Fans have expressed their desire to see Stranger Things characters Joyce and Sheriff Jim Hopper form a romance, even creating a ship name for the two characters: Jopper.
Season 2 saw the two characters grow closer, hinting at a potential relationship that's more than platonic. David Harbour, who plays Hopper, has made it clear he believes the two should have a romance.
“From the very beginning, I thought that these are two tortured, messed up, beautiful people who are like puzzle pieces that can’t stand each other but actually need each other,” he said in an interview with Variety.
Millie Bobby Brown is now joining fray of Jopper shippers.
The actress also believes a romance would create an interesting scenario for Eleven, considering she would technically be a stepsister to Will and Jonathan Byers.
"And in the show, if they rekindle, that means Will and Eleven will be step-siblings," she said. "I would love that because Noah [Schnapp] is my boy best friend.”

The 14-year-old actress also mentioned Harbour and Winona Ryder already play the role of her mom and dad on set.
"Winona Ryder and David Harbor are like my parents,” she said. “On set, they’re like, ‘Stop running, what are you eating, why are you eating that?’ David is like, ‘Another boy?’"
Finn Wolfhard already revealed the season would be the Summer of Love, so it would only be fitting if Joyce and Hopper fall in love.
