Season 3 of the awesome Stranger Things debuts on Netflix on July 4th, and the excitement is palpable. Stranger Things is Netflix’s most popular show, which is no small feat. considering it has offerings like Orange Is The New Black, Black Mirror, House of Cards, and The Crown. The upcoming third season will be set during summer, which marks a tonal shift for the series. Here is the synopsis for the incoming season:

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.

As if the new season of the show wasn’t exciting enough, Baskin Robbins is pairing up with netflix to produce an exclusive line of incredible Stranger Things-themed ice creams!
