Maya Hawke's Brother Joins The Cast Of Stranger Things For Season 4

When she arrived in the third season of Stranger Things, Robin Buckley became a near-instant fan favorite. Scoops Ahoy's most provocative employee earned audiences' respect through her cunning and attitude, channeled via a rockstar performance by Maya Hawke.

Now, it looks like viewers have a family get together to look forward to, as Stranger Things has apparently cast Hawke's IRL brother, Levon Thurman-Hawke, as an undisclosed new character for the show's highly anticipated fourth season. This will mark Thurman-Hawke's first major on-screen acting appearance.

Levon Thurman-Hawke, 18, and Maya Hawke, 22, are the children of movie stars Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, who were married from 1998 to 2005. The details of his role on Stranger Things season four haven't been disclosed, and it's currently uncertain whether he'll be performing as a recurring character or in a guest capacity. Speculation is already circulating among the very active fandom that he'll be playing his real-life sister's fictional brother. Based on set photos, it seems clear that he skews toward punk rock — or, at the very least, Billy Idol — chic.

Hawkins? More like "Hawke's in," right?

At the end of Stranger Things' season 3 finale, "The Battle of Starcourt," fans were left with a double helping of questions to ponder moving forward. The anticipation only grew when word came down that the series had joined the legion of programming facing production setbacks due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to People, Stranger Things had been shooting for a month when production was shut down in March. Filming resumed at the beginning of October, and an early 2021 release date is rumored to be the goal. Hopefully, we won't have to wait long to find out how the addition of Thurman-Hawke's character factors into the lives of Hawkins' most consistently traumatized residents.

Based on a season 4 Stranger Things casting call posted to What's On Netflix, it appears that Thurman-Hawke could be playing Eddie. Eddie is described in the release as an "'80s metalhead, but nerdy and into Dungeons and Dragons/Metallica, a little scary looking at first glance." The role is listed as "recurring," so there's a chance that we'll be seeing plenty of this potential new fan favorite in the coming season.

At the very least, we can all get excited that Stranger Things 4 is now officially a Thurman-Hawke family affair.
