What happens in series 3?

We know that the third season will be set in 1985, which is less than a year after the last series ended.

A teaser video has shown that there’s a new mall in Hawkins, and we’re expecting it to act as the backdrop for much of season three.

In fact, it will also be the new workplace of Nancy Wheeler’s ex-boyfriend Steve Harrington, who will get a job in the mall’s ice cream parlour alongside newcomer Robin, who’s looking for a little excitement in her life outside of her mundane day job.

We know Robin will uncover a dark secret in Hawkins, and with Steve having been a key part of rescuing Will Byers from the Upside Down, it seems likely that she’ll be drawn into the group’s dealings with monsters.

Lucas Sinclair’s strong-willed little sister Erica is also set for a bigger part this season as she and her friends get involved in a risky fight to save Hawkins, and Eleven will of course be a key part of the plot again.

And then there’s still the little matter of the Mind Flayer to deal with...

You can sign up to Netflix with BT in two ways: on your BT TV box or through your BT account online.
