Season 2 of “Stranger Things” may have aired just a couple of months ago, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early for some season 3 speculation.
In an interview with Variety, David Harbour said he would like to dive deeper into Chief Hopper’s past.
“There’s a lot of story we can get into around Hopper’s time as a cop in New York, Hopper’s time in Vietnam,” he explained. “I would love to see more of that, but we have a ton of great characters, so I don’t know how much they’ll be able to do.”
He was also asked about the “Stairwell Theory“. In which he said;
“I’m not supposed to comment on that,” the actor responded with a laugh. “I think [creators Matt and Ross Duffer] have a plan. There’s a lot of things coming, but I don’t know too much about that.”
As you know in the Season 1 finale a flashback of Hopper’s daughter featured a stairwell that was used in the Hawkins Lab in Season 2, which lead fans to speculate that Hopper’s daughter was treated at the Hawkins facility before she died.
Harbour also commented that he would also like to see a Hopper-Steve story arc in the future after witnessed the unexpected friendship between Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Steve (Joe Keery).
But after that Harbour kept a closed lip on season 3 of Stranger things, but did hint that the next release date would most likely be January or February of 2019, which sucks we were kind of hoping it would have a September or October 2018 release, but in the meantime expect “Stranger Things” season 3 to drop sometimes in 2018 or 2019 on Netflix. Production will begin in April.
