Stranger Things Adds Harry Potter Star And More For Season 4

Stranger Things has unveiled a new bunch of actors who are going to enter the fourth season of the Netflix hit. It includes Harry Potter actor, Jamie Campbell Bower along with other actors.

The actor played the younger version of Gellert Grindelwald in both Harry Potter as well as the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The show is also welcoming Game of Thrones alum, Tom Wlaschiha who played Jaqen H’ghar. Freddy Krueger and Robert Englund who were a part of A Nightmare on Elm Street are also entering the hit series.

Jamie will be playing a regular in Stranger Things season 4. He will portray the character of Peter Ballard who is described as a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital.

Remember who Jonathan from Stranger Things is? He also has a best friend, Argyle who will be portrayed by Eduardo Franco. His character is said to be a “fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza”.

Catherine The Great alum, Joseph Quinn has also been roped in to play Eddie Munson. His character is described as a metalhead who runs the Hellfire Club and is reportedly at the heart of season four’s mystery. As for Tom, his character will be returning for season 4.

He stars as Dmitri who plays a Russian prison guard who befriends, (Spoiler Alert!) Hopper. The beloved cop is played by none other than everybody’s favorite, David Harbour. Robert plays Victor Creel who is described as a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a murder done in the 1950s.

“We know what the end is, and we know when it is”

Westworld star, Sherman Augustus will also be joining the amazing cast as Lt. Colonel Sullivan. His character is described as a “no-nonsense” man who believes he can stop the evil in Hawkins. Other addition to the cast includes The Goldbergs alum, Mason Dye who will play the character of Jason Carver.

His character is described as a “handsome, popular guy at school world”. He begins to figure out the new evil in Hawkins. Genius star, Nikola Djuricko has also been roped in to play the character of Yuri, who is a seedy, unpredictable Russian smuggler.

The news comes after some of the show’s cast members recently posted teasers on social media from season four filming, including a nod to the Hellfire Club.

Creators of the hit Netflix series, Ross and Matt Duffer, have given us an update on when the show might end. Stranger Things is going to stay with us for a while. While the creator has previously said that they might say goodbye to the series after its fourth season, but they have confirmed otherwise. They revealed that season four will not be the end of the Netflix drama.

Ross Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter that season 4 will not be the end of Stranger Things. He continued, “We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.” 

David Harbour On Hopper’s Story

We have even more good news other than the show being with us for a while, it has been reported that the script for season four is ready. Matt confirmed saying for the first time they have all the scripts written and they are able to look at it and make necessary adjustments.

However, they have yet to start filming for season four. The cast had barely begun when they had to stop because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Their production in Atlanta is said to be scheduled for September and there is still no update on the release date yet. Which means that we will have to wait a little longer than anticipated for the fourth installment to release.

The third installment of Stranger Things was released last year on the Fourth of July. Most of the action centered around a gigantic, incredibly ’80s mall and ended with many changes. Chief Hopper (David Harbour) was presumed dead in an explosion, so Joyce (Winona Ryder) moved her family and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) out of Hawkins. 

After the release of the trailer of season four, we know that Hopper is still alive. He is in Russia as a prisoner but that is all we know about the series. We also have a little information from what the cast has said.

David Harbour revealed, “Hopper is the American in that Russian prison, and to me, what happens in this season—first of all, it’s very epic and very big in a Stranger Things way”. He assured that there are still monsters, horrors, and scares. The actor added that there is an ‘Indian Jones-type action. David revealed that the series will also have Hopper’s really deep back story that they’ve hinted in season two.

The actor also said, “I’m really excited to let people see these really deep colors in him. Each season we see a different side of him, and last season he was sort of wacky…Now I think he’s painted in a bit of a darker palette and he’s able to express some of these really deep things in him, which we haven’t really known yet. It’s been hinted at, but we don’t really know.”
