Production is set to begin this April on the third season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things,“which likely won’t be arriving until 2019. We know that the season will be eight episodes long, one less than Season 2, and that all of our favorite characters will be back.
We can also expect a handful of new faces, and Variety reports today that Maya Thurman-Hawke, the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, has signed on.
The site reports, “Thurman-Hawke will play an “alternative girl” bored with her mundane day job. She seeks excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, Indiana.”
Additionally, Season 2 actress Priah Ferguson, who played Lucas’ scene-stealing sister Erica, has been upped to a series regular. She’ll return “with an army of her own friends. No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous new threat.”
