As Stranger Things Season 3 comes closer and closer to being released, the cast and creators are offering more details on the upcoming entry in the saga of Hawkins, Indiana, and if the season’s teasers are any indication, it’ll pack just as much emotional punch as it does action and adventure. David Harbour, one of the stars of the show, just gave more hints at Season 3, indicating that it will be poignant and touching.
According to Deadline, Harbour said that his character, Chief Jim Hopper, will struggle with changes in his adoptive daughter, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), as she begins to grow up. “He doesn’t like the idea of his baby daughter hanging out with boys. So the season starts with him a little bit uncomfortable,” he said, adding, “It’s very unexpected what happens in the end and it’s very, very moving. I think episode eight is the most moving thing we’ve ever shot.”
Stranger Things Season 3 has teased a number of new developments for its characters, with the show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, saying that a major theme of the season is change. This idea has been topped off with a series of teaser posters that carry the tagline “One summer can change everything.”
Season 3 is also expected to feature a new relationship dynamic between Hopper and Joyce (Winona Ryder), a developing relationship between Eleven and Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and a continuing friendship between Steve (Joe Keery) and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo). In addition is, of course, the return of the show’s terrifying villain, the Mind Flayer.
