Stranger Things” star David Harbour recently opened up about the hit Netflix show, calling the upcoming fourth season his “favorite” for his character, Hawkins Chief of Police Jim Hopper, according to People.

Harbour has previously said the season will have a “huge reveal” about his character’s backstory, according to the Deseret News. He elaborated more on that in his recent interview with People.

“One of the great things that you can see with Hopper is that he was a protector, he’s a man of justice (and) he now has become a prisoner,” Harbour said. “He’s trapped and he’s isolated. And we get to see an entirely other color of him that has been hinted at. ... This season is my favorite because he really is going to show you some new colors and what he’s really made up of.

“You really do get to see a lot of his backstory of who he was as a warrior in a sense and sort of the mistakes he made in the past come back to visit him,” he continued. “And he just sort of unfolds.”

Harbour also said “Stranger Things” creators Matt and Ross Duffer are aware of the show’s fans and that several characters will receive “great fan service” in the new season.

Season 4 is expected to come out sometime in 2021. Based on filming schedules, the earliest the “Stranger Things” season could come out is July or August, according to Radio Times.

So far, “Stranger Things” has released the titles to the first three episodes of season 4, the Deseret News reported:

  • Episode 1 is called “The Hellfire Club”
  • Episode 2 is titled “Tick Tock Mr. Clock”
  • Episode 3 has been named “You Snooze You Lose.”

The upcoming season will expand the world of “Stranger Things,” the Deseret News reported. At the end of season 3, the Byers family and Eleven — who at least temporarily has lost her telekinetic powers — were moving away from Hawkins.

  • The new season will also feature several new cast members, including “Nightmare on Elm Street” star Robert Englund.
  • “Stranger Things” will extend beyond season 4. In August, Ross Duffer told the Hollywood Reporter: “Season 4 won’t be the end. We know what the end is, and we know when it is.”
