Max is supposedly a 13-year-old tomboy who likes skateboarding (don't we all, right?) while Roman's gender hasn't been disclosed, but he or she is in their 30s and is seeking revenge after a tough childhood with a drug addicted mother.

Finally there's Billy, who is 17 and the kind of person who "steals people's girlfriends" (steady on Bill) and drives a Black Camaro. And, according to THR, has a "violent and unpredictable nature that shows itself to those closest to him, especially to ones who are younger than him."

Beyond a ridiculously cryptic teaser, not much else is known about season 2, although it's been confirmed that it will be set in 1984 - a year on from the original - and will be a direct sequel to the nostalgia-drenched original.

We do however know that the tagline that accompanies the casting call reads: "When terrifying supernatural forces once again begin to affect Hawkins, they realise Will's disappearance was only the beginning."

Dramatic...
