As we learned on Friday, the sequel follows a single mother (Carrie Coon) and her kids, Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), as they adjust to life living in a creepy farmhouse in Oklahoma. The house, it turns out, was left to them by a mysterious grandfather, and the surrounding property is filled with dusty relics of a bygone era of ghostbusting, which hasn’t been in vogue for decades. As Paul Rudd’s Mr. Grooberson clarifies, there hasn’t been a ghost sighting in 30 years. That’s about to change, however, as some slimer-colored green light is seen pouring from an abandoned mine in the area.

Also, as has been teased for a while now, the trailer appears to confirm that the family are descendants of Egon Spengler, the ‘buster played by Harold Ramis in the original two films.
