OK, we admit, the first slice of The Maze Runner, while certainly enjoyable, didn’t exactly leave us panting for more.

But here’s the trailer for sequel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, set for a September 17 release.

Here’s the synopsis:

In this next chapter of the epic“Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all. 

And here’s the trailer:

Directed by Wes Ball, The Scorch Trials also features the likes of Aidan Gillen and Nathalie Emmanuel.
