An unknown entity is teased as the potential next threat to Hawkins in Stranger Things 2's Super Bowl ad.


The entity is a gargantuan and spider-like creature originating from the Upside Down. It appears to have four appendages that split in the middle, possibly giving it a total of eight "legs".

Behind the scenes

In an interview, actor Finn Wolfhard referred to the entity as "the Shadow Monster". Whether this is the entity's actual name or simply a nickname given by the show's cast and crew is currently unclear.[1]


Many fans have compared the entity to the Thessalhydra, which was mentioned in Chapter Eight as the final boss of the boys' Christmas Eve D&D campaign.
