Last year, Stranger Things made its grand debut on Netflix. Since the series was released on July 16, 2016, it has won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, Producers Guild of America Award for Episodic Television Drama, and the MTV Movie & TV Awards for Show of the Year and Best Actor in a Show. (More recently, it was nominated for 18 Emmy Awards.) Today, the trailer for the second season was officially revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.
Once again, viewers are placed back in the quaint town of Hawkins, Indiana but the mood is noticeably darker—even when the boys are messing around at the local arcade and dressing up as the Ghostbusters for Halloween. (The year is 1984, after all.)
The aftermath of the demogorgon is still fresh on everyone's minds and Hawkins Lab isn't far out of sight. Even though Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) escaped from the Upside Down, things aren't exactly back to normal yet. Mike (Finn Wolfhard) is still desperately searching for Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), who is trapped somewhere deep in the Upside Down.
Vincent Price’s spooky monologue from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" really sets the tone for the creepy trailer as well, which closes with a long, menacing cackle. Stranger Things returns to Netflix on October 27. Get a glimpse of what's coming next in the video, below.
