If, like everyone at Esquire and around the world, you've devoured the first season of Stranger Things, you'll be pleased to know that plans are afoot to add some brand new cast members to the upcoming sophomore season.
According to a detailed casting call released by The Hollywood Reporter, producers are looking to add three characters, Max, Roman and Billy.
Max is supposedly a 13-year-old tomboy who likes skateboarding. While Roman's gender hasn't been disclosed, he or she is in their 30s and is seeking revenge after a tough childhood with a drug addicted mother.
Finally there's Billy, who is 17 and the kind of person who "steals people's girlfriends" and drives a Black Camaro. And, according to THR, has a "violent and unpredictable nature that shows itself to those closest to him, especially to ones who are younger than him."

Beyond a ridiculously cryptic teaser, not much else is known about season 2, although it's been confirmed that it will be set in 1984—a year on from the original—and will be a direct sequel to the nostalgia-drenched original.
We do however know that the tagline that accompanies the casting call reads: "When terrifying supernatural forces once again begin to affect Hawkins, they realise Will's disappearance was only the beginning."
