Stranger Things Season 4 Adds New Cast Including Robert Englund

The Battle Of Starcourt has left a few unanswered questions at the end of Stranger Things Season 3. We wait patiently to see how Hopper (David Harbour) end up in a Gulag as seen the in the Season 4 Teaser Trailer.

When the premiere of the long waited season 4  your guess is good as mines. Netflix have made sure we haven’t forgotten about the series and today they have unveiled massive casting news.

They have announced 8 new actors are joining the cast for the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things. The most notable is none other than Horror alum and Freddy Krueger himself Robert Englund! He’s joined by Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko and Tom Wlaschiha.

We also learned what characters they to play and if they are recurring or regular characters. Here’s the details –

REGULARS

Eduardo Franco (Booksmart, The Binge) will play Argyle, Jonathan’s new best friend, a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.

Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great, Howards End) will play Eddie Munson, an audacious 80’s metalhead who runs The Hellfire Club, Hawkins High’s official D&D club. Hated by those who don’t understand him — and beloved by those who do — Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.

RECURRING
Sherman Augustus (Into the Badlands, Westworld) will play Lt. Colonel Sullivan. An intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all….

Mason Dye (Bosch, The Goldbergs) will play Jason Carver. Jason seemingly has it all — he’s handsome, he’s rich, he’s a sports star, and he’s dating the most popular girl in school. But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason’s perfect world begins to unravel…

Nikola Djuricko (Genius, In The Land of Blood and Honey) will play Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.

Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise, ‘V’ Television Series) will play Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.

Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones, Jack Ryan) will play Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper. Dmitri is smart, cunning, and charming… but can he be trusted?

It seems production on the series has restarted, so we can expect Stranger Things Season 4 sometime in 2021 or 2022?
