Netflix has announced two casting decisions for the upcoming third season of the network’s mega-hit Stranger Things. First up, Priah Ferguson will resume her role as Erica Sinclair and that the character will become a regular on the show. Second, Maya Hawke has been cast as the new character Robin. Below are headshots for Ferguson (left) and Hawke (right) along with character descriptions from the press release:
Priah Ferguson will continue her role as “Erica Sinclair”, Lucas’ strong-willed little sister returns, only this time with an army of friends. No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous and unexpected new threat.
Maya Hawke will play “Robin”, an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life… and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins.
