FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS


Verdict

This season of Stranger Things is an entertaining, albeit familiar sci-fi adventure that brings back its 80s nostalgia in full force without neglecting its characters. The series finds itself walking somewhat in place with a lack of new, interesting characters and repetitive, one-note villains and tropes. However, the focus on pop culture references, music and Easter eggs from the decade continues the strong and unique atmosphere of this series. This pairs well with a strong, thrilling storyline filled with character moments, strong development and relationships that continue to elevate this show to its highest potential. From its tone to its writing, Stranger Things season three proves that if something isn’t broken it doesn’t need to be fixed.

Score: 8.5/10
