Netflix Announced Two Characters Joining Stranger Things

'Stranger Things': Priah Ferguson Promoted, Maya Hawke Added As New Regular In Season 3 Of Netflix Series

Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and more. Meanwhile, Ferguson has had small roles in various shows before, but Stranger Things has been her biggest project to date, and it's now set to bring her even more prominence.

Variety reports that the 11 year-old actress who plays Lucas' precocious little sister Erica Sinclair, has been promoted to a series regular.

From her updated character description, expect the 11-year-old actress - who has also appeared on FX's Atlanta - to have an expanded role and bring along some new friends on a "wild mission to save Hawkins from a unsafe and unexpected new threat".

Netflix also announced that Maya Hawke (as in, Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke's daughter) has joined the show as an "alternative girl" who is "bored with her mundane day job". No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a risky and unexpected new threat. Robin is just as sharp as she is playful and she just wants a little excitement in her life. Other notable performances include when she played the lead in the BBC and Masterpiece's adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic Novel, Little Women. The Mind Flayer still towers over Hawkins from the Upside Down, but otherwise? But otherwise, most of the storylines had been wrapped up, which is what the creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, intended.

While we met Erica last season, Robin is a brand-new character in the Stranger Things world.

"Stranger Things" Season 2 is expected to stream on Netflix sometime in 2019.
