The Netflix supernatural series that was previously known as Montauk has been given a new name …as well as more castmembers!
The network announced the 8-episode series, called Montauk at the time, back in June, when they revealed that Winona Ryder had signed on to star, but moving forward, the series will be known as Stranger Things.
In addition to the new name, the network has also added more names to the cast. Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton, will join adult leads Winona Ryder and David Harbour in the new series, according to Deadline.
Stranger Things is set in 1980’s in a Long Island beach town and follows a two-year-old boy who mysteriously vanishes into thin air. Family, friends and cops try to uncover the truth about his disappearance, which ends up involving top-secret government experiments, supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. The new show will be written, directed and executive produced by Matt and Ross Duffer, who also worked on FOX thriller Wayward Pines.
The series is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2016.
