The confirmation avid fans have been waiting for has arrived. Netflix officially greenlit a second season of its summer smash hit, Stranger Things, set to premiere sometime next year.

The streaming service revealed the second season will be longer than the first with nine episodes: Mad Max, The Boy Who Came Back to Life, The Pumpkin Patch, The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog, The Secret Cabin, The Brain and The Lost Brother.

Stranger Things follows inexplicable events in the town of Hawkins, Ind. surrounding the disappearance of Will Byers.

The show is the epitome of ‘80s nostalgia, with hat tips to Stephen King, The Goonies, Stand By Me and E.T.

Stranger Things became the show that no one anticipated would take off as fast as it did. Before its episodes arrived on Netflix July 15, teasers and trailers were few and far between.

Almost two months later, you can't scroll Facebook or Twitter without seeing references to Eleven, The Upside Down and adorable Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo).

REVIEW: 'Stranger Things' on Netflix is a thrilling ode to '80s sci-fi and cult classics with a horror twist. 

Check out the first teaser trailer for Stranger Things season two.
