Details On Three New Characters Coming To STRANGER THINGS Season 3
It's expected that with each new season of Stranger Things there are going to be new characters introduced. Some great new characters were introduced in Season 2 and thanks to That Hashtag Show, we've learned some details on three new characters that will be coming to Season 3.
Several of the characters we've come to love and despise will be returning to the show next season, and they will be joined by the following three recurring characters:
"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. Given the Duffer brothers affinity for subverting expectations, we find ourselves wondering if this sweet old lady might have some connection to the Upside Down; then again, that might be just the type of thing they want us to think we know and she just ends up a sweet old lady!
According to the report, the names you see here might be placeholder names, and they may change by the time the show airs. I'm sure this is only a few of the new characters that will be introduced in Season 3, and it will be interesting to see how their story arcs play through the course of the season.
The incredibly awesome 80s supernatural horror series is getting ready to start production again this fall. It's expected to shoot in Atlanta from mid-April through early October. Season 3 will consist of eight episodes and the story will continue the adventures of the group of teens from Hawkins, Indiana and their battle with the Upside Down.
Stranger Things Season 3 is expected to debut on Netflix in 2019.
