Stranger Things season 4 adds eight new cast members
It's thought that new episodes will arrive toward the end of next year.
Netflix’s beloved sci-fi series Stranger Things has added eight new cast members to its upcoming fourth season.
Not too much has been confirmed in regards to its plot so it’s not currently clear exactly how these characters will fit into the narrative.
Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund will play Victor Creel, a “disturbed” and “intimidating” convicted murderer who’s imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital.
Game of Thrones’s Tom Wlaschiha will play Dimitri, a guard at the remote Russian prison where Hopper (David Harbour) is being held. Although he appears charming and friendly, can he be trusted?
Jamie Campbell Bower will play Peter Ballard, a kind, caring orderly who works at the aforementioned psychiatric hospital and is fed-up of the brutality he witnesses there.
Eduardo Franco will play Argyle, “a fun-loving stoner” and pizza delivery boy who becomes Jonathan’s (Charlie Heaton) new best friend.
Joseph Quinn will play Eddie Munson, a nerdy "audacious" metalhead who runs Hawkins High’s D&D club. According to Geektown, he “will find himself at the terrifying epicentre of this season’s mystery.”
Sherman Augustus will play Lt. Colonel Sullivan, an “intelligent, no-nonsense man” who is confident he has a way to chase the evil out of Hawkins for good.
Mason Dye will play Jason Carver, a popular, rich and handsome sports star at Hawkins High. His life begins to unravel as a new evil threat emerges.
Finally Nikola Djuricko will play Yuri, a “seedy and unpredictable” Russian smuggler.
While we don’t know exactly how season 4 will unfold, there’s plenty of hanging plot threads from season 3 left to explore. These include Hopper’s imprisonment and the startling revelation that the Russian’s have captured a demogorgon.
Production on Stranger Things season 4 was halted back in March due to COVID-19 but then officially resumed on 28th September.
You can stream the first three seasons of Stranger Things on Netflix now.
