It's been over a year and a half since we last had 'Stranger Things' on our screens and fans will be delighted to hear that it's been worth the wait. The first reviews are in and some are calling it the show's best season yet.
The official plot synopsis for 'Stranger Things' season 3 reads: "It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer's heating up. School's out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear."
'Stranger Things' drops on Netflix this Thursday on July 4th, so don't worry there are zero spoilers in the below reviews.

So there’s not much more I can say, but I was so impressed with the way specific ships sailed & laughed out loud at least once per episode (mostly at DAD Hopper). Also a shopping scene 🥰 #strangerthings

#StrangerThings3 reaction! There are some bumps along the way, but overall it’s another solid season that ends very well. There are fun references and slight groaner ones, but the characters are still very likable and ground the series, which is a big part of its success.

I think I can finally tell you that #StrangerThings is the show's best season yet. It's not perfect (more on that later) but there are moments that are so good, so funny, so deeply heartfelt that it will leave you breathless. It's also spectacularly gross and I loved it.

Rare is a third chapter this compelling, this affecting, and this integral. #StrangerThings 3 is a testament to the Duffer brothers' creative vision. They are true dungeon masters of story and character. My (rather lengthy) review: https://t.co/elVEJDxTBY pic.twitter.com/zITjtS9lne
