Now that season two of Stranger Things is a go, the news is flying around like a bad guy who tried to attack Eleven. First was the episode titles, next were the hints of what’s new and now, we’ve got descriptions of three new characters.

TV Line has the scoop on three of the four major new characters coming to Stranger Things in season 2. The producers have stated no casting has begun yet but three lucky actors are going to play these characters come 2017.


First is the most exciting one: Max, “a ‘tough and confident’ 12-14 year-old female whose ‘appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era.’ Max eschews Hawkins’ primary mode of transportation — the bicycle — for a skateboard, which she uses to get around everywhere.”

That’s awesome. Plus, the site points out, the first episode of season two is called “MadMax,” likely a reference to this new character.


Next is Max’s brother, Billy, a “very muscular and hyper-confident” boy who drives a Camaro. And third is Roman, “a gender-neutral 30-something who “suffered a great loss at an early age and has been seeking revenge ever since.”

An adult seeking revenge, a badass new chick, her jock older brother—you can totally feel the pieces falling into place.
