There's a new trailer out for this, and it is really fucking good

Without giving anything away, I really like the look of the whole thing, especially the summery feel, after season 2 was very Halloween focused. They've made it look really properly wistful about getting older and your friendships changing, which is a really clever way to deal with the very visible ageing of the characters. It could so easily have been more of the same, but it looks to be evolving in a really natural, interesting way.

I might give it a chance but couldn't finish series2. Just felt the novelty wore off

Yeah, I rarely quit a series a few episodes in. But Stranger Things S2 was just coasting by pressing my nostalgia button and nothing else.

I would've stuck with it (so it may have improved as it went on) but the feeling of being manipulated by a forced love of the 80s was too much.

It is rubbish, do not watch under any circumstances.
