Stranger Things Season 3 is well on its way, but fans of the Netflix show will have to wait until sometime in 2019. In the meantime, speculations have already arisen from the community of avid watchers and even the actors themselves. David Harbour has voiced some hope for Sheriff Hopper and his dynamic with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder).
The actor explained further in his interview with Variety:
“I’ve been pretty vocal about how I love the dynamic between Joyce and Hopper, which I don’t feel like we got a lot of time to explore in Season 2. I just love that dynamic of these two lost people. I equate it to Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway in Chinatown or Indiana Jones and Marion in Raiders of the Lost Ark.'”
