‘Stranger Things’ Season 2: Jim Hopper’s Backstory Explored Further

Stranger Things David Harbour
The second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things is nearly here, and with it means that policeman Jim Hopper will be back in Hawkins, Indiana to find out more about the strange extradimensional terrors affecting the town. As it turns out, Hopper’s deceased daughter will prove to be a crucial part of the movie’s plot, although not necessarily in a traditional sense.

TV Guide recently got to talk with Hopper actor David Harbor, who explains that while his character’s daughter has been dead in the world of Stranger Things prior to the events of the first season, her death still plays a role in the story of the second season:

“Hopper’s daughter will be the primary focus of Season 2, but not in the way that you think it will be… Hopper’s understanding of that relationship and Hopper’s understanding of being a father and of being a man grows deeper and deeper in Season 2, and we get a lot of time to explore what that is, but it won’t be in the literal way that you think it is. I don’t want to tell you any more than that because it’s good stuff.”

Harbour’s role in the second season of Stranger Things is deliberately being kept under wraps for the time being, as whatever the policeman has been up to is tied to the plot in a rather significant way that can’t be revaled just yet. Fans will only have to wait for a little less than two months before they can see the answers for themselves.

Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix on October 27, 2017. Its cast includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, and Cara Buono.
