The new additions also include Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye and Nikola Djuricko.
Englund will play Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
Wlaschiha, who became famous for playing Jaqen H’ghar in HBO’s Game of Thrones, will portray Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Jim Hopper (Harbour), who was revealed to be at a Russian prison towards the end of season three.
Bower is joining as Peter Ballard, a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital.
