Starring Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine, the first eight instalments follow the search for a young boy who vanishes in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in 1983.

The investigation into his disappearance unravels a series of mysteries involving secret government experiments, supernatural forces and a strange little girl, played by 12-year-old British actress Millie Bobby Brown.

The trailer for the second series continues the show’s 80s theme, with some of the young characters dressed in Ghostbusters outfits, and provides a glimpse of Millie’s character Eleven and a huge monster lurking in the sky.

The cast of Stranger Things recently won the Screen Actors Guild Award for best ensemble in a drama series.

Millie was also nominated for best actress in a television drama series at the ceremony.
