Only yesterday we got the teaser for season 2 of Stranger Things (here) and today we have a few new characters to look forward to getting to know in 2017.

The second season will have nine episodes and it seems that Matt and Ross Duffer – the Duffer brothers – have three new major characters set to join the hit show:

Firstly, Max is a “tough and confident” 12-14 year-old female whose “appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era.” Max eschews Hawkins’ primary mode of transportation — the bicycle — for a skateboard, which she uses to get around everywhere.

As a side note, the first episode will be called Mad Max… and we doubt that’s a co-incidence. We know it’ll be set about a year after the first season finale and if you’re curious why, then read here.

Secondly, Max will have an older brother called Billy, a “very muscular and hyper-confident” Camaro-driver.

And finally, there’s thirty-something gender-neutral role of Roman. The latter character suffered a great loss at an early age and has been seeking revenge ever since.

Will this loss tie into the Upside Down? We’d say it’s certainly possible.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
