‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Adds New Cast Members

Things are getting even stranger in Hawkins, Indiana. Netflix's "Stranger Things" is adding at least two new cast members for Season 3 — and one is already a familiar face.

Priah Ferguson, who guest starred last season as Erica Sinclair, Lucas' (Caleb McLoughlin) scene-stealing younger sister, will join the cast in a recurring role. Erica will be accompanied by "an army of her own friends," and is no longer content sitting on the sidelines. She'll find herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous new threat.

Also joining the show is Maya Thurman-Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke and star of the upcoming BBC/Masterpiece adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women." She'll play Robin, "an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful." She's bored with her day job and wants a little more excitement in her life, but gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins.

And the end of Season 2, the Mind Flayer shadow monster was looming over the Upside Down. But otherwise, most of the storylines had been wrapped up, which is what the creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, intended.

"Last year, we had a lot of little cliffhangers at the end of the season," Matt told The Hollywood Reporter.

"We didn't want to do that again. We didn't want to box ourselves in for season three. We wanted to be able to start season three on a very clean slate."

"Stranger Things" Season 2 is expected to stream on Netflix sometime in 2019.
