As the cast list for Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie film continues to grow. We couldn’t help but note that a number of our Netflix favorites have apparently gotten roles.

Of course, it was already reported that Emma Mackey, who portrays Maeve Wiley, will act alongside her doppelganger star Margot Robbie in the film.

However, Eric Effiong icon Ncuti Gatwa and his on-screen beau Connor Swindells, who plays Adam Groff, have joined the cast. It will be really fun to watch the trio outside the world of their hit Netflix Original.

But the cast of Barbie was already an extensive one. Starring in the film are Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, Emerald Fennell, Sharon Rooney, Scott Evans, Ana Cruz Kayne, Ritu Arya, and Jamie Demetriou.

Joining them will be Margot, Ryan Gosling, America Ferrara, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Hari Nef, and Will Ferrell.

The season 4 release date has yet to be announced by Netflix. Although we can expect to arrive in late 2022 at the earliest.

Due to the pandemic’s delays, we’ve only had one series each year so far, with Season 1 showing in January 2019, Season 2 in January 2020, and Season 3 in September 2021. So season 4 should also release somewhere around the autumn of 2022 like last years’ season 3.
