Even though The Duffer Brothers are currently busy shooting the third season of their smash-hit supernatural series, Stranger Things, fans still have a long wait ahead of them before they can return to Hawkins and catch up with their heroes. And if the release date teased at the tail end of this newly dropped teaser trailer is accurate, it’s even longer than we initially thought! It’s believed that the somewhat lukewarm reception to last year’s Season 2 prompted The Duffer Brothers to announce the show was going to skip 2018 entirely, buying them considerably more production time than previously, but this new information suggests a summer 2019 premiere, meaning a gap in the region of 20 (!) months between 2 and 3. Narratively, this unusual scheduling will actually compliment things, as it’s also widely known that 3 will skip forward in time by several years (this will also navigate the tricky issues brought on by teenage growth spurts!). The fun new teaser provides us with little in the way of story or character details, but it does hint at a major new location for Season 3, and an appearance by a fan-favourite! To tide us over while we wait for Season 3, Dark Horse comics have today also revealed that they will be debuting a four-issue mini-series later this year. The comic book will reportedly retell the events of Season 1, but from Will Byers’ perspective. Since the poor little dude spent the entirety of Season 1 trapped in the Upside Down, this should make for some interesting reading, and also opens it up for a possible appearance by Barb! Expect more details on the comic book series when Dark Horse unveils it at SDCC later this month. Fans of the Stranger Things canon will also be enthused to hear that several tie-in novels are also on their way from Penguin Random House; the first book, written by acclaimed author Gwenda Bond, will act as a prequel to the series and focus on Eleven’s mother and the top secret MKUltra programme. Expect this title to arrive early 2019.
