A vehicle spotted on the Stranger Things season 4 set may prove a huge fan theory to be true. Netflix and the Duffer Brothers recently announced that the fourth season of the massively successful series was officially happening. Fans were left with some major questions at the end of season 3, along with some broken hearts as the gang split up after the apparent death of Chief Jim Hopper. However, is Hopper really dead? That's been the main question in the minds of fans since July.
A few weeks ago, one lucky Redditor stumbled on to the Stranger Things season 4 set in Rome, Georgia and snapped some photos before being asked to leave. Included in the images is what appears to be Jim Hopper's Blazer, which could prove that the Police Chief of Hawkins is alive and well, as most fans suspect. There have been a lot of teases surrounding David Harbour's return, so it would not be at all surprising to see, though we could see some pretty big changes.
While the Blazer could belong to Hopper, it's also possible it belongs to another Hawkins police officer. There is no writing on the side of the vehicle like there has been in previous installments. Plus, Hopper's vehicle didn't look so good the last time we saw it, so this could be a new Blazer too. Regardless, this is certainly getting some Stranger Things fans to think about what the future holds for Jim Hopper and the rest of the characters. While the fans were shocked by the ending of season 3, star Millie Bobby Brown was even more surprised.
Millie Bobby Brown said she was "pissed" when she read the initial script for Stranger Things season 3. "I read the script and I was like, 'What, how is this even possible? Why are they moving away?'" The young actress was then informed to go back to episode 3 where Joyce talks about wanting to get away from Hawkins. "I don't know, I just felt really against it," she said. As for shooting that final scene, it sounds like it was hard on the whole cast. Brown explains.
"When we were filming it, all of us kids said to each other, 'So how are we all going to cry?' Because we don't really cry in front of each other very often. I usually am the one who's crying in every single scene and the kids have to deal with me listening to (sad) music and they're like, 'Oh God.' I thought, are we all going to go off and listen to music? And then one of the kids was like, 'Imagine if we have to do this for real one day.' And we were like, 'What do you mean?' And they were like, 'What if, when Stranger Things is over, we'll all have to say goodbye to each other and like this is it.' And we all started crying and then they rolled camera and said action. And that was it. We all started saying goodbye to each other. We felt too real."
While Stranger Things is still going strong, it will have to come to an end at some point, so the cast and crew will have to say their real goodbyes then. Luckily, we know we're getting at least one more season of the hit show, which is going to have some large shoes to fill after the events of season 3. Regardless, it looks like they're already off to an interesting start, which may be teasing the return of Jim Hopper. You can see the Blazer below, thanks to Reddit.
