During this season of Stranger Things had many carefree moments ̵
While the fans were shocked that such an important character in the series would be written off so suddenly, a scene after the closing credits offered hope that Hopper could still be alive. The scene is set in a prison in a military base in Kamchatka, Russia. Two soldiers run through the prison halls and a soldier reaches for the prison cells to open them. The other one stops him and says, "No, not the American," which makes viewers believe that the American they're talking about could be Hopper, who was either kidnapped by the Russians or transported through some kind of portal.
When asked about the scene, however, David Harbor did not do much to stem the rumors. When he spoke with Entertainment Tonight the actor said he knew nothing about Hopper's fate: "I mean, I have no idea! [laughs] I have no idea, I mean that, of course, that's mine too Hope, but it seems pretty crazy, you know, this machine went up and exploded and Hopper seemed to be trapped there, he looked around a bit, but he seemed trapped and the machine exploded, I do not know, me mine, it seems weird, but I do not know how. "
But in an interview with The Entertainment Blog Slash Movie Harbor confirmed that Hopper is still alive. Asked if Hopper is behind the door in Russian jail, Harbor said, "This is the most likely scenario," adding that the Russian terminator villain Hop called "The American" throughout the season. "Someone else, which makes the same reference, so is a key connection. " Although this is a bit perishable, fans are happy to know that in Stranger Things 4 we'll see more of Hopper and his colorful shirts.
