Eight new actors have joined the season four cast of one of Netflix’s biggest series, “Stranger Things” including horror icon and star of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Robert Englund!
Variety is reporting that Englund has joined along with Jamie Campbell (Sweeny Todd), Eduardo Franco (Booksmart), Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great), Tom Wlaschiha (“Game of Thrones”), Sherman Augustus (“Into the Badlands”), Nikola Djuricko (Genius), and Mason Dye (“Bosch”).
Englund is set to play Victor Creel, a “disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
Quinn will play Eddie Munson, an 80’s metalhead who runs Hawkins High’s D&D club. And Franco joins as Argyle, Jonathan’s new best friend.
Production on the fourth season has been delayed thanks to the pandemic, but resumed filming last month.
Plot details are still being kept under wraps but we do know, thanks to the teaser trailer, that David Harbour’s character is still alive and is being held as a prisoner in the Soviet Union.
In the season three finale, it appeared that David Harbour‘s Jim Hopper had sacrificed himself. Thankfully the season four teaser has revealed that our favorite father figure survived and now finds himself imprisoned in Russia while back in the U.S., “a new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything.”
“Stranger Things” was created by The Duffer Brothers.
