A new report has revealed the character descriptions for some of the new faces we’ll be seeing in Stranger Things, when it returns to Netflix in 2019.
The production team is gearing up to begin filming Stranger Things 3 this spring, and while last season overwhelmed us with a whole bunch of newcomers, it seems that the upcoming third instalment is only looking to add three recurring guest roles, for now.
That Hashtag Show is reporting that a new trio will soon be added to the cast – and they also managed to sneak a couple of details about the characters, although the names aren’t likely to be the ones used in the series:
“’Mayor Larry Kline.’ Described as a classic, 80’s style slick politician, ‘Kline’ is described as pathetic and driven only by his own interests. The studio is looking for a male, 40s-60s, to fill the role.
‘Bruce.’ A morally compromised news reporter in his 50s, ‘Bruce’ was described as outwardly sexist, overweight and bedraggled.
‘Patricia Brown.’ ‘Patricia’ seems to be filing the role of the sweet, neighborhood elder. The studio is looking for a woman in her 70s for the role which will see her spending a lot of time tending to her garden and offering her advice to the neighborhood kids. Given the Duffer brothers affinity for subverting expectations, we find ourselves wondering if this sweet old lady might have some connection to the Upside Down; then again, that might be just the type of thing they want us to think we know and she just ends up a sweet old lady.”
It’s likely that these characters will share the same kind of impact that Season 2’s newcomers did, so there’s probably more to the trio than their descriptions imply – and any one of them could be the season’s antagonist.
