'Stranger Things' season 2 cast news: Original cast members to return; two new faces to come aboard

(Facebook/StrangerThingsTV)Netflix's "Stranger Things" is confirmed for a second season.

It'll be a long while till followers of the Duffer brothers' science fiction mystery series "Stranger Things" get a taste of the second season of the ode-to-all-things-80s, however, it seems like word about the new season continues to spread as the production reports the return of some of the first season's cast members and the appearance of a bunch of new characters as well.

According to a report by Pop Sugar, though the return of Millie Bobby Brown's psychokinetic "Stranger Things" character Eleven remains unclear, fans can be sure that a few other old characters are going to return to the second season of the series along with a bunch of new faces as well.

Of course, there's Winona Ryder who plays the part of Joyce Byers, Noah Schnapp who plays the part of her youngest son, Will, there's Finn Wolfhard who takes the part of Mike Wheeler, Caleb McLaughlin who acts as Lucas Sinclair on the series, Gaten Matarazzo who plays the part of the loveable toothless Dustin Henderson, Joe Kerry as the reformed bad-boy Steve Harrington, Natalie Dyer who plays the part of Mike's older sister Nancy, Charlie Heaton as Will's older brother, Jonathan and of course, David Harbour, the man who plays the part of Sheriff Hopper.

The new "Stranger Things" cast members include Sadie Sink, a young actress who plays the part of Max. TV Line reports that series creators Ross and Matt Duffer describe Max as a "tough and confident" 12 to 14 year old tomboyish girl.

While Mike and his crew go around the city using bicycles, Max, on the other hand, travels using a skateboard and based on a season 2 renewal news video of the series, it seems like Max may be introduced in the premiere episode titled "MadMax."

Another new actor to join the series is Dacre Montgomery. Montgomery will be playing the part of Billy, Max's violent and unpredictable older brother.

"Stranger Things" season 2 is expected for release sometime in 2017.
