Apparently, Stranger Things will be very different when it returns in October. David Harbour, who plays police chief Jim Hopper, recently told Deadline that the hit show will be familiar, but also very different when season two finally lands on Netflix.
See what Harbour had to say below:
“[Season 2] will surprise you, and I think you will also be very happy. It still contains that magic I think we have in the first season, which is that sort of Amblin Entertainment-esque, Steven Spielberg kind of ‘magic of the movies’ feel to it, but it’s also very different.”
Harbour then went on to discuss how his character has changed in season two, also revealing that the show will take a different turn and explore darker themes:
“In terms of Hopper, it plays to a lot of darker themes. Even though in season 1 he certainly had his darkness, it plays to a lot of his struggles, and it sort of peels the onion back of how he struggles to deal with the pressures of feeling like you have saved a kid, and now who does that make you?”
Stranger Things season 2 premieres October 27, 2017 on Netflix.
