Terminator star Linda Hamilton has been added to season 5 of Stranger Things. The news was announced by Netflix at their TUDUM event, which is taking place in Brazil this year. Details on Hamilton’s character remain under wraps, as does the plot for season 5.
Spoilers for season 4 of Stranger Things ahead.
Season 4 of the series recently garnered high praise from critics and audiences alike, earning 13 Emmy Award nominations at the 74th Annual Awards. Season 4 took a dive into the past to reveal the sinister face behind the events of the first three seasons — Henry Creel/001/Peter Ballard. In the season, Vecna attempts to open portals to the real world from the Upside Down by horrifically murdering children, ultimately resulting in a showdown between him and Eleven. While there were some glorious returns — including Jim Hopper — the season ends with the question of Max Mayfield’s future hanging on a delicate thread after being Vecna’s last victim.
Stranger Things season 5 does not currently have a release date. Stay tuned with Nerds & Beyond for updates.
