The holiday weekend is almost to an end, which means most Stranger Things fans have already binged the show’s third season. The new episodes were filled with ‘80s goodness and provided new scares, laughs, and tears. One of the show’s stars, David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper), recently took to Instagram to post some fan art and comment on the show’s shocking finale…

“In loving memory... (Artist?) #machina #schtopp #vroomvroom,” Harbour wrote.
As you can see, the fan art (currently, the artist is unknown) is of Hopper’s police car, and the caption is referring to the character’s supposed death. While Harbour is playing into the story that his character really died, most fans aren’t buying it.
First and foremost, we didn’t see a body, which is pretty much the number one rule of television deaths. Second, the season’s post-credit scene saw a Russian soldier being told to feed a prisoner to their Demogorgon, but is ordered to spare "the American." Many people believe Hop is said American. Either way, it’s going to be a long time before we know for sure.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Harbour was asked whether or not he’d be returning for a fourth season.
"There's always discussion on set about kicking around ideas about what would be cool and stuff, but there's a lot of stuff that goes down in season three that you're going to want to pay attention to before you start thinking at all about the future," Harbour teases. "They pulled no punches with the season, and it's a big deal what goes down. So you really have to watch this before you start even speculating."
