The second series of Stranger Things is still a few months away from our Netflix lists, so of course it's only natural that the team are having fun by dropping hints about what we can expect from our next foray into the Duffer brothers world to ensure the wait for more episodes is as tense as possible.

And the latest tease we have to mull over hints that, this time around, we'll be going even deeper into the mysterious world of the Upside Down.

Yep, the creepy underworld that we got glimpses of - and poor Will Byers saw a lot more of - will be back with a vengeance, according to the show's composers.

Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, who score the Netflix hit, spoke about their approach to their work at South by Southwest this week, and revealed their excitement about the new storylines they get to play with.

"There are new characters, fun, and the Upside Down will be more of a place… you'll spend more time," Dixon teased. "So we'll make a lot more weird music this time around."

And that certainly matches with what co-creator Matt Duffer had to say about the show's second season, which will pick up a year after season one left off, when he dropped hints about the season's plot line earlier this year.

"Will seems to be seeing images from the Upside Down - the question is whether they're real or not," he said. "So it seems like he's having some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder."

The gang will all be back for season two, along with two new siblings moving into town and we'll also get more of Eleven's backstory when the Netflix hit returns.

And, more importantly, producer Shawn Levy has also previously promised that we will have #JusticeForBarb this season. Which is long overdue if you ask us.

Stranger Things will be back on October 31, 2017.
