Stranger Things Season 3 adds new cast member and expands existing character

March 5th, 2018 by Ciaran McElherron Comments

Season 3 of Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things is gathering steam.  Netflix has lined up Maya Hawke as one of the new lead characters and Priah Ferguson character has been upgraded to a recurring role.

Hawke, daughter of actors Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, will play an “alternative girl” who is bored with her run-of-the-mill day job, who is seeking some excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, Indiana.

Ferguson appeared last season in a guest role as Erica, Lucas’ strong-willed little sister. The scene-stealer returns in the next instalment with an army of her own friends. No longer content with sitting on the side-lines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous new threat.


Whatever or whoever is added, we’re still completely on board the next train to Hawkins…

Netflix has not yet announced a release date for season 3 of Stranger Things.
