The Stranger Things Season 2 Super Bowl advert.
The weekend delivered good news for fans of Netflix's critically acclaimed '80s-style, horror nostalgia-fest, Stranger Things—Season 2 will return on October 31, 2017.
The Halloween release date was accompanied by a teaser trailer that aired during the Super Bowl—an event best described as an endless stream of needlessly expensive advertising loosely tied together by short excerpts of brawny men throwing a ball around a field. According to the New York Times, a 30-second ad like the one for Stranger Things Season 2 costs an eye-watering $5 million (£4 million) to air.
Still, it's money well spent for those eager to glean any information about the new season. There's a short excerpt of an Eggo Waffles advert, an upside-down Eleven, and plenty of creepy horror imagery. Plus, there's a shot of the boys dressed up in Ghostbusters outfits, complete with makeshift Proton Packs, for the ultimate in '80s nostalgia feels.
