Stranger Things 2 Cast Revealed: Eleven Is Back, Lord Of The Rings Star Signs Up

Mikey from The Goonies joins cult Netflix hit

Stranger Things, the iconic smash hit series on Netflix, is in production for its second series and big news has leaked about the cast line-up.

Millie Bobby Brown, the actress who played Eleven, the role that inspired a million Halloween dress-ups, revealed that she would be returning for series two along with all the original kids and Winona Ryder.

They will be joined by Sean Astin, best known for his roles as Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Mikey Walsh in The Goonies - a show often referenced in the first series of Stranger Things. 

Astin will play a nerd who used to go to school with Ryder's character and now runs the local RadioShack. 

Netflix and The Duffer Brothers who produce Stranger Things also recently released a trailer with the titles for all nine episodes of the second season (one more than the first series), which will be out in 2017.

In the fall of 1984...the adventure continues...
