Stranger Things” is coming back soon and its second season is finally taking shape, including the addition of two new cast members as season regulars. On top of this, two existing stars are officially staying.

The Duff Brothers have announced the addition of Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery to the already impressive "Stranger Things" cast, in the form of a step-brother and sister duo named Billy and Max. Sadie will play the role of a tough girl with a complicated history, who tends to act more like a boy and to be suspicious of others, while Dacre plays her step-brother, a young lady-killer who steals away everyone’s girlfriends, drives around in a black Camaro and is generally good at drinking games. However, despite his popularity with the girls, he reportedly hides an unpredictable and violent character.
