Attention 'Stranger Things' fans who have finished binge-watching the show already: Netflix has a new series coming out, and it's bound to fill that Eggo-shaped hole in your heart.

The streaming service has just released the first full-length trailer for its new eagerly anticipated 10-part mini series 'Dark'. It's already been compared to 'Stranger Things' and 'IT', except much more scary, disturbing, and, well, dark.

And judging by the trailer, it's not going to have a hard time finding fans. It looks amazing.

Like the first season of Stranger Things, the show revolves around the disappearance of kids in a small town. In 'Dark's' case, two children go missing and the series centres on the town of Winden in Germany, instead of Hawkins in America.

The story centres on four families who are caught in a time-bending mystery that spans three generations, each one happening exactly 33 years after the last one.

Investigations into the disappearances ultimately opens abyss - like the Upside Down - which turns time on its head. The question isn't who has killed the children, the trailer reads, but when.

The series has the same message as its supernatural TV predecessor: Don't go into the woods, children. A supernatural monster might eat you.

And the similarities don't stop there. 'Dark' boasts a time-bending narrative, supernatural forces at work, fragile families and kids on bikes riding to places they probably shouldn't be.

But its creators are happy to be compared to the Duffer Brothers' mega hit.

"It's really exciting because if all those people who watched Stranger Things will at least think about watching Dark, I think that's a great opportunity for us. So keep comparing it," they told Deadline.

So get your laptops ready for streaming, 'Dark' is shaping up to be one of the best series of 2017.

The show comes out on December 1st with 10 episodes.
