This summers hit ‘Stranger Things’ is about to start shooting season 2 and they are making some changes and additions to the cast before shooting gets underway. Last season two characters who re recurring have been upped to series regulars which means we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in season 2.
Joe Kerry (Steve Harrington) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) have been promoted from recurring to series regulars. Also the show has added two new characters. Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery have added series regulars for season two.
Sink will play Max, 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 will play Billy, Max’s hyper-confident and 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.
“There’s definitely a handful of really compelling new characters this season, but absolutely servicing the core group first and foremost,” exec producer Shawn Levy told THR. “Like the show itself, it’s multigenerational new characters and really, really intriguing ones.”
If you have somehow missed this show then you really need to get on Netflix and check it out.
