Ahead of its premiere this year, the first image from the second season of Netflix’s sci-fi show Stranger Things has come online. Posted by Entertainment Weekly, the image shows Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), who are in costume as Ghostbusters.
Additionally, the first teaser for Stranger Things Season 2 will air during the Super Bowl this Sunday. You can see a roundup of all the commercials here.
This image comes just days after new details about Season 2 came to light, including the reveal of who Lord of the Rings actor Sean Astin plays.
In November last year, producer Shawn Levy explained that Season 2’s plot will showcase the main characters coming to terms with the events of Season 1. “Will Byers was in that Upside Down for a while,” he said. “So Season 2 is about this determined desire to return to normalcy in Hawkins, in the Byers family, in that group of friends, and it’s the struggle to reclaim normalcy and maybe the impossibility of it.”
Levy will direct two episodes of Stranger Things‘ second season: chapters three and four. There are going to be nine episodes in all. In addition to his work on Stranger Things, Levy was recently named as the newest director for Sony’s long-in-development Uncharted movie.
According to Matt and Ross Duffer, Season 2 will be “darker and weirder” than the first season. It’s also been confirmed that Millie Bobby Brown’s character, Eleven, is coming back for Season 2.
Stranger Things Season 2 is expected later this year, but currently has no set release date.
