David Harbour Knows How Hopper’s Story Will End


David Harbour had an interview with CNET one of the questions was about his character and the story arc of Stranger Things.

You’ve told me that Stranger Things may go to season 4 or 5 — but that you already know how it all ends. What can you say?
We’re either going to season 4 or season 5. It’s still being debated. I do know the arc of the story, though. This was something that I discussed with [show creators] the Duffer brothers right from day one.

I know somewhat a lot of Hopper’s place in that story because the more you can know about the end of your story, the more you can set up. I feel with acting you can sort of see a character make certain choices and you can feel what is behind it. As you see the end of the story, you’ll start to feel why certain characters behaved certain ways. I think that stuff’s really important, like knowing where your character’s going.

A lot of times you don’t get that in TV. But the great thing about this is that we knew what season 1 was, and we had ideas about if it extended — because we didn’t know we’d get picked up — but if it extended, what the end of the actual thing would be. Like Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi have an arc to them. I think Stranger Things, be it season 4 or season 5, has an arc to it that I understand.

I feel very proud of that because we’re not going to get lost in our story and leave these strands. We’re going to tie things up.

We still don’t know the plot of Season 3, but only that it is set in 1985 and the release date is sometime during the summer of 2019.
