According to ThatHashtagShow, a “new trio of characters” will join the cast of Stranger Things for its third season.
The characters and their descriptions from the site are listed below:
- “Mayor Larry Kline:” Described as a classic, 80’s style slick politician, “Kline” is described as pathetic and driven only by his own interests. The studio is looking for a male, 40s-60s, to fill the role.
- “Bruce:” A morally compromised news reporter in his 50s, “Bruce” was described as outwardly sexist, overweight and bedraggled.
- “Patricia Brown:” “Patricia” seems to be filing the role of the sweet, neighborhood elder. The studio is looking for a woman in her 70s for the role which will see her spending a lot of time tending to her garden and offering her advice to the neighborhood kids.
The site says that these names are likely placeholders and the real names may be different in the series.
SPOILER warning for Season 2 of Stranger Things below:
Last season, we saw the introduction of several new characters: Bob Newby (superhero), Maxine “Mad Max” Mayfield, Billy Hargrove, and Dr. Sam Owens. The creators of the show, the Duffer brothers, did a fantastic job with these characters. Many fans expected Bob to turn out to be nowhere as nice as he was, but he ended up saving the day. The second season even seemed to do better on average scores than the first, and the new characters sure didn’t hurt or hinder the show.
Could the addition of these new recurring characters play out similarly to last season in adding to the show’s popularity? Let us know what you think on Twitter!
Season 3 of Stranger Things will likely hit Netflix in late 2019.
