“The Hollywood Reporter” on Tuesday reported that actors Sean Astin, Will Chase, Brett Gelman and Paul Resier are some of the new cast members on “Stranger Things.”
Netflix released the first season of “Stranger Things” in July 2016, with actor David Harbour and actress Winona Ryder leading a large ensemble cast.
The first season deals with the disappearance of 13-year-old Will Byers in Hawkins, IN during the 1980s.
A series of supernatural events emerges as the characters hunt for Byers, including the appearance of a young girl with psychic powers and a monster from an alternate dimension.
“Stranger Things” became a hit with critics, with review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes certifying it as “fresh” with a 95 percent approval rating as of Tuesday.
The show has since been praised for its homages to 1980s horror and science fiction, as well as powerful performances from its younger stars.
Actors Mike Wheeler, Gatten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and actress Millie Bobby Brown have all received praise for their portrayal of the group of children searching for Byers.
