How 3 New Characters Will Affect STRANGER THINGS 3

It’s been too long since we’ve checked in on the residents of Hawkins during Stranger Things 2.  But now that Stranger Things 3 is getting closer to production, a new report has shed some light on the latest characters to visit Netflix’s wildly popular homage to the ’80s. In fact, some of these characters may even hint at potential story directions for the third season. Today’s Nerdist News is turning things Upside Down as we look for answers!

Join host and Justice for Mews chairwoman, Jessica Chobot, as she runs down the trio of characters who may have pivotal roles in Stranger Things 3. That Hashtag Show revealed that the show is currently looking for performers to play Mayor Larry Kline, a “morally compromised news reporter” named Bruce, and Patricia Brown, an elderly woman who gives advice to the neighborhood children.

Mayor Kline is  “a classic, 80’s style slick politician,” and his presence in the story suggests that the townspeople may have finally noticed there have been a lot of strange things going on. If so, we believe that Kline’s role will be similar to that of the mayor in Jaws, and that he’ll do anything to keep a lid on Hawkins’ darker secrets. And what if Patricia has more than life lessons to offer to the kids? She could potentially have stories to share about the supernatural and super science events in Hawkins that go back long before Eleven and the other super-powered children escaped.

As for Bruce, the fact that he’s already described as “compromised” suggests that he’ll be playing a role in keeping the Hawkins coverup alive. Bruce could also be a rival to Murray Bauman, the ex-journalist who helped Jonathan and Nancy expose part of the conspiracy in season 2.

What do you think about the potential new characters of Stranger Things 3? Let’s turn things up to Eleven in the comment section below!
