Block off your plans for July 2017; Stranger Things is returning for a second season. Stranger Things 2 details are scanty, but we’ve already seen some teaser trailers, seen episode titles, and been given details of the new characters joining for season two. The Duffer Brothers have told EW that four new characters will be coming to Hawkins, Indiana in 2017. But who are they? Last week, Variety announced two of the new actors; Sadie Sink (Max) and Dacre Montgomery (Billy). So let’s take a closer look at two of stars joining one of the most crazy popular Netflix shows in the streaming service’s history.
Who is she?
Sadie Sink is a 14-year-old actress from the US. Her career started in 2012 when she played Annie on Broadway. She recently played the young Queen Elizabeth alongside Helen Mirren in the broadway show The Audience. She has also starred in another Netflix show – Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (‘Kimmy Sees a Sunset!’).
