The new character posters for Season 3 of Stranger Things come with a riddle for the changes ahead (Picture: StrangerThings/Netflix)Thirteen new character posters for Stranger Things have teased the riddle of Season 3.
With more insight into how ‘one summer can change everything,’ the official promo images hint that *nothing* will be the same in Hawkins this summer.
The posters dropped on Monday night, with just six weeks to go until the next season drops on Netflix, and each one comes with a hint that something particularly terrifying is on the horizon.
‘One friendship can change everything,’ reads the tweet beside two posters starring Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Max (Sadie Sink), who were seen bonding in the Season 3 trailer two months ago.
Similarly, it looks like Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Nancy (Natalia Dyer) will be closer than ever with a hint that reads: ‘One Jancy can change everything.’
The same can be said for Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour), whose teamwork – and subtle romantic ties – have earned them a new ‘Jopper’ nickname too, apparently.
One of the poster trios hints that ‘our boys’ Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Will (Noah Schnapp) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) can ‘change everything,’ with Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo).
Elsewhere, we get the impression that Dustin is still harbouring hero worship for Steve (Joe Keery) as the pair get grouped with his new pals from the ice cream shop, Scoops Ahoy, at the Starcourt Mall.
The caption reads: ‘One scoop can change everything.’
But then again, that could refer to a journalistic ‘scoop’ that ties in with The Hawkins Post, which will play a bigger part in the new season.
Then there’s Billy Hargrove, who could *single-handedly* change everything, since he’s the only character to go solo in tweets from the Stranger Things account.
There have been early hints that Billy could the one to turn into a monster in the latest season after a trailer appeared to show creepy vein-like marks bursting through his skin.
All signs seem to point towards a mysterious virus spreading around Hawkins, but it’s still unclear how Billy became infected.
The first scene from the forthcoming series, which accompanied the posters on Monday, showed Billy in his new lifeguard job, perhaps hinting that the virus is waterborne.
Season 3 of Stranger Things arrives on Netflix on July 4, 2019.
