Stranger Things Season 4 Teaser Reveals Hopper’s Fate

The post-credit scene of Stranger Things season 3 revealed that the Russians have various prisoners and at least one demogorgon at a facility in Kamchatka. A piece of dialogue from this scene piqued the interest of the viewers – “No, not the American.” the supervisor says. After months of speculation, Netflix has finally released a teaser trailer for Stranger Things season 4, confirming the identity of our mysterious “American”.

The teaser begins with an establishing shot that ushers us to a Soviet gulag, it then transitions to a couple of shots that presents people slaving away on a railroad. Towards the end, we see one of the workers take off his hat, and it is indeed everyone’s favourite former chief of police from Hawkins, Jim Hopper.

David Harbour as Jim Hopper
Season 3 ended with Hopper’s fate being ambiguous, but it left viewers thinking that he might very well have died beneath the Starcourt Mall.

Excited to announce the return of a beloved character, the Duffer Brothers teased fans with a hint of what’s next for David Harbour’s Hopper: ““Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American’; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human… and other.”

A premiere date for Stranger Things 4 has yet to be announced.

This is the second time the Netflix original killed off a character only for them to bring him/her back in the following season. In its freshman season, Millie Bobbie Brown’s Eleven meets her catastrophic end with the first demogorgon in the season finale, only for her to return in season two. If Stranger Things is going to backtrack every time a beloved character bites the dust, viewers may struggle to invest as the narrative momentum loses its weight every time the series brings back a dead character.
