Netflix has announced July 4, 2019 is the day it will release the eagerly awaited new season of its hit series, “Stranger Things.”

Netflix used the New Year’s holiday to tweet an image showing the show’s cast with fireworks and the words “July 4.”

Netflix also released a video showing footage of the countdown on Dick Clark’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” in 1985  — which is the year in which the new season is set — before revealing the Season 3 premiere date. Netflix has been teasing the new season, and just last month it released a brief trailer featuring the episode titles.

The sci-fi/horror series set in fictitious Hawkins, Indiana, has been a huge breakout hit for Netflix.
