By Creative Media TimesFans of the hit Netflix series is in for some surprises, as well as a few new additions to the cast.
As seen on the black and white teaser, production started on April 20 and brings back the recurring cast of “old friends” as well “a few strangers” as they come together for a new adventure.
Some of these include Cary Elwes (remember Wesley?: “You’re trying to kidnap what I’ve rightfully stolen”) as the major of the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana more concerned about his image than the people of his town. This ought to be fun.
Also new are Jake Busey who will be seen in this summer’s new “The Predator” film, and Maya Hawke as one of the new leads. She is set to play Robin, an “alternative girl” bored with her mundane job until she stumbles onto one of the town secrets.
Created by The Duffer Brothers, “Stranger Things” has been a huge hit for the streaming giant and one of Netflix’s most watched series. In 2017, the show won the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, and has been AFI’s TV Program of the Year for two consecutive years for both of its first two season.
Last December, Netflix announced that there will be a third season consisting of eight episodes. Hopefully we will get a teaser later this fall.
