting a bit burned out on all these 80s nostalgia properties. I'll watch watch this series with high hopes, but can't we all agree to start revisiting the 90s sometime soon? Or maybe the 19th century?

Netflix bestowed a New Year's gift to all Stranger Things fans last night: the release date of the show's third season. Stranger Things 3 will debut on July 4, 2019.

Just before 2018 ended, Netflix tweeted out another trailer for Stranger Things 3 (the above video is a shortened version from Netflix's YouTube channel). The nearly four-minute-long clip takes viewers back to New Years' Eve 1985, specifically Dick Clark's iconic New Year's Rockin' Eve broadcast. Mysterious interferences interrupt the broadcast, sending static onto the screen along with strange messages like "when blue and yellow meet in the west."

We also learn that the Starcourt Mall advertisement from a previous teaser trailer is a commercial that ran during Dick Clark's broadcast—at least in the Hawkins, Indiana area.

Just after the ball drops and the fireworks go off, the tagline "one summer can change everything" appears. It's followed by the date July 4, 1985, confirming the rumors that Stranger Things 3 will take place, at least in part, during the summer of 1985. The past two seasons have followed Mike, Eleven, and the others during preceding falls and winters, so the new summer timeline will be a change of pace.

Netflix followed up by tweeting a poster for Stranger Things 3 right after it debuted the release date trailer. The poster shows Dustin, Max, and Lucas ogling at fireworks in the sky, while Mike stares at Eleven, who is distracted by something ominous and out of frame. And whatever Eleven sees, Will sees it, too.

The third season's release date has been highly anticipated for a while now. At the end of last year, Netflix announced a new Stranger Things game that will folllow the events of season three, and it released the titles of the next season's eight episodes in a separate teaser trailer. But with that hype, no release date came. Now, all Stranger Things fans can start their countdowns and plan to celebrate the Independence Day holiday in Hawkins—it will likely be a crazy one.
