Jake Busey has also been cast in the hit series as Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with "questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."
The new series will also introduce another teenager into the mix, with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's daughter, Maya Hawke, joining the cast as "alternative girl" Robin. She's been described as "equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life, and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins."
Menawhile, Priah Ferguson has been promoted from guest tar to recurring cast member for her role as Lucas's sassy little sister Erica.
Season 3 is expected to air in 2019, and will understandably feature a time-jump due to the lead actors and actresses rapid ageing. The team is working with teenagers, after all.
Stay tuned for more updates!
