Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's Daughter Maya Joins 'Stranger Things' Season 3

Maya Thurman-Hawke

Let the speculation begin—fans are one step closer to the next season of Stranger Things, as Netflix just announced some exciting casting news.

Fan favorite guest star Priah Ferguson—Lucas' (Caleb McLaughlin) pint-sized, sassy sister Erica—has been bumped up to full-time cast member for Season 3. But that's not all!


Maya Thurman-Hawke—yes, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's daughter—will join the cast as an "alternative girl" named Robin. Other than that, there's little information on this new character, but if Maya's genes are any indication, she'll likely do great at whatever her role requires.
