Netflix’s “Stranger Things” has released its much anticipated season two trailer.

The season two trailer premiered at Comic-Con International on Saturday and sets the tone for what’s in store. It begins with the adventurous gang clamoring over their favorite arcade game. Everyone seems at peace after battling the Upside Down, a dark alternate universe that parallels the human world, yet sinister forces cling to Will (Noah Schnapp).

As his friends continue their game, Will hears an eerie voice call out his name. He then follows the voice and is transported to the Upside Down version of the arcade. Will now struggles with a new evil, an enormous spider-like monster. Mike (Finn Wolfhard) disrupts his nightmare while ensuring if he is okay.

The three-minute trailer signals that the monstrous forces are stronger than ever. At the end of season one Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) was left in the Upside Down, however, she has returned to the real world. A remix of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” plays in the background with a montage of the group’s new challenges. The teaser ends with the iconic disturbing laughter found towards the end of Jackson’s “Thriller” music video.

Netflix renewed the series for a second season with nine episodes on Aug. 31, 2016. Brothers Matt and Ross Duffer created, produced, and directed the series. Both will return for the new season alongside executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The series hails through 21 Laps, a production company run by Levy and Cohen.

Set in the fictional small town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, a string of supernatural events occur upon the disappearance of a young boy. These occurrences include the appearance of a psychokinetic girl, who aids the missing boy’s friends in locating him and unraveling an unimaginable mystery.

“Stranger Things” first premiered last July to critical acclaim and won a SAG Award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series back in Feb.  

Season two will premiere on Oct. 27th.
