The first trailer for Stranger Things season 3 is now live, and summer can't arrive quick enough.

The trailer features a fantastic soundtrack as we've come to expect from the Netflix sci-fi drama, with bursts of Motley Crue's 'Home Sweet Home' and a remix of The Who's 'Baba O'Riley' aka 'Teenage Wasteland'.

The Emmy-nominated series will return for a third season this summer, and will catch up in the mid-1980s.

Watch the trailer in full above.

The trailer has glimpses of rats, spray paint, summer jobs, July 4th celebrations, scary monsters, and plenty of romance, along with the arrival of puberty for the characters of Hawkins, Indiana pals Mike Wheeler, Dustin Henderson and Lucas Sinclair plus Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven and Sadie Sink’s Maxine 'Max' Mayfield.
