Who will be gobbled by the Demogorgon first?

We don't know if you've noticed but we're pretty big fans of Stranger Things at PopBuzz, so literally ANY news about the second series is enough to make us scream. 

Last month the creators of the show, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, announced two new characters Max (below), and her older brother Billy.


Max, played by Sadie Sink, who has previously guested in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, is described as "a tomboy with a complicated history and a suspicious streak". And Billy, played by Australian actor Dacre Montgomery, is said to be "a classic girlfriend-stealing bad boy". 

Well, according to Business Insider, three more characters have just been announced.

Sean Astin (who has previously starred in the "Goonies", which is a reference point in "Stranger Things") will play Bob Newby, a former nerd who went to high school with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour). He now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack. Saddle me up with those 80s pop hits why don't ya, Bob?

And we also have a new villain. Paul Reiser will play Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy. He's tasked with containing the events of last year. Hid your kids, hide your wife because shit is about to go down.

Lastly, there is Linnea Berthelsen who will play Roman, a young woman who suffered a big loss as a kid. Though Roman doesn't live in Hawkins, she's somehow connected to the events that occurred at the Department of Energy lab during the first season. Could she be Ten? Or Nine? IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES PEOPLE!

Well this has left us shook. What are your theories, folks? Let us know in the comments.
