Netflix still isn’t ready to show anyone what the third season of Stranger Things looks like, so they must stall for time with barely related videos. If it’s the Christmas season, they can get away with showing the neighborhood kids of Hawkins, IN wrapping presents and going nuts.
We have confirmation that all of the male voices have gotten deeper. At least one of them does the Floss, but that was fully expected. It’s a mystery who they’re wrapping these presents for, but one recipient must be Negan from The Walking Dead, given the presence of a bat-shaped gift with nails sticking out.
Unless I’m crazy, this video also contains the sentence “Xuxa, I will never forget you.” Maybe I’m crazy.
We still don’t know much about this coming season, other than the fact that the main centerpiece will be a new mall built in Hawkins that quickly becomes the latest Ground Zero for an Upside-Down invasion. We anticipate the season will be more original than that, though, as one of the cast has commented the overall plot is “a big risk.”
Risks aren’t always appreciated, especially on the Internet — just ask Rian Johnson. But a safe and predictable rehash won’t win fans over either. The solution: just give people a totally normal down-to-earth season that’s completely off the wall and swarming with magic robots. Also, you should win things for watching.
Stranger Things Season 3 premieres next summer.
