On Sunday, Netflix gifted Super Bowl viewers with a teaser for season two of Stranger Things. Although the short trailer didn't reveal too much, it did answer a question that has been plaguing fans since the season one finale: Eleven is alive.

But after defeating the Demogorgon and subsequently disappearing, where exactly did she go?

What's Eleven been up to since season one?

Netflix teased in November that Millie Bobby Brown would be reprising her role as Eleven. If anything, it seems — based on the quick clip of her from the trailer — she's found herself in the Upside Down, the same dimension that took hold of Will Byers and loyal Barb (RIP) in season one.

Supporting this theory is a tweet sent out by the Stranger Things account in November 2016, one that illustrates, at the very least, the show is not done exploring the Upside Down.

Regardless, the short teaser supports the theory that Eleven is coming back in some capacity. That's good enough for us.
