Linda Hamilton Joins Cast Of STRANGER THINGS For Their Final Season

Last year brought us, Robert Englund, in a very memorable role for Season Four of the hit Netflix show – and at this year’s TUDUM event – the big NETFLIX announcement event that just went down – the streaming giant, and the folks behind the show that they’ve locked Linda Hamilton in to join the squad in the final season – Season Five – of STRANGER THINGS.

With the writer’s strike currently halting production of pretty much everything, this final season is on hold but hopefully soon that will all get settled and things can get back on track.

No word on just exactly what Hamilton’s role will be or how many episodes she may grace but – I’ll take any amount of Linda Hamilton that they are willing to serve up.

Look for this one to ramp up quickly once the writers get back in the writing room.
