The truth is out there -- way out there -- in the spooky first trailer for Netflix's new original series "Stranger Things." We don't just want to believe Winona Ryder's '80s return will be supernaturally badass, we already believe!
Ryder stars as Joyce, the mother of a boy who goes missing under very mysterious circumstances. The eight-episode series, which premieres Friday, July 15, is set in Indiana in 1983.

Here's the full rundown from Netflix:
"A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80's, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director."
Winona Ryder talked to People about the series last month, when the site shared a few first-look photos:
"I think the audience will love the nostalgic voyage back in time before technology had completely took over. Kids were asked to put their toys away at dinner – not their phones. Yet, there were astronauts were going to space and government conspiracies loomed. It was just such a different world back then."
In the same interview, Ryder said this is a genre she enjoys watching but hadn't explored before, and that drew her to the project. "It's all about trying something new."
