The fourth season of Netflix’s hit series is one of the many productions currently on hiatus as Hollywood is waiting to get back to work, and when the cameras start rolling again, they’ll have a new cast member joining the roster in a mysterious role.
ComicBook.com has learned that cast member Joel Stoffer has a role in the season 4 cast. The outlet caught up with the actor as the seventh and final season of the Marvel series is airing on ABC, and Stoffer told them-
As for when Stoffer will get together with the crew, that remains to be seen. ‘They haven’t formed their schedule yet,’ Stoffer confirmed, and that’s pretty much all he could say. That’s not because he’s being secretive, but he’s just as much in the dark as we are. The actor explained:
On, Joel Stoffer plays Enoch Coltrane (seen above), one of the Chronicles, an extremely advanced and ancient kind of synthetic, semi-robotic beings that operate in the galaxy as observers. As you can see, he has just the right look to play some kind of menacing villain in, if that’s the kind of role they want him for. At the same time, Stoffer could easily be playing some kind of scientist or government agent who turns out to be a good guy, not unlike Alexei in the third season.
At this point, it’s anybody’s guess as to who Joel Stoffer is playing, but as we’ve seen throughout the first three seasons, plenty of supporting roles have the potential to become integral to the show’s plot.
season 4, in the hands of executive producers Matt & Ross Duffer, is bringing back Millie Bobbie Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Cary Elwes, Jake Busey, Maya Thurman-Hawk, Priah Ferguson, Cara Buono, and Brett Gelman
The four-season doesn’t have a set release date yet, though it was previously said to possibly arrive early in 2021. But that might have changed with the production delay this year, and the future release date will likely depend on how soon production can resume.
