Stranger Things: Get a first look at the Super Bowl ad
UPDATE: See the full ad below.
Football shmootball. Now there’s an even bigger reason to tune into the Super Bowl this Sunday on Fox: EW can exclusively reveal that Netflix’s pop culture phenom Stranger Things will air a new teaser during the massive sports event.
EW is also debuting an image from the commercial, featuring Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) dressed as Ghostbusters.
The second season of Things takes place in 1984 — one year after the events of the first season — and has been shrouded in secrecy aside from a few details. But executive producer Shawn Levy (Arrival) did offer EW this tease: “The Demogorgon was destroyed but evil wasn’t.”
Stranger Things 2, which stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Paul Reiser, Sean Astin, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, and Matarazzo, Wolfhard, and McLaughlin, will debut this Halloween on Netflix.
Netflix’s hit sci-fi series follows a group of kids in the '80s battling supernatural forces in Hawkins, Ind.
