The next season of Stranger Things comes out on July 4, 2019

Stranger Things 3 will debut on July 4, 2019.

Stranger Things Seasons 1 and 2 are now available on Netflix. Which means a whole lot of Americans are going to skip their annual fireworks and Brit-bashing to marathon the new series.

Ringing in the New Year with the merriest news, fans went upside down with joy as Netflix shared the highly-anticipated release date announcement on Twitter on Monday, December 31, 2018.

Penny Marshall, of ‘Laverne & Shirley,’ dead at 75
Her gift for physical comedy helped earn her accolades, including three Golden Globe nominations. Marshall also directed "A League of Their Own ", and " Awakenings " starring Robin Williams .

These phrases were parts of a secret message that was hidden in Morse code - the communication form utilized by Eleven in last season -in a recently released Stranger Things companion book.

"One summer can change everything", reads the poster, which also features fireworks and the other major characters of the show. They want to deliver something bigger and better than past year. Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Charlie Heaton, and Noah Schnapp will all be back for season three. Footage of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve flashes on the screen, and the ball is about to drop to celebrate a new year (aka 1985).

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will join the series in guest star roles. The action in the upcoming third season won't take place during New Year's Eve, or Halloween for that matter. There are also cryptic shots of a computer interface with clues such as the words: "When blue and yellow meet in the west".
