The audience will find out more about Sheriff Hopper in Stranger Things season 4 than possibly any other season so far. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Harbour says there’s a lot of focus on Hopper and his secrets this season. Few known mysteries like the boxes in his attic will be answered, while some secret ones will come to light.

“We get to see a lot of Hopper at his most vulnerable, we’re gonna reveal a lot of backstory points that we’ve only hinted at in boxes in his attic. We’re gonna see a lot of these different threads, and also, we get to see a rebirth of him,” Harbour said.

David Harbour having previously revealed that Stranger Things season 4 will set up a “definite ending” for the show, now finally confirms a “very big” reveal that he kept secret for five years. He has been knowing the secret personally since filming the very first episode of the show.

Harbour shared with Entertainment Tonight, “There’s one thing in it that plays very big in this season that I’ve known since the first frame of the first season.”

“It’s so satisfying to have had an idea five years prior, and to go like, ‘Oh, this is a season when we’re gonna let out this secret that we were using just as a subtle thing to inform something.’ We’re gonna lay it out finally, and it’s really cool,” he said.

Stranger Things star David Harbour hinted that there will be a season 5 of the supernatural thriller Netflix series

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are now available for streaming on Netflix. But the audience is still awaiting season 4. Although the much expected season was announced in 2019, briefly after season 3 was released, there’s yet no word on when it will be released. Due to the coronavirus pandemic filming of the series was postponed. Despite the fact that filming has wrapped and Stranger Things season 4 trailers have been released, it’s still not ready for viewing and it is not known how much longer the wait will be. Though the stars have confirmed that the wait will be worth it.

David Harbour heavily implied to ET Canada that fans of Stranger Things can look forward to season 5, although season 4 hasn’t been released yet. When the chance of a season 5 was brought up, Harbour gave a promising response. As he wasn’t supposed to talk about or even know this information, his closeness to the Duffer brothers has left him privy to certain insider details. The actor said that while filming for Stranger Things season 4, the Duffer brothers tended to “bring up things that might move forward into that next season.”

Hopper’s death was teased at the end of season 3 and it appears that he won’t be returning for season 4 but for season 5 hopefully, leaking Stranger Things season 5 will not put Harbour in too much trouble because fans couldn’t handle the heartbreak of potentially losing him twice.
