STRANGER THINGS 3 Will Feature A Lot More Erica, Lucas’ Sister

Read on with caution if you haven’t watched Stranger Things 2 yet! Mild spoilers ahead! 

Stranger Things 2 was an amazing follow-up to a crazy-successful first season. The universe expanded, characters developed in exciting and often endearing ways (looking at you, Steve Harrington), and we got to meet several new friends along the way. One of those new faces was of Lucas’ younger sister, Erica (Priah Ferguson).

And she was arguably the best new addition to Hawkins, Indiana.

While Erica didn’t get to accompany Lucas and the rest of the party on their adventure to stop the Mind Flayer, close the gate, and save Will, she made a lasting impression on the fans and the Duffer Brothers. As Yahoo! reports, the Duffers quickly fell in love with Erica as they filmed Stranger Things 2.

And while it was too late to really integrate Erica more into the story, Ross Duffer confirmed we’ll definitely see more of her in Stranger Things 3. He went on to explain that incorporating her more in the coming season was one of the first things discussed in the writer’s room. Matt Duffer also commented on how gif-able her performance was—something we absolutely agree with.

Though we’re stoked for more Erica and another fantastic performance from Ferguson, this is isn’t the first time the Duffers have been pleasantly surprised by one of their actors. For instance, everyone’s favorite bad boy turned babysitter extraordinaire, Steve Harrington, was originally supposed to die way back in the show’s first season. However, Joe Keery’s amazing performance kept him on the show and gave us delightful character development we saw in Stranger Things 2.

We’re glad that the Duffers are quick to recognize the talent in their actors, and give them more screen time. We can’t wait to see what adventures Erica gets into in Stranger Things 3! Let us know how you’d like to see Erica’s role evolve next season in the comments!
