There are going to be even more new faces on Season 2 of the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Astin, Paul Reiser and Danish star Linnea Berthelsen will be joining the cast. This is how THR described their characters:

–Astin will play Bob Newby, a kind-hearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack.

–Reiser will play Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a “clean-up” assignment who is tasked with containing the events of last year.

–Berthelsen is set as Roman, an emotionally damaged, magnetic young woman who suffered a great loss as a child. Although she does not live in Hawkins, she is mysteriously connected to the supernatural events at the lab.

As we previously reported, newcomers Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery will also join the cast, and of course, the most of the regulars will be returning, including breakout stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin.

“There’s definitely a handful of really compelling new characters this season, but absolutely servicing the core group first and foremost,” executive producer Shawn Levy told THR. “Like the show itself, it’s multi-generational new characters and really, really intriguing ones.”

We can’t wait! Stranger Things Season 2 is set to premiere in 2017.
