Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season 3 of Stranger Things.

Season 3 of Stranger Things left everyone devastated with the mysterious conclusion for Jim Hopper. Hawkins's beloved chief of police supposedly died in the Starcourt Mall when he sacrificed himself to close the Upside Down. But, of course, suspicions arose when Joyce and Murray couldn't find his body in the rubble.

And now David Harbour, who plays Hopper, just changed his Instagram profile picture and it's causing fans to speculate.

Harbour changed his photo to the one below which he had previously posted in July, except the one he used is upside down and fragmented. Of course, fans are now hoping that this is a hint that Hopper will be coming back to Stranger Things for the recently announced fourth season.

Reddit user EvanTheVanKeeper posted a screenshot of the actor's profile pic and wrote, "This is what the spoiler from David Harbour's Instagram looks like, so, yep. They are gonna meat [sic] again hopefully."

Another Redditor asked in the comments section if it was just fan art that had no connection to what will happen next in the show, but the original poster replied, "It is, but don't you think he probably would have just moved on from Stranger Things if Hopper was actually dead?"

That's a very good point. Hopefully the world of fan theories is right on this one and Harbour is changing his photo as a sign that he'll be reprising his role next season.

Thanks to constant TV reruns and easy access via Netflix, The Office hasn't lost any of its popularity since airing its series finale in 2013. Now the beloved sitcom is about to be introduced to a whole new audience that (fortunately) isn't old enough to understand what Michael Scott means when he says "That's what she said." As Entertainment Weekly reports, a new book for kids, The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary, is out now.

While it might be hard to imagine how a children's book all about Dunder Mifflin would work, now that we're getting a glimpse at it, it seems like the best idea ever. A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary will introduce your little ones to all your favorite paper company employees—though they won't be the same Jim and Pam we all know so well. In this book, the illustrated characters are all school-aged.

Though the book is intended for kids ages 4 to 8, you can be sure that we'll be reading it, too.

You can order your copy of The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary for $16 on Amazon right now. And if you're looking for more Office collectibles that are available right now, head here.
