Stranger Thingsseason three will not only bring us another time-jump, more of Eleven鈥檚 siblings, and another face-off with the shadow monster, but it will also bring us these three new characters.

While we previously said goodbye to Barb (Shannon Purser) in season one and Bob (Sean Astin) in season two, we hope the three new characters that we鈥檒l get to know in the show鈥檚 third season won鈥檛 be seeing such a dire fate (although we don鈥檛 have high hopes for any of them, TBH).

According to That Hastings Show, Bruce is a 鈥渕orally compromised鈥 reporter in his 50s who is sexist as all get-out. While he doesn鈥檛 seem like a person we鈥檇 like to know in person, it鈥檚 certainly interesting to note that a reporter will be snooping around town. Will Bruce be investigating the mysterious lab鈥 or maybe even Eleven? We鈥檒l just have to wait and see.

Mayor Larry Kline will also be introduced next season, and it sounds like he鈥檒l be another unsavory character. Described as an 鈥溾80s style slick politician,鈥 he鈥檚 apparently a man who only looks out for himself. Not a great quality to have when Demodogs are roaming around.

Patricia Brown, on the other hand, is an elderly woman in her 70s who is more than willing to help others and give advice to the neighborhood kids. Though, considering what the kids in this story deal with, we can鈥檛 imagine what kind of useful tips she could offer.

We don鈥檛 know yet just how major or minor each role will be or who will be playing the new characters, but with the show continuing to be just as popular now as it was when it first came to Netflix, we have no doubt that plenty of actors will be vying for these parts.
