The show, starring Winona Ryder and David Harbour hooked audiences when it launched on Netflix last year. It made a big impact on this year’s awards season, scooping the Screen Actors Guild prize for outstanding performance by the key cast and securing two Golden Globe nominations.

A spine-chilling trailer for the new series, set to launch over Halloween, was released during the Super Bowl event earlier this month.

As well as a hint towards the horrors to come, it includes a glimpse of best friends Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Will (Noah Schnapp) dressed up in Ghostbusters outfits.
