David Harbour Says Stranger Things Season 4 is His “Favorite” for Hopper

Stranger Things season 4 can’t come soon enough.

Stranger Things season 4 won’t be airing on Netflix anytime soon, but the actors are trying their best to keep the hype flowing before the Netflix series returns.

Take David Harbour, for instance. Harbour – who portrays Jim Hopper in the Duffer brothers’ production – has already pointed at a shocking backstory for his role in the season ahead, and now the actor has shared a bit more about his prospects after the seemingly tragic cliff-hanger at the end of season 3.

In an interview with People, Harbour assured Stranger Things viewers we’ll be seeing a lot of their favorite characters doing what they love, but with a “twist.”

In particular, he kept teasing Hopper’s “twist,” adding:

One of the great things that you can see with Hopper is that he was a protector, he’s a man of justice [and] he now has become a prisoner. He’s trapped and he’s isolated.

“And we get to see an entirely another color of him that has been hinted at,” Harbour continued, before confirming the upcoming fourth season is his “favorite” so far, much thanks to Hopper’s “new colors.”

[We’re going to see] what he’s really made up of.

As for just how long we’re going to have to wait to see the ‘new’ Hopper, which remains a mystery, the Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy, has stated the difficulties suffered by the show have been for the best.

He said in a recent interview,

I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current season four.

But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays is exceptional, maybe better than ever.

The first three seasons of Stranger Things is currently streaming on Netflix.
