AceShowbiz - "Stranger Things" season 3 left fans heartbroken with its end. The new season of Netflix fantasy series saw one of the major characters meeting his demise, or not. A new report suggests that the said character may be returning for a potential new season.
[SPOILER ALERT!] In the season, the characters were trying to shut down the experiment revolving around the Upside Down which was conducted by the Soviets. Unfortunately, Indiana police chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) appeared to be killed by the explosion during the process.
However, fans were later led to believe that Hopper was still alive. A mid-credits scene revealed the Russians are holding an unidentified American captive in a bunker, which could be Hopper.
Further fueling the speculation, Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Hopper’s adopted daughter El, hints that Hopper might be alive somewhere. "They had prerecorded David and they played it out loud. I didn't want to read that speech. I didn't want to hear about it. I didn't want to rehearse it," the actress told Entertainment Weekly of a speech penned by Hopper that was discovered in a shirt pocket by Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) after Hopp's apparent death.
"I just immediately wanted to put a camera on me and find the way I react and the way I reacted was pure devastation and sadness, and a distraught child that just lost her father or so she thinks," she continued. "So it was definitely a raw emotion, especially because David Harbour and I are really close. He is just one of the greatest men. I think something I admire about David is he respects girls and women so much. It felt so … I'm so gutted and I was like, 'Oh, my God, this is horrible.' So the emotions were raw in that scene for sure."
When asked about a potential season 4, Brown shared, "The Duffer Brothers are like my older brothers, so I call them all the time, and I definitely try to press them on little clues and hints. I know things here and there, but nothing deep or something I could tell you about." She added, "If there was a season four, we would be really excited, but right now, we have to see how season three goes and how the fans react to it."
All episodes of "Stranger Things" are now streaming on Netflix.
