What does the casting of new characters in Stranger Things Season 4 mean?
Stranger Things is a show already crowded with dozens of different characters. It isn’t a show that revolves around 3 or 4 characters, there are characters from different age group, different nations, and also different worlds. The characters and their equations are what makes the show interesting. But lately, some sources had reported that Netflix is casting plenty of new actors for the new season of the show.
Now, as we know from Stranger Things 3 that the show is moving out from the small town of Hawkins to the wider world, having few new characters might make sense. But we also know that nothing is normal in Stranger Things, and that’s why we are wondering what Duffer Brothers are actually planning with the new characters in Stranger Things Season 4.
Netflix is casting for which of the new characters in Stranger Things Season 4?
There are plenty of new and interesting characters Netflix is casting for Stranger Things Season 4. They all possess very varied characteristics and are widely divided into two age groups.
Teenagers between 15 to 20
- Fred – Male – Four-eyed dorky kid, obsessed with journalism, off-putting to others sometimes.
- Chrissy – Female – Emotionally layered character, carrying the pain of her past from her mother’s abuse, uber-popular and centre of attraction.
- Angela – Female – A bully yet an extremely popular girl.
- Jake – Male – A probable member of the high-school basketball team.
- Vickie – Female – Stylish and unapproachable girl with immense attitude from outside, goofy and soft-hearted from within.
- Eddie – Male – A scary-looking nerdy teenager, obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons.
- Jason – Male – A handsome looking teenager, rich.
- Argyle – Male – A probable stoner, chill nature.
Elders around the age of 50
- Dimitri – Male – A Russian speaker, a probable guard or prisoner in Russia.
- Warden Hatch – Male – Head of a Psychiatric hospital, smug and pretentious.
- Ms Kelley – Female – A kind-hearted woman, high-school counsellor.
- Lieutenant Colonel Sullivan – Male – An intelligent and dedicated military officer, strict, intimidating.
Some of these characters are Russian as well, which is obvious as per the fact that the show is dealing with Russians now.
Are these new characters in Stranger Things Season 4 going to be the fighters for Mind Flayer?
The fact that Mind Flayer couldn’t do much damage with sole hosts in previous seasons might just mean that he could return with a greater number of fighters this time. Though not all the new characters in Stranger Things Season 4 could be its hosts, we could totally think a couple of them to be fighting on his side.
There are a few characters whose characteristics brings suspicion about their choice of sides. Emotionally vulnerable, or Evil loving characters like Chrissy, Angela and Warden Hatch could prove to be easy bait for Mind Flayer.
New Characters in Stranger Things Season 4 that could fight with Eleven and kids
Other than a few characters that seem an easy bait for Mind Flayer, there are plenty of characters that could fight alongside the Heroes of Hawkins. Characters like Fred, Jake and Eddie seems to be the kind of characters who’ll choose to go on an adventures journey and fight with heroes.
Eddie seems to be just the kind of Dungeons obsessed teenager who’ll fit with the group of Mike. While Fred, with his love for Journalism, seems to be joining Nancy and Jonathan to seek some extra troubles. One of the Russian characters might just prove to be the one helping hand for Hopper in hoping out of Russian prison.
Do you have a better idea of where these new characters in Stranger Things Season 4 will fit in? Will they make Hopper and Eleven feel insecure? Guess the fate for a few and do let us know in the comments below.
