As previously reported, the new season will see the addition of three new characters. Linnea Berthelsen has been cast as Roman, which Netflix has described as "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…"
Meanwhile, Sean Astin (The Goonies, Lord of the Rings Trilogy) will take on a role as Bob Newby, "a kindhearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack."
Finally, rounding out the new cast members will be Paul Reiser (Whiplash) who's been cast as Dr. Owens, “a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ‘clean-up’ assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.”
Stranger Things 2 is set to debut on Netflix in 2017.
