With creators confirming that they are now working on a nine-episode second season comes the news that a casting call has been put out, for new actors to come and work alongside co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer, as well as executive producer Dan Cohen.

Though it isn't listed specifically by name in the casting call, it's clear that Stranger Things is the show being referenced, as the filming location is Atlanta, Georgia, where the first season shot the majority of its scenes.

Posted online, the casting call says it's looking for "1980s-looking people", and is "especially seeking males with longer hair styles, and females willing to cut their bangs".

Those who have watched the first season will immediately jump to the conclusion that the women being sought by the show's casting directors are going to be those who come from the same place as season 1 character Eleven.

Actress Millie Bobby Brown shaved her head for the role as Eleven and maintained a short cut throughout the entire season - except for when she was in disguise and wearing a blonde wig.

Cohen says of the second season: "We want a sequel that feels like it's bigger and badder and darker, while answering more of the questions and getting deeper into what's going on. [The Duffer Brothers] want it to be that great sequel that is satisfying and yet expands the world."

Stranger Things season 1 is available now on Netflix, with season 2 expected to broadcast at some point in 2017.
