When Stranger Things premiered last summer, no one anticipated it would be Netflix's new runaway hit. The 80s nostalgia proved to be a huge draw, though, and the show made a star of its young cast and became the most ubiquitous source of Halloween costumes that year. Season two was announced way back in August of last year, and we've been waiting patiently ever since. The peek during the Superbowl and the recent teaser material Netflix released online have given us peeks at what's to come, but they've been mere morsels of information. After all this waiting, some real footage has finally arrived. Saturday at Comic-Con, Netflix released a full trailer for the upcoming season.

In the trailer, we start seeing the impact of the Upside-Down. "Nothing is going back to the way it was," an ominous voice tells us, and it's clear the Upside-Down never really left when Will sees it take over a local arcade. Despite being back in Hawkins, his time in the Upside-Down won't stop terrorizing him. The trailer unleashes a torrent of new scenes to speculate on, all to the tune of Michael Jackson's classic Thriller. Check out the video below.

Stranger Things season two premieres on October 31 on Netflix.
