The fan favourites will be joined by a number of new cast members, some of whom viewers may recognise from other popular shows.

Jamie Campbell Bower has appeared in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Sweeney Todd and joins as a series regular.

He will play Peter Ballard, a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, will Peter finally take a stand?

Meanwhile Eduardo Franco has starred in Booksmart and The Binge and will play Argyle, Jonathan’s new best friend.

Argyle is a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.

Howards End and Catherine the Great actor Joseph Quinn is the third new regular to join the show as Eddie Munson.

Eddie is an audacious 80’s metalhead who runs The Hellfire Club, Hawkins High’s official D&D club.

Hated by those who don’t understand him — and beloved by those who do — Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.

As well as the trio of new regulars, there will be a wealth of new recurring characters in season four too.

Sherman Augustus (who has appeared in Into the Badlands and Westworld) will play Lt. Colonel Sullivan. An intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all….

Mason Dye (Bosch, The Goldbergs) will play Jason Carver. Jason seemingly has it all — he’s handsome, he’s rich, he’s a sports star, and he’s dating the most popular girl in school.

But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason’s perfect world begins to unravel…

Season four will see action take place in Russia as well as Hawkins as Jim Hopper is held in a prison there following the explosion at the end of series three.

Nikola Djuricko (Genius, In The Land of Blood and Honey) will play Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.

Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones, Jack Ryan) will play Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper. Dmitri is smart, cunning, and charming… but can he be trusted?

And Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise, ‘V’ Television Series) will play Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are available on Netflix now.
