How big is the Stranger Things phenomenon? Big enough for Netflix to run a Super Bowl ad teasing season two.
Ahead of the ad’s debut this Sunday, Entertainment Weekly has revealed a photo from the teaser, which shows Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) dressed as Ghostbusters. Now, that’s a movie I would watch.
It’s unclear why the trio are dressed as Ghosbusters. The pumpkins in the background suggest it’s Halloween—duh—but no other classmates appear to be celebrating the holiday. In any case, their Ghostbusting outfits look wonderfully faithful to the beloved franchise.
Where’s Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Will (Noah Schnapp)?
After hitting Netflix last summer, Stranger Things quickly became a pop phenom, receiving critical acclaim for its atmosphere, writing, and homages to 80s genre films. Out of the many originals Netflix has produced, it is arguably the best. The show recently won a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award for best ensemble cast, besting Game of Thrones, Westworld, and The Crown.
While we don’t have an exact date for its return, Stranger Things season 2 is expected to hit Netflix later this year.
