As production continues for Netflix’s Stranger Things, the streamer has announced eight new cast additions for the upcoming fourth season of the hit sci-fi series. Nightmare on Elm Street star Robert Englund has been tapped for a recurring role with Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd), Eduardo Franco (Booksmart), and Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great) signing on as series regulars.

The official character descriptions for the new cast members are listed below which also give us more insight into what to expect in the next season:

-Quinn is set for the role of The Hellfire Club’s leader, Eddie Munson, an audacious 80’s metalhead who runs Hawkins High’s official D&D club. Hated by those who don’t understand him — and beloved by those who do — Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.
-Englund is playing the role of Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
-Augustus will portray Lt. Colonel Sullivan, an intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all.
-Dye’s character is Jason Carver, a handsome and rich sports star who is dating the most popular girl in school. But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason’s perfect world begins to unravel.
-Djuricko’s character Yuri is a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.
