Stranger Things took to Twitter to introduce four new characters who will be joining the general weirdness of Hawkins, Indiana, in the show's fourth season. The Netflix show tweeted out upside-down headshots on Wednesday, along with details about who the new characters will be.

Joining Eleven, Mike, Steve and the gang will be Vickie, who Stranger Things said is "a cool, fast-talking band nerd who catches the eye of one of our beloved heroes;" Patrick, a basketballer from Hawkins whose life spirals "out of control;" new guidance counselor Ms. Kelly; and Chrissy, the head cheerleader from Hawkins High, who has "a dark secret."

Vickie will be played by Amybeth McNulty, Patrick by Myles Truitt, Ms. Kelly by Regina Ting Chen and Chrissy by Grace Van Dien.

A trailer for the fourth season dropped last month, hinting at Eleven's back story and her time in captivity.
