Filming on Stranger Things season two is about to get rolling and Netflix has just announced three new cast members: Linnea Berthelsen, Sean Astin, and Paul Reiser.

Berthelsen is a young, Danish newcomer who plays a character named ā€œRoman.ā€ Roman is described as ā€œan emotionally damaged, magnetic young woman who suffered a great loss as a child. Although she does not live in Hawkins, she is mysteriously connected to the supernatural events at the labā€¦ā€

Astin (above) really needs no introduction. The Goonies, Lord of the Rings, Rudy, you know him and you love him. Heā€™s playing ā€œBob Newby,ā€ ā€œa kind-hearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce and Hopper and now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack.ā€

And Reiser, the legendary comedian, and star of Aliens and Mad About You, is ā€œDr. Owens,ā€ described as ā€œa high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ā€˜clean-upā€™ assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.ā€

What you get from these descriptions is season two is going to be very, very closely related to the events of season one. Clean-up is still happening, a girl from out of town is affected, etc. Thatā€™s an exciting revelation as there are plenty of mysteries left to be uncovered.
