“Stranger Things” Adds Robert Englund, Eduardo Franco, and Others to Season 4

Freddy Krueger is coming to Hawkins! Well … not exactly, but the man behind the iconic horror movie character from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is.

As noted by Variety, actor Robert Englund, who has played Freddy since 1984, is joining the Stranger Things cast for season four, alongside a handful of other new faces. Variety shares that Englund’s role isn’t too far from the murderous Freddy; he’ll play someone named Victor Creel, “a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.” Sounds terrifying — and right in the Stranger Things wheelhouse! It also makes a lot of sense to cast one of the ultimate ’80s horror movie actors in the series, which currently takes place in that same decade. Everything feels full-circle!

Also joining the season four crew is Eduardo Franco, previously seen in Booksmart, who

‘Stranger Things’ Reveals 8 New Cast Members, Plus Lots of Details for Season 4

Netflix has announced eight new cast members for the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things, which is one of the most popular shows on the streaming service.

Season four had begun production right when the pandemic began and filming was paused until the end of September. While all of the plot details are still being kept secret, character descriptions for the new cast members reveal some interesting things.

We previously learned in the season four teaser that David Harbour‘s character Hopper survived at the end of season three and he’s now being held prisoner in the Soviet Union.

It was also previously revealed that that season four premiere episode will be titled “The Hellfire Club” and we have some more insight into the club thanks to one of the character descriptions.

A psychiatric hospital will be a setting for the new season and two new characters have ties

Robert Englund Joins ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Cast

Here is something that I believe: Robert Englund should have won the Oscar over Michael Douglas in 1988 for his performance as Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. No, really. The “greed is good” speech from Wall Street is fine and whatever, but it’s no “welcome to primetime, bitch” or “What’s wrong, Joey? Feeling tongue-tied?” Unfortunately, we can’t go back in time and take away Douglas’ Oscar, but we can return to the 1980s through Stranger Things, which cast Englund for season four.

Englund is set to play Victor Creel, “a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The horror movie icon is one of several new additions to the Netflix hit, along with Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar from Game of Thrones) as a Russian

CBS Settles for 3rd Place on Night of 4 Season Premieres

It was another Monday night battle between NBC and ABC

CBS premiered its new seasons for two sitcoms and two dramas last night and ended up in third place anyway. “The Neighborhood” did pretty well and “Bob Hearts Abishola’s” Nielsen numbers were fine, but “All Rise” and “Bull” couldn’t keep up.

In any event, with “The Voice” facing off against “Dancing With the Stars,” Monday’s primetime was destined to come down to NBC vs. ABC.
