David Harbour was spot on with his portrayal of the skeptical small town sheriff. Used to daily routines of dealing with teenagers stealing garden gnomes, Harbour’s Sheriff Hopper slowly began to realize that there was indeed something out of this world going on in his town. MTV News caught up with Harbour at San Diego ComicCon and asked him what may be in store for his character in the second season of Stranger Things.
“It’s a year later, and one of the most subtle, interesting arcs of this season to me is what happens to a person when they take a heroic action and they become somewhat of a superhero and what that does to their ego and what it does to their sense of control issues and what it does to maybe where they feel like they start to overextend themselves and they have to check their ego or be humbled again,” he said. “That’s a humiliating thing for Hopper to feel, but it’s a very human thing.”
It will be interesting to see how Sheriff Hopper handles his newfound fame within the town of Hawkins, and how his previous experiences will prepare him for the next adventure, as the giant spider-like creature in the trailer may be a much bigger problem than the Demogorgon from Season 1. Harbor also said that the Stranger Things team is very dedicated to the show and wants to give fans the best experience possible.
“There’s really very little nonsense going on and we really want to make the best work. We really do care now about our fanbase and we want to make something really beautiful and really special, something that you can watch over and over again and really love.”
