In the last episode of Stranger Things 3 Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) died in a freak accident and that left fans in awe but there was hope that he might be alive! He’s such a great character we knew they won’t kill that beloved character but wasn’t sure about it, the fans love him, and it was clear to me that they were just going to set him up for an insane and wonderful story arc!
Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for Stranger Things 4, and the first thing they show is that Hooper is alive and kicking and he’s living and being forced to work in the Soviet Union. In case you don’t remember, it was teased at the end of Stranger Things 3 that Hopper was in prison in Russia.
In a statement released with the teaser, the Duffer Brothers said in a statement:
We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway — and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper! Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….
Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime — pray for the American.”
From Russia with love,
The Duffer Brothers
