The First Stranger Things Season 3 Trailer Leaves Us With More Questions Than Answers

The following contains spoilers for the first two seasons of Stranger Things.

When we last see the crew from Stranger Things, things are looking up: Eleven has closed the portal between the Upside Down and the town of Hawkins, and young love is blooming between several new couples . . . most notably, Lucas and Max and Mike and Eleven. But of course, there's still plenty of unfinished business to worry fans of the Netflix series. The "Mind Flayer" that plagues Will Byers in season two is still seemingly out there, Max's awful stepbrother, Billy, hasn't gone anywhere, and there's always a shadowy cloud of potential evil on the horizon for Hawkins. Plus, based on cryptic things the cast has said about season three, there's plenty to be nervous about!

So when Stranger Things dropped an '80s-tastic teaser for the new season on July 16 — only a day after the show's two-year premiere anniversary — it left many fans scratching their heads. The 90-second teaser doesn't bother answering any lingering questions from season two; instead, it introduces a new shopping mall for the town of Hawkins. Sure, it's presumably a setting for the upcoming season, but what about the characters we know and love?

While we have more questions than answers about the teaser, we've broken down all the things we do glean from the season three teaser ahead . . . including the show's return date.

Here's what we know about season three:

Based on the teaser trailer (which you can watch above), here's what we know about the show's third season.

1. Steve Harrington has a new job. Thanks to his shining moment at the end of the teaser, we know that beloved babysitter Steve will have a new gig for season three: scooping ice cream at the mall. Based on his bored expression during the mall's TV spot, it's not exactly the most fulfilling work for a former high school baseball star who moonlights as a monster hunter.

2. There's a totally new teen character to meet. This teaser is the first glimpse viewers get of actress Maya Hawke playing mysterious new character Robin. According to previous reports, Robin is an "'alternative girl' bored with her mundane day job. She seeks excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, IN." Now, we know that her boring day job is working alongside Steve at the new mall ice cream shop.

3. Starcourt Mall will likely be the center of season three. Series stars like Finn Wolfhard (Mike) and Priah Ferguson (Erica) tweeted their excitement about the mall despite not being featured in the trailer, so we can assume they'll each have screen time at the mall sometime during the season.

4. Stranger Things won't return anytime soon. The trailer ends with "Starcourt Mall, coming next Summer!" Fans have interpreted this to mean that the series — which last released around Halloween 2017 — won't drop its third season on Netflix until Summer 2019. The suspense is killing us!

Naturally, fans are upset that the season won't be here for another year.

But many are feeling nostalgic after watching the mall-focused teaser.

And they have big expectations about the mall for season three.

But most importantly, everybody is just really enthusiastic about Steve. (As they should be!)
