Stranger Things fans will recognise the character of Murray Bauman, the ex journalist and conspiracy theorist whose role in the show has become increasingly prominent since season two.

Now actor Brett Gelman has been promoted to series regular for season four of the hit Netflix show.

Gelman has recently experienced huge success with Fleabag from Amazon Prime Video. He received two cast ensemble nominations in the SAGs – one for Fleabag and one for Stranger Things.

The actor has previously been in Camping from HBO, a number of specials on Adult Swim and Love from Judd Apatow.

He is also playing a villain in a spy thriller from Paramount called Without Remorse, which stars Michael B Jordan.
