The story will remain in Hawkins, in 1959, an ordinary town with ordinary worries. “Young Jim Hopper’s car won’t start, Bob Newby’s sister doesn’t take his radio show seriously, and Joyce Maldonado just wants to graduate and leave town. When new student Henry Creel arrives, his family discovers that “a new beginning is not so easy…and the shadows of the past last a long time.”
In the casting, Shane Attwooll will play Chief Hopper, Jim’s father, in office before him. Louis McCartney will be Henry Creel, brought to become Vecna. Chase Brown will play Lonnie Byers, Joyce’s future ex-husband, Christopher Buckley will play a young Bob, while Kemi Awoderu and Ammar Duffus will play Sue and Charles, Lucas’s parents. We will also see young versions of the parents of Mike and Nancy or Dustin. And then Patrick Vaill will be Dr. Brenner from the 50’s, taking Matthew Modine’s place.
