According to casting intel obtained by TVLine, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer are introducing three major new characters, one of whom, “Max,” is a “tough and confident” 12-14 year-old female whose “appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era.” Max eschews Hawkins’ primary mode of transportation — the bicycle — for a skateboard, which she uses to get around everywhere.

The role is likely to raise eyebrows in light of the Duffer Brothers’ telling EW.com that while most Season 1 characters are poised to return in Season 2, Eleven’s involvement remains “up in the air.”
