Stranger Things Cast Season 3

Three brand-new characters are reportedly set to be added to the upcoming third season of Netflix’s hugely popular sci-series Stranger Things.

Short casting-call style descriptions were first featured on US pop culture site That Hashtag Show last Saturday and detail a potentially corrupt town Mayor, slimy newsreader and seemingly innocent elderly woman.

The former is named as Larry King and labelled as a being “a classic 80’s style slick politician, pathetic and driven only by his own interests” while the TV star is titled just as Bruce “a morally compromised news reporter in his 50s. Outwardly sexist, overweight and bedraggled.”

Stranger Things’s final new character for the moment is called Patricia Brown “a sweet neighbourhood elder in her 70s who will spend a lot of time tending her garden and offering the neighbourhood kids advice.”

Casting announcements have yet to be made and it’s not currently known how large or what kind of a role they’ll be playing.

That hasn’t stopped fan theories from circling online of course which have been debating on how much Mayor Kline knows about what’s been going on in his town and whether or not Patricia will end up spying on the gang for those involved with the laboratory experiments.

Creators Matt and Ross Duffer have previously confirmed Stranger Things’s highly-anticipated third season will once again consist of eight episodes and is due to enter into production sometime around April this year.

A concrete release date hasn’t been released but it’s expected to hit the streaming platform sometime in either late 2018 or 2019.
