Stranger Things - Season 2 Final Trailer

Millie Bobby Brown has an idea for the perfect guest role for an upcoming season of Stranger Things: Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio.

She told the Press Association she’d love to see DiCaprio on the show as “Eleven’s long-lost brother”, adding: “I have already made a storyline. Leo, if you want to be in Stranger Things, here’s the contract.”

Season 3 of the show will already have its fair share of celebrity guest stars: Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will feature as the mayor of Hawkins, Indiana and a morally questionable journalist for The Hawkins Post.

Producer Shawn Levy has indicated the season will be set during the summer of 1985, a year after the conclusion of season 2. He also gave away a few plot details, saying: “Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that’s a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas.”

“But again, they’re like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there’s fun to that instability.”

“The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy and Netflix really know how to grow with the characters so it’s very good,” Brown said of season 3. “They know how to write to us and how we’re growing and our voices are changing and our mindsets are changing and we are maturing every day.”

Brown recently became the youngest person ever to be included on Time magazine‘s list of the world’s most 100 influential people.

She’s also set to become one of the youngest Hollywood stars ever to land a producer credit on a feature film, working on an adaptation of Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes Mysteries, recounting the adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister, set to be played by Brown.
