New Characters Coming In ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2
One of the most beloved aspects of “Stranger Things” Season 1 was the nod to 1980’s life and times. This will continue in Season 2. While the first season was set in the winter of 1983, Season 2 will be set in the fall of 1984. There will also be three new characters for fans to sink their teeth in to. The character of Max will be played by Sadie Sink. Max is described as being “tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era. She has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her.”
Actor Dacre Montgomery will be playing Billy, Max’s older brother. He’s revealed as being a “hyper-confident and edgy older step-brother. He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma, is a violent and unpredictable nature.” Meanwhile, “Stranger Things” Season 2 will also introduce a character named Roman, a gender-neutral thirty-something who is said to have suffered “a great loss at an early age.”
