Hopper was believed to be dead at the end of season 3, though fans have been speculating for months that the police chief had survived, Forbes reported.

“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,” Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators and showrunners of “Stranger Things,” said in a statement, according to Variety. “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.”

“Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more,” the Duffer brothers added. “In the meantime — pray for the American.”

Fans have reacted with excitement to the reveal that Hopper is still alive.
