More ‘Stranger Things’ Coming Halloween, and Here’s the First Promo

Ready to reconnect with the shaved waffle girl who lived in Winona Ryder’s basement? Well, you’re going to have to wait another nine months.

Last night, during the season finale of football, Netflix aired the first promo for what they’re calling Stranger Things 2 (which somehow does seem more apt than “Stranger Things, Season 2,” doesn’t it?). The 30-second spot announced a Halloween premiere for the series, and it seemed to reveal that the supernatural threats are getting bigger and more Lovecraftian this time around. There’s an enormous, many-limbed creature descending from a blood red sky!

Unfortunately, we have to wait until October 31 to find out whether it’s Barbthulu.

Please help these sad nobodies and:
