Stranger Things Star David Harbour Knows His Character's Fate
It's been over a year since we've gotten any new episodes of Stranger Things, but fans of the Netflix series are still holding onto their dedication by trying to find clues wherever they can about the third season, which is set to premiere next summer. David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper, has blessed us with some minor teases over the past few months, and now he's torturing us by claiming he knows how the series ends.
While speaking with CNET, Harbour both debunked recent speculation that the series will be ending with its third season, and confirmed that he knows what's next for his character. "We're either going to season 4 or season 5. It's still being debated," the actor shared. "I do know the arc of the story, though. This was something that I discussed with [show creators] the Duffer brothers right from Day One." Lucky him.
Harbour also pointed out similarities between Hopper and Hellboy, the character he'll play in the upcoming film based on Mike Mignola's comics. "Good guys sometimes [get] pissed off they have to do the right thing," Harbour said. We're assuming he'll have to protect Eleven and the town of Hawkins from even more dangerous threats come Season 3.
Here's to hoping Stranger Things is around for at least three more seasons—and that the time between now and next summer goes by extremely fast.
