At this point, the third season of Stranger Things ended years ago . But you probably still have questions about Hopper's fate. Well, here is some good news: We already know that Hopper will be back at Stranger Things in season four. And, according to star David Harbor, the chief of police's return will go hand in hand with a big reveal of his backstory – something he has known himself since the show started.
When the actor recently spoke at Liverpool Comic Con, he noticed the scene of the second season, in which Elf found boxes labeled "Dad", "Vietnam" and "New York" in Hopper's attic.
"So there are these three things that we set this season: If we don't pay off, it means they are bad writers," he said. "And the Duffer brothers are very good writers. So I know very well that in season four we'll give you a big, huge reveal about Hopper's backstory that we haven't really told you about."

" It's my favorite thing about him that you don't know anything about him yet, but it has to do with these backstories of New York, Vietnam, and Daddy, "Harbor continued. "And I'm very happy that you know more about it. And of course it relates to things he does with Eleven and Joyce and things like that."
