Stranger Things Season 2

Stranger Things Promotes 'Steve' and 'Will,' Adds Mysterious Duo in Season 2

Prepare to see a few new faces — and a lot more of some familiar ones — when Stranger Things returns for its second season.

Not only has the supernatural Netflix drama promoted Joe Keery (Steve) and Noah Schnapp (Will) to series regulars, but it’s also welcoming two newcomers: American Odyssey‘s Sadie Sink and Power RangersDacre Montgomery.

Stranger Things Season 2Sink will play Max, described as 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.”

Montgomery, meanwhile, will play Max’s “hyper-confident, edgy older step-brother. 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.”

    Still kinda bummed it’s not going the anthology route. But still super excited for season 2, interested to see where they go next.

      I for one am super glad it didn’t go anthology. They have managed to create a fascinating world to dig into and that’s not easy to do. Of course there’s always the risk of going “Lost” where they have no idea where to go with it. But from what I’ve read they’ve thought Stranger Things out pretty far already.

    No so super excited. Still no word on the iconic character of Eleven.

  3. Kate says:

    Why are they in quotations, like that’s not really their character names?

    Woohoo Stranger Things!! Can’t wait to finally get some decent tv on my screen again, everything else has been such a disappointment this year. I think it would be a great idea if 21 pilots did some songs for the soundtrack. Everytime I hear Heathens I’m like, yeah this could so be in Stranger Things!!

    Eleven was the most interesting character – and such an amazingly talented young actress. It would be a shame if they don’t bring her back as a main character!
