Calm down! The gang is coming back in 2017.

If you're among the 14.07 million adults who watched Stranger Things in July, then spent the rest of the summer in sleepless message board binges as you mourn Barb, develop theories about Steve, and generally contemplate what you're supposed to do at night when you don't have those soothing synth sounds to come home to -- well, first off, stop biting your nails; back away from Reddit. Your family -- no, your actual one, not Winona Ryder -- is worried about you.

Secondly: rejoice. As has been rumored for weeks now, Netflix confirmed today that yes, Virginia, there is a second season. Early this morning, the streaming service tweeted the following teaser:

According to Variety, the second season will contain nine episodes (to the first season's eight), meaning those mysterious phrases are likely episode titles.

"We want it to feel like a big movie," the showrunners apparently told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour last month. "But there’s a bigger mythology, and there’s a lot of dangling threads at the end. We could explore it if Netflix wanted to continue."


With 14 million people tuning in, it's not exactly a mystery why Netflix did, in fact, want to continue -- which leaves us that much more time to ponder what adrenaline-fueled, nostalgia-seeped adventures season two might bestow.

Only one thing's for sure: Eleven's excited. And we usually like to side with Eleven.
