The hit Netflix series Stranger Things is aiming to get stranger still–with several interesting characters being introduced in the fourth season.
No debut date has yet been set for Season 4 of the popular show, but production is well underway and casting continues at a feverish pace, as reported by Deadline.
Check out the tweet on this page from series creators Matt and Ross Duffer to meet one of the new cast members, Amybeth McNulty (Anne with an E), who will play Vickie, a “cool, fast-taking band nerd” who catches the eye of one of the show’s heroes.

In addition, Myles Truitt (Queen Sugar) 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) portrays Ms. Kelly, a popular guidance counselor, and Grace Van Dien (Charlie Says) plays Chrissy, the head cheerleader whose “seemingly perfect” life hides a “dark secret.”
Not much is yet known about the main storyline for Season 4, but a couple of hints have teased the return of Hopper (David Harbour), who had been feared dead, and the possible return of Dr. Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine). The upcoming season appears to be set at the Hawkins National Laboratory run by Brenner, where he had performed experiments on children with psychokinetic abilities–including Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
Stranger Things–led by the Duffer Brothers and executive producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and Iain Paterson–follows the residents of Hawkins, Ind. as they deal with the supernatural threat posed by the alternate dimension known as The Upside Down.
