'Stranger Things' Season 2 Updates: Veteran Stars Sean Astin And Paul Reiser Join The Original Cast; Will They Be Friends Or Foes?
Veteran stars Sean Astin and Paul Reiser have been confirmed to join the original cast of "Stranger Things" in its second season. The roles that the new stars will be playing on "Stranger Things" season 2 were already defined as well. The revelations about the character are now fuellng speculations that another protagonist and antagonist will join the crazy happenings in Hawkins.
The first season of the hit horror/thriller flick signed several newbie young stars to Hollywood but added the much popular Winona Ryder alongside Matthew Modine to kick-start the show's fame. Yet the Duffer brothers seem to have more plans in mind by adding Astin and Reiser as regular cast members of "Stranger Things" season 2.
Along with the said announcement that came early this week, reports also surfaced revealing how the new characters will contribute to the mysteries revolving in the series. Astin is said to appear as Bob Newby. His character is described as a kindhearted nerd who is now a manager at Radio Shack. It was also revealed that he was a childhood friend of Joyce and Chief Hopper, hence it is anticipated that he will side with the "good ones" in the show.
On the other hand, Reiser, who took to Twitter to share his excitement of being cast in the show, will give life to the character of Dr. Owens. The doctor is described as a high ranking official of the Department of Energy, and is tasked to cover up all the crazy events that happened in season 1. It is also speculated that he will be working hand in hand with Hopper, who was seen in the final episode of season 1 taken by people who seemed to work for the government.
Apart from the two actors, another big revelation came when Lannea Berhelsen was also confirmed to appear in "Stranger Things" season 2. The Dannish actress is said to play as Roman who is suspected to have a mysterious connection to the past supernatural events that took place at the Hawkins Lab. Her character is described as an emotionally damaged yet magnetic young woman who, in her childhood, suffered a great loss. Whether she will be on the side of the kids or the antagonists is still unclear, but her character is speculated to be connected with Eleven when "Stranger Things" returns.
Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, Sadie Sink, and Dacre Montgomery were also confirmed as season regulars. With the powerhouse cast, "Stranger Things" season 2 might just deliver the promise of the Duffer brothers of a "crazier" season 2 which will premiere in 2017.
