There are more shenanigans coming in our favourite 80s-themed horror TV series! And if you thought the first season was already dark enough, Stranger Things 2 turns the dial up to eleven.

We’ve already had a glimpse of the impending threat to come, and it looks like the dark forces that threaten the town of Hawkins, Indiana are simply unrelenting. The Upside Down just won’t let go of a traumatised Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), and his friends understand that something is coming for them.

“These are not nightmares. It’s happening,” says Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour). There are shots of a frantic Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder), locks unlocking themselves, references to Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid and Halloween, and the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the return of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown)!

Stranger Things 2 premieres globally on Netflix on October 27.
