In a little over a month, "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" will debut, and it has two new TV spots to get fans excited.

Starring Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, the sequel to last year's "Maze Runner" is about the same group of kids, but with even more dangerous challenges ahead of them.

For instance, instead of being stuck in a gleaning with a puzzling maze, the Gladers are braving the scorching heat as they cross the dunes to survive.

In an interview with Slash Film, O'Brien spoke about the upcoming sequel.

Admitting that "Maze Runner" is not as big as other Dystopian films ("The Hunger Games" and "Divergent", for example) O'Brien revealed he liked how the series "still feels really intimate." He shared, "We don't have the marketing of that, it's not in everyone's face like that. I think the only reason we caught some people's attention was because it's cool. We made it really special, I think. I hope."

He also spoke of the difference between the books and the film, mostly about his character, Thomas, and Kaya Scodelario's Teresa, the biggest being that their telepathy failed to translate in the movie. O'Brien shared, "For me, in the book, what I noticed, the spirit, we're not doing it entirely because we don't have the telepathy thing, but they're distant. All of a sudden, that connection isn't there."

One of the fan-favorite scenes from the book is likely to make it to the big screen, though. The "Teen Wolf" star shared that he is likely to come across the Crank (zombie-like creatures) who wants his nose. "There's a bunch of things that we do try to at least, you know, I think this is going to be great for the book fans. This, at least, is going to be really, really f------ cool."

At this point, we can only predict how "The Scorch Trials" will fare beside the first film. According to International Business Times, last year's "Maze Runner" grossed over $102 million.

Movie Pilot noted that while "Maze Runner" has a good story in its own right, with "The Hunger Games" reported to add more movies, it seems that James Dashner's adapted trilogy can never go past its shadow. Nevertheless, the recent TV spots promise more, as the group overcomes the Scorch, abandoned old cities and zombie-like Cranks.

Check out the teasers below.

"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" will hit theaters on September 18.
