Stranger Things fans have got a long ways to go before we start seeing anything from Season 3. One day we'll start learning about what we can expect and we'll eventually see the series return to Netflix. That won't happen until 2019! In the meantime, all we can do is speculate what might happen and read about what the cast would like to see happen.
During a recent interview with Variety, David Harbour reveals what he hopes to see in Season 3. One of the main things is seeing the relationship between Sheriff Hopper and Joyce (Winona Ryder) explored more.
"I’ve been pretty vocal about how I love the dynamic between Joyce and Hopper, which I don’t feel like we got a lot of time to explore in Season 2. I just love that dynamic of these two lost people. I equate it to Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway in Chinatown or Indiana Jones and Marion in Raiders of the Lost Ark.'"
It's not hard to see that these two characters will eventually get together. They clearly have strong feelings for each other. Harbour goes on to say:
"These great, throwback, they hate each other but love each other kind of tropes. It’s done so sophisticatedly by the Duffers, and Winona is really game for it, too. We love playing scenes with each other. I would love more stuff with her."
Harbour goes on to discuss wanting to work with Gaten Matarazzo and how he also wants to dive into Hopper's past:
"I’d love to work with Gaten. I want to get into the backstory of Hopper more. When Eleven goes into the basement, she sees a bunch of boxes, one of which says 'Hawkins Lab.' 'Dad.' 'Vietnam.' 'New York.' There’s a lot of story we can get into around Hopper’s time as a cop in New York, Hopper’s time in Vietnam. I would love to see more of that, but we have a ton of great characters, so I don’t know how much they’ll be able to do."
That's what I'm interested in! I would love to start getting into the backstory of Hopper. He's such a great character and getting some more history in his past is something that the series needs to get into.
