Linda Hamilton knows a thing or two about getting in wild situations.

The former “Terminator” star will be joining the fifth season of “Stranger Things.”

During the Netflix TUDUM fan event, the streaming giant dropped previews and announcements on a slate of upcoming movies and shows. Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in a video to bring the Hamilton casting news, according to EW.

The specifics of Hamilton’s role were not divulged, just that she would appear on the hit sci-fi program.

Hamilton joins a list of ‘80s and ‘90s stars who have also appeared in past “Stranger Things” seasons like Winona Ryder, Sean Astin, Cary Elwes, Matthew Modine, Paul Resier, and Robert England.

The upcoming fifth season of “Stranger Things” won’t go into production until the Hollywood writers’ strike is resolved.

The show can currently be streamed on Netflix.
