Season 2 Of 'Stranger Things' Will Feature Three Brand New Characters

​Spoiler alert and all that

If, like everyone at Esquire, Great Britain and the Netflix-streaming world, you've devoured the first season of Stranger Thingsyou'll be pleased to know that plans are afoot to add some brand new cast members to the upcoming sequel.

According to a detailed casting call released by The Hollywood Reporter, producers are looking to add two characters who will join the main cast next season called Max and Roman.

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...
