The second season of the Neflix sensation Stranger Things is now less than a month away from hitting the steaming service, and fan excitement is getting real. The trailers have really set that hype train in motion, showing us just how good it promises to be.

This season, Winona Ryder won't be the show's only 1980s icon. Entertainment Weekly has unveiled some brand new images featuring The Goonies' own Sean Astin, who plays Bob Newby, an old friend of Joyce (Ryder) — and the manager of the Hawkins branch of Radio Shack — who becomes her boyfriend. He also goes way back with Jim Hopper (David Harbour).

EW released another image featuring Astin and Ryder together, except this one doesn't look so happy. The two are embracing each other as if something bad has just happened.

Alongside those two images, Astin is also featured on one of the Entertainment Weekly collectors covers alongside Ryder and Harbour; it's being called the "The Grown-Ups Cover."

Alongside the photos featuring Astin, several other sneak peek images in EW feature a brand new look at Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and a first look at brand new character Billy (Dacre Montgomery).

The Goonies partially inspired Stranger Things, so it's fitting to have Astin join the series — of course, this time he's on the other side, playing an adult instead of a kid. Regardless, he will likely deliver the same charm that he brought to the 1985 classic and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix on October 27, 2017.
