Netflix just dropped a couple new names who will appear in Hawkins, Ind., for the next season of Stranger Things.

Veteran actor Cary Elwes (he'll always be Wesley to us) joins up as Mayor Kline, who's described as "Handsome, slick, and sleazy. Your classic 80s politician -- more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs." (Note to Netflix: That sounds a lot like 2018 politicians, too.)

And Jake Busey shows up as "a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor." And that, frankly, may be the most realistic piece of casting we've seen in a long while.

Settle in, though — we're not expecting to see new Stranger Things until 2019.
