Linda Hamilton, perhaps best known for her role as Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise, is set to appear in Netflix’s Stranger Things for the sci-fi drama’s fifth and final season.

Hamilton’s Terminator co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger said at the ‘Tudum: A Global Fan Event’ in Brazil: “I’m excited that I can announce that my old friend, a fantastic actress, a badass, is joining the Netflix family in one of my favorite shows.” Hamilton then appeared via video, saying: “I don’t know how to be a fangirl and an actress at the same time. I’m going to work on that. Good to see you, Arnold, and everyone else, I’ll see you in Hawkins.”

Hamilton originated the role of Sarah Connor in the first Terminator film in 1984, reprising the role in the blockbuster sequel “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” in 1991. The actress had kept a relatively low profile until she again reprised the role of Connor in 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate. Hamilton’s other credits include films like “Children of the Corn” and the TV series “Beauty and the Beast,” the latter of which earned her an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations.
