Actor-comedian Brett Gelman (“Eagleheart”) has joined the second season of Netflix’s summer hit “Stranger Things.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll play Murray Bauman, “a disgraced journalist-turned conspiracy theorist who is investigating a cold case in Hawkins.”
Gelman joins a growing list of new additions to the series, including Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, Linnea Berthelsen, Sadie Sink, and Dacre Montgomery. They’ll appear alongside such returning cast members as Joe Kerry, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono and Matthew Modine.
“There’s definitely a handful of really compelling new characters this season, but absolutely servicing the core group first and foremost,” executive producer Shawn Levy previously said.”Like the show itself, it’s multigenerational new characters and really, really intriguing ones.”
Set in the 1980s, the first season of “Stranger Things” followed the family and friends of Will Byers, a boy who disappears one rainy night in the fictional small town of Hawkins, Indiana. As the search for Will goes on, the townspeople begin to unravel a series of mysteries involving secret government experiments, supernatural forces and a strange little girl.
Details of the second season have been kept largely under wraps, but we do know the episode titles thanks to a teaser video. We also know that although Barb won’t return for the second season, her missing-persons case will play a part in the storyline.
Created by Matt and Ross Duffer, the first season of “Stranger Things” is available on Netflix. The he second season is slated for release in 2017.
