We already know that there's a strong connection between Stranger Things and the world of Stephen King. Although the Duffer brothers have denied that the Netflix series exists in the world where Pennywise is the true villain, it's hard to deny that just about everything about the show has a strong Stephen King vibe. So will we continue to see more of the similar terrors from It in Stranger Things Season 3?

In the second season of Stranger Things, the ill-fated Bob Newby shared a haunting story with Will Byers about a clown named Mr. Baldo that terrorized him in nightmares. Not surprisingly, the tale led to speculations that "Mr. Baldo" was actually Pennywise. However, this isn't the only time that the series made a reference at King.

When Joyce Byers and Jim Hopper visited Terry Ives, Terry's sister Becky asked them if they have read any Stephen King novels. Of course, this one was a reference to King's book Firestarter but it also confirmed that the author exists in the Stranger Things universe.

Although it is still unclear whether Stranger Things 3 will once again pay tribute to King or the terrifying tales he has created, there is a huge possibility that we'll get more interesting Easter Eggs in the show. The scary transformation of Billy Hargrove in the final trailer might be a hint. However, it looks like we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out.

Stranger Things Season 3 will premiere on Netflix on July 4.
