We knew it!
You guys! I am so dang excited!! Netflix’s First Teaser Trailer For Stranger Things 4 Is Here and Jim Hopper Is Alive!!
Fair warning: Spoilers ahead!
Look, we all knew that the way Season 3 of Stranger Things ended, Jim Hopper had to be alive but it wasn’t confirmed, more just hinted at.
In the last scene we see the guards in a Russian prison saying something about “The American”.
Who else could they have been talking about?
It was Hopper all along. He was sucked into the time machine during the explosion and traveled back in time or even in time to another location in Russia.
At least some of my theory holds true because he looks alive and well. Except he also looks different because he’s missing his luscious locks. Yup, he’s bald.
The show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, said of the return:
“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….”
They added: “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.”
No official release date has been made but let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later. I need more STRANGER THINGS!!
