Announced as part of Netflix‘s “Geeked Week” today, Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen, and Grace Van Dien join the fourth season of “Stranger Things” in recurring roles.
Here’s everything you need to know about 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 spiraling 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.
You’ll find a special “Geeked Week” message from the Duffer Brothers down below.
Production on Season 4 is still underway, and we may have to wait until next year for the season to premiere on Netflix. In the meantime, expect more teasers in the coming months.
What we know of Season 4 thus far is that Hopper is still alive, “imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other.”
“Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….”
“Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more,” the Duffer Brothers had said back in February of last year.
The season’s cast includes Robert Englund, who will play Victor Creel, a disturbed man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
