Can you believe it's been almost 4.5 years since Stranger Things first entered our lives? Time flies. Today Netflix revealed their cast additions to this season to stir the pot even further. The line up for Season 4 will include - Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen, and Grace Van Dien.

What does this mean for the storyline? Here's the breakdown:

  • Amybeth will play "Vickie" - a potential love interest of one of our favorite characters and band nerd. You know Amybeth from Netflix's Anne with an E - and she most recently appeared in the indie feature - Black Medicine.

  • Grace plays Chrissy - a popular cheerleader with a brewing secret. Grace Van Dien is a season regular on NBC's The Village and Netflix's Umbrella Academy.

  • Myles is cast as Patrick - a popular basketball player with a twisted personal life. Myles Truitt is best known in his Starz/Lionsgate role on Black Maficia Family, and OWN's Queen Sugar.

  • Regina will portray a loving guidance counselor at school. Chen is best known from Queen of the South and Dynasty.


So what else do we know about season 4? The first trailer dropped hints of Hopper's return (who we thought may have been dead) and the second trailer showed Dr. Martin Brenner making a cameo appearance. Here are the two trailers:

The series is created by Matt & Ross Duffer (writers, directors, and EP's), and produced by Monkey Massacre and 21 Laps Entertainment.
