Season two of the hit Netflix sci-fi series now has a release date of October 27, but little can be gleaned from the clip accompanying the date announcement about what the plot will involve.

With the warning "1984 only gets stranger", the promo clip features the series' theme music and shows the four child stars cycling along a deserted road under a menacing red sky.

However, the lack of detail did not stop fan excitement over what season two would bring.
