Netflix's star-studded, 2018 big-budget film, "Bird Box," ignited plenty of new mysteries for audiences to theorize about, and now, a sequel is headed our way.

On June 5, Netflix released the teaser for "Bird Box Barcelona," which is an expansion of the first film. Netflix's official logline for the sequel reads, "After a mysterious force decimates the world's population, Sebastian [Mario Casas] must navigate his own survival journey through the desolate streets of Barcelona. As he forms uneasy alliances with other survivors and they try to escape the city, an unexpected and even more sinister threat grows."

The dystopian thriller is based on Josh Malerman's novel of the same name. In the first film, which Sandra Bullock starred in as Malorie, a pregnant woman gets trapped in a sprawling California home with a handful of other survivors in the midst of a postapocalyptic event that's wiped out most of the rest of the earth's population. A mysterious, invisible entity descends upon the world one day, causing people to commit suicide in a grisly fashion once seen. Over the course of the hour and change that Malorie fights for her life, as well as the lives of her two young children, we hear the monster and see the effects of the creature's destruction and all the ways survivors are forced to cope with their horrifying new reality. But the monster, whatever it is, remains invisible to the naked eye.

About halfway through the film, a new threat emerges: homicidal people who are driven crazy by the evil entity are somehow able to avoid its suicidal urges and, in turn, dedicate their lives to forcing other unaffected survivors to "look." Malorie realizes her only option is to make a perilous three-day journey down a treacherous river to a rumored safe haven. Of course, to do so, she and her two nameless kids have to stay blindfolded the entire time. Not exactly a chill tubing trip, you know?

Fortunately, Malorie is able to complete the journey with both children intact, ending up at a former school for the blind where many people have taken refuge from the invisible monster lurking outside. The story wraps up with Malorie finally accepting her maternal instincts, bestowing names upon the boy and girl — Olympia and Tom — and presumably living happily ever after.
