Stranger Things Invites You to the Mall Next Summer

Is a premiere date hiding in this fun commercial teaser?

By Chris Morse

Netflix hit series Stranger Things is all about feeding on your nostalgia for the '80s, so what better way to tease its upcoming third season than a retro-style mall commercial featuring a couple of your favorite Hawkins residents? Netflix invites you to the Starcourt Mall, which is opening next summer!

The deliciously '80s teaser commercial is topped off by a cameo from Steve, who is now working with series newcomer Robin (Maya Hawke) at the Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Shop. You can bet that at least part of the show will be taking place here at the mall, which hopefully won't be turned completely upside-down by the end of the season.

This commercial may be doubling as an announcement for when season 3 of Stranger Things is set to premiere, but we'll have to wait and see for an exact date. It looks like we will likely be waiting until summer 2019 to return to Hawkins, Indiana. As always, we will keep you posted when we hear more!
