The hit sci-fi series Stranger Things returns for Season 3 on July 4, and this new trailer the kids have to deal not only with growing pains, but with monsters.

It’s hard enough just growing up in Hawkins, Indiana. We see clips of the kids trying to make that awkward transition from kids to teenagers on the threshold of adulthood, but what would Stranger Things be without a healthy does of interdimensional chaos? If there was any doubt as to what the series was about, one of the shots towards the end shows the Shadow Monster tearing through a hospital.

Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp.

Season 3 of Stranger Things arrives a full two years after the premiere of Season 2. In the interim, the series’ creators, the Duffer Brothers, have faced allegations of verbal abuse on the set of the show as well as plagiarism.
