The ball wasn’t the only thing that dropped on New Year’s Eve.
While many of us actually got up off our couches to ring in the New Year, Netflix secured its relevance in 2019 by dropping a huge bomb about one of its most popular series. And many of us didn’t even notice.
That’s right. We’re talking about “Stranger Things.” The highly anticipated third season of the insanely popular thriller and coming-of-age story is due to return July 4 of this year. (RELATED: ‘Stranger Things’ Teaser For Season Three Drops With Movie-Themed Episode Titles)
The series drove its fans wild after it released a teaser trailer about the highly-anticipated third season back in December:
Though it’s only been on for two seasons, “Stranger Things” has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards already this year, one for Best Dramatic TV Series and another for Best Supporting Actor for its star David Harbour.
But the series hasn’t been all success. Back in April, news broke that the creators behind the drama, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, were being sued for allegedly stealing the idea for the show at a party back in 2014. The brothers shrugged the accusations off as “meritless.” So far, the matter has not made its way to court.
And though Netflix tends to keep its viewership data relatively concealed, “Stranger Things” is reportedly the most popular series on the streaming platform.
We’ll have to wait a few more months to see if season three lives up to the hype.
