When asked about if more of Hopper’s backstory would unfold in season 3, Harbour says, “In terms of Hopper, all the things that we’ve had from Season 1 and Season 2 come to a boiling point for him in the beginning of Season 3.”
Harbour continues, “So, this is a year for Hopper of real domesticity. Eleven’s been validated, she has a birth certificate. She’s a part of the world in some way. It’s really how Hopper deals with domestic issues, like real day-to-day stuff, that takes him to this place of . . . he might be better at drama than he is at just sort of … (hanging out).”
Harbour was also asked about a potential romance between Hopper and Winona Ryder’s Joyce, “In Season 2 he gets to relive his fatherhood experiences and really understand how to care for a child. We’ve seen him kind of as a dad and as a cop, and we haven’t seen him as sort of a man, in terms of having a real equal woman to tangle with. I would like to see that..”
