As always, possible SPOILERS for Stranger Things 2 ahead!
David Harbour has found great success thanks to his role as Chief Hopper on Stranger Things. Before we see Stranger Things 3, Harbour is set to play the title character in a Hellboy reboot.
This hasn’t stopped Harbour from expressing what he would like to see in Season 3 of Stranger Things. After telling Variety that he is rooting “for some happiness for Joyce and Hopper,” perhaps involving the two finally getting together, Harbour was asked is there were any other things he wants to see in Stranger Things 3:
“Oh yeah, absolutely. The great thing about Star Wars, the original trilogy, is that it wrapped up in such a profound way. When you were first introduced to Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker at the beginning of the series, you don’t know what’s coming. Eventually you realize that he’s his father. I use the term soap opera, because it’s the classic definition of it, but I don’t mean it in the cheesy way. I mean it in the way the characters are inextricably linked. The town that they’re in and what’s happening in this particular town, couldn’t happen any other way. So I think that’s something that I want to see wrapped up in a very satisfying way, so you can look back to the first season and find all this pipe that we’ve laid in that pays off in further seasons.”
“The other thing I want is Jim to get back into some punching mode for Season 3. He didn’t punch anyone in Season 2! I would definitely like him to be running around Hawkins, punching people. The Duffers and I have talked about that for future seasons. We’ve also seen a lot of things, when Eleven goes down to his cellar and sees the boxes, we see a box that says Dad, a box that says New York, a box that says Vietnam. These are little Easter Eggs for Jim, further layers of the onion that can be peeled back. More will be revealed on that front.”
Aside from Hopper wielding a torch and going back for his hat in the tunnels of the Upside Down, his other trademark Indiana Jones comparison — just punching dudes in the face and knocking them out cold — was missing in Stranger Things 2. Let’s make up for that in Season 3, okay, Duffer brothers?
