Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) has his next project ready to hit very soon — later this month, in fact. However, if you were hoping for another horror project or something that similarly tickles the nostalgia bone, you may be disappointed. As we reported on months back, his news show is called Prank Encounters, and it’s quite the elaborate prank show.

Netflix has released the first trailer, and in it, we see some of the horror-themed pranks they put their victims through. As we previously reported, the season will span eight episodes and will follow two people per prank who are under the impression that they’re starting a new job…only for things to so very wrong.

Below is the official trailer for Prank Encounters:

“This October, don’t go outside, don’t open the door, and don’t trust anyone…  especially Gaten Matarazzo!   Prank Encounters is the most elaborate hidden camera prank show ever devised.  Hosted by Gaten Matarazzo (known for his role as Dustin in Stranger Things), each episode of this terrifying and hilarious show takes two complete strangers on the surprise ride of a lifetime. It’s business as usual until their paths collide and fear meets funny when their one-day assignments turn into supernatural surprises.”

What do you think of this? I know there was some controversy with people thinking the show was too mean-spirited, but does it look that way to you? Sound off in the comments below!
