While the mouthbreathers were busy tackling each other, America’s favorite band of misfits made a welcome return to our TV screens with a first look at the new season of “Stranger Things.”
Fox aired a teaser for the highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s acclaimed supernatural series during Super Bowl LI on Sunday night, and it did not disappoint.
The mere seconds-long clip opened with a retro ‘80s-style Eggo waffle commercial before giving us a peek of what we can expect in Season 2. There was a close-up of a very much alive Eleven, a glimpse of the boys dressed in Ghostbusters costumes (!), and a glimpse at the new multi-legged big bad, as the the words “the world is turning upside down” flashed across the screen.
The teaser also revealed a release date for the new season: Halloween 2017.
Netflix has remained tight-lipped about the details of the second season, but we do know that it will pick up in 1984, one year after the close of the first season.
According to executive producer Shawn Levy, “The Demogorgon was destroyed but evil wasn’t.”
“Stranger Things” Season 2 debuts on Netflix in 2017.
