Priah Ferguson plays Erica Sinclair, sister of Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), on Netflix's popular science fiction series Stranger Things and has been upped to series regular for the show's fourth season.

Ferguson's character had already taken on a more prominent role in the series' third season, wherein Erica helped Dustin, Steve, and Robin discover a secret Russian base underneath the new Starcourt Mall.

The 13 year old actress has also appeared in Atlanta, Mercy Street, and Bluff City Law, as well as the 2018 film The Oath.

At the end of Season 3 of Stranger Things, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) is seen taking her sons and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) out of Hawkins, Indiana to start a new life.

Another scene is shown afterwards, taking place on the far eastern end of the USSR, which shows Russian guards feeding a prisoner to an imprisoned demogorgon with the instructions of "not the American" heard before the credits rolled.

The American was widely assumed to be Jim Hopper (David Harbour) by fans, a theory that seems to be supported by a new teaser released by Netflix this month.

Although Hopper being the American was already a theory speculated by fans of the show, the Duffer brothers will have some explaining to do as [SPOILER ALERT] the last scene with the character involved a huge explosion when Joyce and the gang closed the gate to the Upside Down to stop the Mind Flayer at the end of the show's third season.

"Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more," the Duffer brothers teased. "In the meantime — pray for the American."

Matt and Ross Duffer are twin brothers who serve as writers, directors, executive producers, and showrunners on the popular series alongside executive producer/director Shawn Levy and executive producers Dan Cohen and Iain Paterson.

"From the start, Stranger Things has been inspiring to all of us lucky enough to work on it," Shawn Levy said. "My adventure here in Lithuania in bringing the reveal of the “American” to life has been a huge challenge but an even bigger inspiration. [...] All the hard work was worth it, however, to bring our fans—the greatest fans in the world— this epic reveal they’ve been hoping and waiting for. And this is only the beginning."

The Duffer brothers have said that a "new horror" is beginning to surface in this new season and that it is something "long buried" that "connects everything."

Teasers for the new season show a ticking clock in the Upside Down with the tagline "We're not in Hawkins anymore," implying a much bigger scope for this season's narrative.

The season will reportedly be released later this year, with the first episode being titled "The Hellfire Club." All of the main cast is set to return.
