In addition to Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink the recurring characters John Kerry (Steve Harrington) and Noah Schapp (Will Byers) have been promoted from recurring to series regulars. Sink will play Max, who described as a tough, suspicious and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys in this era. Montgomery is cast as Billy, Max’s hyper-confident and edgy older stepbrother, who drives a black Camaro, steals girlfriends away from other boys and is great at drinking games. However, lurking beneath his sheen of charisma is a violent and unpredictable nature.
Written and directed brothers Ross and Matt Duffer, “Stranger Things” will return for a nine-episode second season in 2017
