After a summer of monumentally hyped movies that turned out to be duds, Stranger Things was a refreshing surprise. The show dropped on Netflix without much fanfare and became a hit organically because it's a terrifyingly good 80s nostalgia trip—not because of any marketing campaign. And it's coming back for a second season next year.

On Wednesday, Netflix announced plans for season two, coming sometime in 2017, and dropped a cryptic teaser trailer making use of the show's already iconic title sequence.
