Stranger Things Season 4 is currently in production in Atlanta, and what better time to announce the cast has gotten bigger!
The news of the new cast was announced yesterday at Netflix Geeked’s first-ever Geeked Week, a virtual fan-facing event revealing first looks and celebrating all things genre entertainment at Netflix.
Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen and Grace Van Dien join the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things in recurring roles.
Next to the established regulars, the four will be joining the eight other new cast of Robert Englund, Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko and Tom Wlaschiha.
Here’s the lowdown Netflix sent us on each of the new characters…
Amybeth McNulty (Anne with an E) will play Vickie, a cool, fast-talking band nerd who catches the eye of one of our beloved heroes.
Myles Truitt (Queen Sugar, Black Mafia Family) will play Patrick, a Hawkins basketball star who has friends, talent, and a good life…until shocking events send his life spiralling out of control.
Regina Ting Chen (Queen of the South, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier) as Ms. Kelly, a popular guidance counselor who cares deeply for her students—especially those struggling the most.
Grace Van Dien (Charlie Says, The Village) as Chrissy, Hawkins’ High lead cheerleader and the most popular girl in school. But beneath the seemingly perfect surface lies a dark secret.
The cast returning also includes Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Maya Hawke and Winona Ryder.
Stranger Things Season 4 launch date still to be announced.
