Will Byers may have been rescued from the depths of the Upside Down but trouble is still brewing Hawkins, Indiana, when Season 2 of Stranger Things returns to Netflix. The streaming platform JUST announced that season two of the breakout series will return on October 27th so break out those Eleven Halloween costumes and get ready to binge!

We repeat: Stranger Things returns on October 27th.

The series picks up nearly a year after the Demogorgon’s defeat  — set around Halloween 1984 — but Hawkins isn’t totally done with the world of the Upside Down. According to the official Netflix description, it’s safe to say that things are going to continue to get weird.


Netflix also released season two art, which seems to warn that a storm is on the horizon:

This poster is full of ’80s magic and we 👏 are 👏 here 👏 for 👏 it👏!
The entire cast — minus Shannon Purser because RIP Barb — returns for the second season, alongside Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Will Chase, Brett Gelman, Paul Reiser, and OG Goonie Sean Astin. The first season was quietly released last July but quickly emerged as one of the biggest shows of 2016.
It’s safe to say that when October 27th rolls around, all eyes will be on Hawkins, Indiana.
