As millions and millions of people discovered during this year's Super Bowl, the second season of the Stranger Things will debut on Netflix this Halloween. Aside from the short announcement teaser, and a few images, not much is known about the sci-fi show's highly-anticipated second season.
However, star David Harbour has started to unveil a little information about Chief Hopper's journey in season two. During an AMA on Mogul, the actor revealed that his story arc in the new episodes will be quite different, and he may not be the hero he was throughout season one.
“hop starts season 2 in a completely different place than season 1. he saved will and has found a renewed interest in life. so his arc for s2 in my mind becomes more about butting up against the places where his hero fantasy can’t take him. the places where that hero complex may force him to make the wrong decisions. its a satisfying, completely different journey in s2.”
The actor went on to explain that Hopper has a unique relationship with music, and fans will get to see that explored a little more in the new season.
“you’ll get to see exactly Hop’s taste in music this season, so I won’t spoil it for you. there’s a great moment in ep2 where Hop and music are a big thing. and you may get to see him … well, I won’t say more. it was very very fun to film tho.”
The first season of Stranger Things starred Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. The second season will feature Sadie Sink as Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era, and Power Rangers star Dacre Montgomery as Billy, Max’s hyper-confident, and edgy older step-brother.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director.
