‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Sends Brett Gelman to Investigate Conspiracies
Like most Stranger Things fans, we spend the majority of our days around conspiracy corkboards of the series’ many mysteries. We may yet have company for Season 2, as comedian Brett Gelman joins the cast to sleuth around Hawkins for a bit.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the actor-comedian and all-around “that guy” Gelman will take the Season 2 role of Murray Bauman, described as “a disgraced journalist-turned-conspiracy theorist who is investigating a cold case in Hawkins” Plenty of those lying around!
Elsewhere of Stranger Things Season 2, we know shooting will take place in Atlanta through April for a 2017 premiere. The story will pick up in the fall of 1984, while creators Matt and Ross Duffer have teased a James Cameron sequel influence in crafting the second chapter. We’ll also learn more about the Demogorgon and Upside Down, as teased in our exclusive concept art piece, while Sadie Sink and Power Rangers star Dacre Montgomery have been added to the cast in regular roles, along with original Goonies star Sean Astin, Aliens baddie Paul Reiser, and actress Linnea Berthelsen.
More Stranger Things details are surely coming, including a list of directors, but will Season 2 recapture the same conspiracy craze?
