Since it was announced that Stranger Things Season 3 wouldn’t be hitting Netflix until 2019, we’ve all been gasping a little harder than usual for our spooky Hawkins fix.
Actor David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper on the show, has quenched the Season 3 thirst slightly (or made it worse, you decide) by teasing a little about what we can expect from Hopper in the coming episode.
“I wish I could characterise the season, but to me it’s so big,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “For example, did you find last season to be darker? There were certainly elements of it that were scary, but I thought there was also a lot of fun, a lot of joy and a lot of silliness, with Steve being a dad and the kids as Ghostbusters.
“Just taking my story, for example, it’s fun to see Hopper having adopted Eleven. She’s become legitimised in the society, in the world of Hawkins. And he’s a father now. He’s raising a teenage daughter, with all that that entails. So I think that can be pretty funny to see his inadequacies in all of this.”
It’s not much, but whatever. It’s Hopper.
Stranger Things Season 2 will also star returning cast members Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Cara Buono, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Dacre Montomgery and Sadie Sink, as well as new cast members Maya Thurman-Hawke as Robin, Jake Busey as Bruce, Francesca Reale as Heather and Cary Elwes as Mayor Kline.
The show was created by The Duffer Brothers, who serve as executive producers with Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson.
