A surprise Stranger Things season two trailer dropped during the Super Bowl

Netflix has used the Super Bowl to announce the return of Stranger Things. And then the internet rejoiced.

Last summer's 1980s-set science-fiction hit for the streaming service will return for a second season on Halloween later this year.

Netflix previewed the season in a trailer that debuted during yesterday's Super Bowl.

It opened with what looked like an eighties-era TV commercial before showing a montage of scenes from season two.

For children of the 80s, it was full of nostalgia - at one point, the cast are seen dressed up in Ghostbusters uniforms.

Fans quickly lost their minds with excitement.

Stranger Things earned high praise from critics for its first season and received a Golden Globe nomination for best drama series.

Winona Ryder was also nominated for a Globe for her turn as Joyce Byers.
