Stranger Things’ season two premiere is still two weeks away, but this Friday the 13th, Netflix has gifted us with a brand new trailer for the hit series’ upcoming second season. Perhaps not shockingly, things still don’t look good for Eleven and company.
The new trailer shows Will having his first large-scale vision of the Upside Down on Halloween, and unfortunately, his very professional-looking Ghostbusters costume won’t save him. It looks like this season, the kids are teaming up with the teens because sometimes you need a monster-fighting teammate with a license—and a nail covered bat.
Any fan worried about a possible sophomore season slump will be relieved to see Stranger Things greatest hits present in the season two footage. There’s Winona Ryder yelling about her son (this time frustrated at doctors who don’t know how to help poor Will). There’s Eleven moving things with her mind and enjoying some Eggo waffles (but now she’s sporting some sweet, dark curly hair). And of course, there’s a continuing will-they-or-won’t-they vibe between Nancy and Jonathan (as she points out, “Don’t you think it’s weird, how we only seem to hang out when the world’s about to end?”)
The upcoming season also promises to be much more twisted than the first. Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike on the show, explained, “I think this season will be a lot darker. A lot more horror-oriented,” in an interview with Emmy Magazine, and the new trailer definitely gives off some serious horror movie vibes. This might be the kind of premiere you want to throw a viewing party for; not just for the fandom camaraderie, but, you know, for protection from rouge Upside Down Demogorgons.
Stranger Things’ second season is set to hit Netflix on October 27. Watch the final trailer in full, below:
