We might have to wait quite some time until we get to see the latest series of Stranger Things, but season four looks set to be the most dramatic yet of the sci-fi drama.
Netflix has now announced the show, which serves as a love letter to 1980's America, will welcome a new set of faces joining Eleven and co. for more madness and mystery.
Jamie Campbell Bower, who you may recognise from Twilight, will play newcomer Peter Ballard - a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, is now the time for to Peter finally take a stand?
Elsewhere, Booksmart star Eduardo Franco will play Jonathan's new best friend Argyle; a fun-loving stoner and pizza delivery boy.
Catherine the Great's Joseph Quinn will take centre stage as Eddie Munson, an audacious 80's metalhead who runs Hawkin High's Dungeons and Dragon's club who finds himself at the heart of this season's mystery.
Also new this season is Westworld's Sherman Augustus, as the Lt. Colonel Sullivan. An intelligent, no-nonsense man, Sullivan believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all....
Mason Dye (The Goldbergs) will play Jason Carver. Jason seemingly has it all -- he's handsome, he's rich, he's a sports star, and he's dating the most popular girl in school. But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason's perfect world begins to unravel...
Nikola Djuricko stars Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.
Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) will play Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones) will play Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper. Dmitri is smart, cunning, and charming... but can he be trusted?
Stranger Things writers have since said the new series will be "better than ever" after filming was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking with Collider, producer Shawn Levy said that the pandemic had allowed writers and creators Matt and Ross Duffer to rewrite elements of the script and finesse the screenplay ahead of filming.
"I'll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD," he said.
"But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before, so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever".
