The 'Stranger Things 3' Trailer Just Dropped And Things Are Getting Dark In Hawkins

The Netflix hit is back and creepier than ever.

Stranger Things 3 is almost here and the sneak peek looks like things are worse than ever in Hawkins.

For a quick refresher on last season: we left things with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) having just closed the portal in that terrifying cage dangling under the ground (OR SO WE THOUGHT!), and she now has a birth certificate making her Hopper's (David Harbour) legal daughter.

Billy -- played by Aussie actor Dacre Montgomery -- is still hot but terrifying and as last season ended, that HUGE thing was looming over the town as the kids were blissfully unaware of the doom about to hit.

Honestly, that's about where our detailed knowledge ends because it was released two years ago and we watched all nine episodes in the space of three days.

The main gist of what you can expect from Stranger Things 3, based on the trailer, is that the Mind Flayer is back and Billy is about to become his new Earthly host.

"You let us in," says a creepy voiceover. "And now, you are going to have to let us stay."

Eleven is still working her magic in the form of raising her arms and concentrating really hard, and Hopper talks about her being their best fighter, so what does this mean? Is it a great pep talk? Is he about to bench his MVP? WHO KNOWS?!

There are also an uncomfortable amount of weapons around these children -- who, let's remember, are still children.

The trailer also features plenty of callbacks to other classic movies, including this extremely 'Ghostbusters'-looking scene:

Outfits complete with proton packs.

You can't tell me this isn't ectoplasm. This moment looks exactly like the 'Jurassic Park' kitchen scene:

There are also a few new faces this season:

Cary Elwes is coming in as Mayor Kline, a previously unseen character; Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's daughter Maya Hawke has joined the cast as 'Robin' an "alternative girl" bored with her job, and then there's this guy who is DEFINITELY bad news:

Nobody with this haircut has ever been a good guy.

The full season of 'Stranger Things 3' will drop on July 4 on Netflix, so make sure you clear your calendar!
