Harbour’s previous comments

Harbour has commented on the end of “Stranger Things 3” and the death of his character in the past. He told Entertainment Tonight that Hopper appeared to be dead. But he said it was important to hold out hope.

  • Per Harbour: “It seems pretty crazy … that machine went off and blew up and Hopper seemed to be trapped there. He did glance around a little bit, but he seemed to be trapped and the machine exploded.”
  • More Harbour: “I mean, we should always hold onto hope. We should never let go of hope — but Barb is really dead.”
