Of course, things aren’t fun for long, as some clips show the gang coming to terms with growing out of early adolescence and creatures from the Upside Down appear to threaten the group again.

Taking place in summer 1985, the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, is also in a state of transition, as the mayor opens a mall and hosts a fair. In one clip of the trailer, beloved babysitter Steve Harrington manages to get a job at one of the mall’s restaurants and is greeted by Dustin with a special handshake.

“Stranger Things 3” premieres July 4. Watch the trailer below:
