Stranger Things, everyone's favourite 1980s-set alien mystery series, has given viewers a (sort of) sneak peek at what season 2 of the show might look like.
Saturday Night Live's latest episode featured host Lin Manuel Miranda take on the role of Dustin with Ghostbusters' Kate Mckinnon as Eleven, shaved head and everything, as series creators The Duffer Brothers (or, ya know, two new SNL castmembers) offered viewers an exclusive look at an upcoming episode.

Clearly the real-life series director Shawn Levy was impressed by Lin's performance, tweeting him after the show with the single greatest casting idea we have ever heard.
Yo @Lin_Manuel, when we cast Dustin's long lost big brother in #StrangerThings Season 9, you, Sir, are IN! #SNLinManuel— Shawn Levy (@ShawnLevyDirect) October 9, 2016
Please god let this happen! Preferably with some freestyle rapping thrown in for good measure.
Stranger Things returns to Netflix in September 2017.
