Stranger Things has taken the world by storm since it debuted on Netflix this summer, and its younger cast members have become overnight sensations.
Now, the iconic Hawkins, Indiana clique just got a little bit bigger.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery have been added to the cast for season 2 as step siblings with a sketchy past.
Sink will play Max, “a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era. She has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her.”
Meanwhile, Montgomery will play her stepbrother Billy, who is described as “hyper-confident” and “edgy.”
“He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma, is a violent and unpredictable nature,” THR writes.
Along with the newcomers, the report also states that Joe Kerry (Steve Harrington) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) have been moved up to series regulars for the next season.
However, one key character named Roman is still yet to be cast, though little is known of the character, as they are simply described as “as a male or a female of any ethnicity between the ages of 30 and 38.”
Still, don’t expect the newcomers to overshadow the characters we’ve already come to know and love.
“There’s definitely a handful of really compelling new characters this season, but absolutely servicing the core group first and foremost,” executive producer Shawn Levy previously told THR. “Like the show itself, it’s multigenerational new characters and really, really intriguing ones.”
Stranger Things returns to Netflix in 2017.
