"#Stranger Things" season 2 arrives on Netflix on October 31, and in between then and now, fans have a lot of time to come up with theories as to where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) has gone and how she's surviving with the help of police chief Jim Hopper (#David Harbour). Filming has concluded for the show's sophomore season, which hits Netflix later this year, and Harbour has broken his silence on what's to come in the highly anticipated new season.

Jim Hopper will experience the drawbacks of being a hero

The first season of the Matt and Ross Duffer-created sci-fi series found Jim Hopper as the unlikely hero who in the span of eight episodes found the strength to rise up above his own problems to reach out and help others.

In "Stranger Things" season 2, Harbour's Chief Hopper will begin to deal with the repercussions of being that very hero. Harbour recently spoke to Deadline about where Chief Hopper is on his journey in the sophomore season. He admitted, "I think we start with the delusions of what [being a hero] might bring...and the fantasy life that might be dangerous...You’ll start to see the pitfalls of that as the season goes on."

Some fans might not like the sophomore season

"Stranger Things" season 2 has finished filming, as per Slash Film, and it may look like a departure from what the debut season was. Of course, the show would want to create a different experience for fans and viewers of the show and would not want to repeat themselves in the sophomore season, but it seems like there will be a stark difference between the two seasons, if one asks David Harbour.

The actor likened the first season to vanilla ice cream, saying that the second season is more like strawberry ice cream. He explained that they could not recreate what they did in the previous season, so they had to create something else—a different flavor. With that, he explained, "Some people are going to like strawberry and some people are going to like vanilla better."

Harbour's career outside of 'Stranger Things'

"Stranger Things" season 2 isn't the only huge deal on David Harbour's plate right now, as he's also been cast as the titular character in the upcoming "Hellboy" reboot. Following reports that he was in the running to play Cable in "Deadpool 2," news came about that he will play another fictional character instead, this time in the form of "Hellboy." For now, fans can catch him when he returns to the second season of "Stranger Things," which premieres on Netflix on October 31.
