On July 15, Netflix released another original series entitled “Stranger Things,” which instantly became a public favourite. The show’s cast have kept the series in headlines with their adorable quirks and genuine friendship, so there is definite anticipation about which actors and characters will enter this upcoming season.

Two new actors are bringing youth and experience with them as they join the “Stranger Things” season 2 set. Dacre Montgomery, 21, will soon become a household name as he stars as the Red Ranger, Jason, in the upcoming "Power Rangers" film. Meanwhile, 14-year-old Sadie Sink had roles in “American Odyssey,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Blue Bloods.”

Montgomery will portray the role of Billy, an overconfident bad boy. As much as he is unafraid of his peers, he is also dangerously aggressive and unpredictable.

Sink, on the other hand, will portray Billy’s suspicious stepsister, Max. She sports a tough exterior, but her boyish interests and behaviour only mask a complicated past.

At this point, there has been no official announcement on the premiere date of “Stranger Things” season 2. But fans of the show can generally expect a release sometime in July. The teaser for the upcoming season confirms and names the 9 episodes.

Only the first episode, “MadMax,” does not begin with “The,” which in the universe of “Stranger Things” signifies a very pivotal episode. In season 1, this was episode 3, entitled “Holly Jolly,” which was where things arguably picked up.

In an interview with Entertaiment Weekly, co-creator Matt Duffer confirmed that parts of the upcoming season will not be set in the little town of Hawkins. “We will venture a little bit outside of Hawkins,” he said. “I will say the opening scene [of the premiere] does not take place in Hawkins.”

“Stranger Things” was officially picked up for a second season on Aug. 31, just a month and a half from its release date. It stars Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaugnlin (Lucas) and Noah Shnapp (Will).
