We've already seen the episode titles, and now we have a release date for Season 3 of Netflix's Stranger Things. That'd be July 4, 2019. Independence Day for those of us in the U.S. Or Sit-Inside-and-Binge-Stranger-Things Day for everyone else.

What all do we know? It's the mid-'80s, we're in a mall, and we've got some new faces to go along with the old ones:

Veteran actor Cary Elwes (he'll always be Wesley to us) joins up as Mayor Kline, who's described as "Handsome, slick, and sleazy. Your classic '80s politician — more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs." (Note to Netflix: That sounds a lot like 2018 politicians, too.)

And Jake Busey shows up as "a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor." And that, frankly, may be the most realistic piece of casting we've seen in a long while.

And, yeah, there are Easter Eggs all up in this trailer. Have at it.
