Season 4, Vol. 1 features a whole host of new characters.

Boasting a cast that's bigger and more eclectic than ever, Season 4, Vol. 1 of Stranger Things transports viewers back to the '80s, in all its shoebox diorama-filled glory.

Take Season 4, Episode 1, which captures a baseball game and a jamboree organized by the Hellfire Club, Hawkins High's very own Dungeons and Dragons group. Season 4 also pays homage to the so-called Satanic Panic and the fears concerning Soviet espionage. But how does Enzo come into the picture? And who's the actor who plays him?

Enzo, aka Dmitri Antonov (Tom Wlaschiha), gets into a considerable amount of trouble in 'Stranger Things.'

As Hopper's co-conspirator, Dmitri Antonov (Tom Wlaschiha) first appears in Season 4, Episode 2 of Stranger Things. A sympathetic prison guard, he quickly takes up a liking toward Hopper — who finds himself stranded in a labor camp after the Battle of Starcourt in the Season 3 finale of Stranger Things.

Dmitri uses the code name Enzo to reach out to Joyce (Winona Ryder). As loyal Stranger Things fans will tell you, the code name refers to the Italian eatery Hopper and Joyce were going to visit. Dmitri agrees to help Hopper reunite with Joyce. Joyce and Murray Bauman (Brett Gelman) set out on a mission to get hold of the $40,000 (the equivalent of around $100,000 today) Hopper promised to pay Dmitri.
