This is good news for fans of the dynamic between the kids, even if El and Will won’t necessarily be part of the group. Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Max are still in Hawkins, as are probably Steve, Nancy, and Robin. More Erica has to mean more Hawkins, right? If that’s the case, I’m wondering if Hawkins Lab will reopen somehow. It would be a stretch for another portal to the Upside Down to open in Hawkins, Indiana, but the Hawkins characters have to be involved in the plot. Whatever happens, hopefully Erica will be teamed up with Steve, Dustin, and/or Robin again.
