Actor David Harbour, aka Chief Hopper on Stranger Things, spoke briefly of a Season 3 for the show in an interview with TMZ on Wednesday.
Harbour’s comment which referred to the third season was, “In Season 2 and Season 3 they’ll grow up. You’ll watch them grow up.” When asked whether Season 3 has officially been ordered, Harbour answered, “I think so, but if they hate Season 2 then maybe not. But I think there’ll be a Season 3.”
The show’s first season was released on Netflix in July of 2016 and became the sleeper hit of the season as droves of viewers tuned in to watch pre-teens search for their missing friend who has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The gang stumbles across a girl named Eleven who possesses strange powers which she can use to help them find their friend and uncover dangerous human experiments conducted at a local laboratory. The show is set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s.
The highly-anticipated Season 2 of Stranger Things is set to air Oct. 29, 2017. All nine episodes will debut together. This season is set a year after the first, and the characters will attempt to deal with the consequences of the events in the first season.
The first season wrapped up with some loose ends, and presumably, in Season 2 we will learn lots more. The cast of Stranger Things includes Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin, Finn Wolfhand as Mike, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas, Winona Ryder as Joyce, Noah Schnapp as Will, David Harbour as Chief Hopper, Natalia Dyer as Nancy, as Shannon Purser as Barbara.
The show’s producers have said they have been saving ideas for future seasons as long as they are allowed to continue making the show, reported Pop Culture Media.
