As expected, Stranger Things fans will be able to enjoy the new season in time for Halloween

Netflix confirmed Tuesday the spooky season 2 will premiere on Oct. 27, just days before All Hollows' Eve. The streaming platform also shared a new, albeit brief teaser showing its four young stars—Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp—on their bikes, approaching a fiery sky.

The network has released only this short official description for season 2: "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 dangers in the new season are said to be "bigger, darker, often times scarier," according to executive producer Shawn Levy, who recently promised fans will "be more scared" by the "more ambitious" second season.

It's probably not a coincidence that this latest teaser and premiere date arrives just ahead of Thursday's Emmy Award nominations, which are expected consist of more good news for the show.
