Stranger Things Trailer Reveals Hopper’s Alive!

We’re not in Hawkins anymore, and neither is Hopper. From what we’ve seen with the latest teaser trailer, we’ve journeyed to Russia. Could Hopper be the American prisoner mentioned at the end of season three? Most likely, yes!

Stranger Things recently dropped a teaser trailer officially announcing a fourth season for the show. Then, on Valentine’s Day, they posted another teaser, this time showing us a clip of Hopper, most likely in Russia, building a train track.

“For the faithful, Happy Valentine’s Day,” actor DK Harbour, who plays Hopper, said in his repost of the trailer on Instagram.

As an aside, Harbour is—strangely enough—basically portraying the Russian version of Captain America in the upcoming Black Widow movie. So, Hopper’s circumstances, and Harbour’s return to a character involved with Russia, seems quite fitting.

The first Stranger Things season four trailer, which directly stated we’re no longer in Hawkins, combined with the “From Russia with love” text on the Stranger Things Twitter post, suggests we’re moving over to Russia completely for the fourth season. Leaving the town of Hawkins far behind. Maybe it’s time for a change after three seasons focused on a town which has been through some terrifying events.

The trailer reveals Hopper somehow survived in the explosion which saved Hawkins, and perhaps suggests season four will focus on a rescue mission to get Hopper.

“Saw this on Youtube and thought it was fake,” Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, said in response to Harbour’s IG post. “You look badass dude!”

“This is the Strangest Thing yet!” Justin Long responded on the IG post.

Though we first heard season four might be the final season, actor Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, spoke to TV host Lorraine Kelly about his belief we’d at least see one more season. He told Kelly that production most likely would have told the cast if four was going to be the last, so here’s to hoping there’s some truth to this and we see another season.

What we know about the upcoming season so far is the main filming will begin sometime in February or early March, and the rumor is that we can expect season four to drop sometime in 2020.

Until then, you can go back and re-binge the first three seasons on Netflix!
