Stranger Things 3 will add three new major characters
Reports claim three new significant characters will be introduced in Stranger Things 3.
According to That Hashtag Show, the third season of the popular Netflix series will see some exciting new additions to the cast.
The new characters are said to include Larry Kline, – the Mayor of Hawkins and a “classic, 80s-style slick politician” who is “pathetic and driven only by his own interests” – and Bruce – a “sexist” and “morally compromised news reporter in his 50s”.
A character named Patricia Brown is also reported to be involved in upcoming plot lines – a “sweet neighbourhood elder” who spends her time gardening and offering advice to the children in her neighbourhood.
Creators Ross and Matt Duffer previously revealed details about Stranger Things 3, confessing the new series will be “something almost weirdly more intimate” and “a lot of fun”.
Talking to IndieWire, Ross said: “I love the early days of seasons, because you are filled with all of these possibilities. We are having a lot of fun just bouncing around cool ideas.”
Matt continued: “It’s not necessarily going to be bigger in scale. What I am really excited about is giving these characters an interesting journey to go on.”
The creators also revealed the season two character, Erica, will feature a lot more in the next instalment of the series.
“There will definitely be more Erica in season three,” Ross confirmed. “We were able to integrate more of her [in season two], but not as much as you want because the story [was] already going. ‘We got to use more Erica’ – that was one of the first things we said in the writers’ room.”
Stranger Things 3 is thought to land on Netflix in 2019.
