In October, Netflix subscribers and waffle-lovers who have been waiting for the second season of Stranger Things will finally get their wish.

The streaming service announced Tuesday that fans can revisit Hawkins, Indiana on October 27 with nine new episodes.

Variety reports that the announcement falls in line with a teaser trailer which ran during the Super Bowl saying the show would return this Halloween (see below).

Fans also get a peek at what may lay ahead for the kids with apocalyptic new poster art (see headline photo).

The official description for season two says:

“It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demagorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

The first season spawned a massive following, even a best-selling soundtrack. Hollywood may take notice of the horror/sci-fi series this Thursday when the Emmy’s are announced.

Matt and Ross Duffer created the series, and Millie Bobby Brown as the mysterious girl named “Eleven” with special powers became a breakout star.

“Stranger Things also stars, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp and Charlie Heaton.
