All FFG Cthulhu Mythos games contain investigators drawn from Arkham Horror's stable of 48 characters (49 if you count Calvin Wright, the Damned).

The trend in Eldritch Horror is clear:
1. 12 characters in the base game;
2. 8 characters in each large-box expansion;
3. 4 characters in each small-box expansion (except Forsaken Lore).

The announcement on FFG's page indicates that the following familiar characters will be returning in The Dreamlands:
-Amanda Sharpe, the Student
-Luke Robinson, the Dreamer

Per the longstanding tradition, there should be 6 more characters in The Dreamlands. That would leave the last 4 characters for the fourth and final small-box expanion (again, not counting Calvin Wright).

I would imagine that Gloria Goldberg, the Author, will be another of the old friends rejoining us in the Dreamlands, since her special powers in other games are generally related to other worlds.

Who wants to take another guess? By my reckoning, the candidates should be:
1. "Ashcan" Pete, the Drifter
2. Bob Jenkins, the Salesman
3. Carolyn Fern, the Psychologist
4. Darrell Simmons, the Photographer
5. Kate Winthrop, the Scientist
6. Rita Young, the Athlete
7. Roland Banks, the Fed
8. Vincent Lee, the Doctor
9. William Yorick, the Gravedigger

Also, the Investigators of Arkham Horror book has "52 tales" of the investigators. So, the four new ones in Mansions of Madness 2nd appear to be coming into their own.
