“The World Is Turning Upside Down” flashed across the screen at the beginning of the Stranger Things second-season teaser, which was first aired during the Super Bowl as Netflix introduces a darker side to the hit series.

What keeps fans on the edge of their seats may not be so much the plot, but the fact that the next installation of the multiple-award-winning series is set to be released on Halloween, October 31, this year.

According to The Verge, there are not many details about the second season besides the fact that it will take place a year later and that the town will have to deal with the consequences that surfaced at the end of the first season.

Nonetheless, director and executive producer of the hit TV show, Shawn Levy, recently told Vanity Fair: “Season Two is bigger and potentially darker in its stakes. The threat, which in Season 1 was to Will Byers, has grown. That’s all I’m going to say! But, I will say Season 2 has a bigger cast and is definitely loyal to the kind of magical storytelling that we established in the first season. It’s character-based and still about our core group of characters.”

The ad featured some intense and mysterious elements that will be addressed in the next season. Among them are a giant spider-looking silhouette in an eerie crimson sky, the kids dressed up in Ghostbusters costumes, an Eggos commercial, and Will, one of the characters from Season One looking very afraid.
