Stranger Things season three is here! The acclaimed Netflix series dropped its first new season since October 2017 and what a fun season it is. Before you batten down the hatches and dive into the eight-episode binge—or you already have, which is quite impressive—we’re here to show you what you didn’t see on TV.
Below, get a look at what went down behind the scenes of Stranger Things season three. There are scenes from the July 4th carnival, the action at the Starcourt Mall, the woods (of course) and Hawkins’ community pool.
There are no spoilers here, aside from a look at some of the totally rad 1980s fashion on your favorite characters.
The new season takes place in the summer of 1985 as your favorite kids, including Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) transition into teenagers. Love is in the air, as is danger, it is Hawkins after all. Go behind the scenes now!
