It’s already been a month since Netflix announced that a fourth season of Stranger Things was confirmed. And while we still have have a long wait before new episodes drop, TVLine has learned about some new Stranger Things Season 4 characters you can expect.
According to the site, “the Duffer Brothers are looking to cast four new male recurring roles, three of which are teenagers and one of which is an adult. The adolescent trio range from a metalhead to an entitled jock to a character that sounds an awful lot like the twin of Fast Times at Ridgemont High stoner Jeff Spicoli. The older guy, meanwhile, possesses characteristics that suggest that he will figure prominently in a certain storyline set far, far away from Hawkins.”
The fourth season, which won’t start production for several months, is expected to consist of eight episodes, which would be on par with the episode counts for Seasons 1 and 3. Season 2 consisted of nine episodes.
When the Season 4 announcement was made, the streaming service also said they had signed series creators and showrunners The Duffer Brothers to a multi-year film and series overall deal.
Stranger Things is a Netflix Original Series created by The Duffer Brothers and produced by Monkey Massacre Productions & 21 Laps Entertainment. The Duffer Brothers serve as executive producers on the series alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment and Iain Paterson.
