Streaming giant Netflix’s original series Stranger Things came out of nowhere and took the world by storm just over a year ago. The show proved to be a relentlessly fun homage to 80’s cinema, and audiences are craving for more. Netflix knows anticipation is sky-high for the follow-up season, and they’re making us wait until October of this year to soak up the synth-scored monster fest once more. The official synopsis of the new batch of episodes is as follows:

It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

Now, tame those goosebumps rising up and check out the newly released character posters (twelve, to be exact) below to whet your appetite.

Stranger Things 2 brings back the gang from the first season (sans Barb, RIP) and adds a few newbies this time around: Sean Astin, Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery, Paul Reiser, and Sadie Sink.
