Target is gearing up for 'Stranger Things 2' with a bunch of new items

The retailer won't just be selling Eggo waffles.

Target just made us super excited for the nostalgia that's sure to come with the release of Stranger Things 2.

The hit Netflix series is coming back for a second season on Oct. 27, and it released a new trailer Friday that shows Eleven with curly hair. 

And Target is getting in on the Stranger Things action.

The Minneapolis-based retailer teamed up with Netflix for a bunch of exclusive products, like T-shirts, coffee mugs, action figures and DVDs that look like a VHS tape. (See details about all the goodies right here.)

Plus, Target already sells Eggo waffles – so you'll be all set for the Netlifx binging that's sure to happen in two weeks. 

Most of these items will be available at Target stores starting Sunday, with the Season 1 DVD available Tuesday, Oct. 17. 

And this isn't the only merch from a Netflix show that'll be showing up in Target's aisles. 

Mark Tritton, an exec at Target, says they're getting started with Stranger Things, but they plan to "expand deeper into the Netflix lineup." 

There's no word on what shows will be featured at Target in the future.
