Two new cast members have been added to the show.
Netflix has announced the addition of two cast members to the upcoming second season of 'Stranger Things.' Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery will both be series regulars when the show returns in 2017.
According to the press release:
Sadie Sink has been cast in the role of 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.
Dacre Montgomery has been cast in the role of 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.
In addition to the new cast members, Netflix has also confirmed that Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington, and Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, have both been promoted from recurring to series regulars for season two. Plot details have not been announced yet, but the show will pick up in the fall of 1984. Season two of 'Strangers Things' will premiere in 2017 and is set to include nine episodes. Meanwhile, all eight season one episodes are now available for streaming globally through Netflix.
Other upcoming Netflix premieres include 'Black Mirror' on October 21, 'The Crown' on November 4, 'Lovesick' on November 17, 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life' on November 25, and 'Iron Fist' on March 17.
A current Netflix subscription starts at $10 for HD streaming and $12 for Ultra HD streaming.
