As fans are counting down the days to Netflix's "Stranger Things" Season 2, more and more information is coming out of the cast about what's to come in the highly anticipated sophomore season of the show. David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper on the acclaimed series, previously likened the second season to strawberry ice cream, saying that some fans who love vanilla ice cream might not like strawberry. He also admitted that the second season is darker and stranger than the first, so sci-fi fans would probably get a kick out of that.

More recently, the 42-year old actor shared that fans and viewers will get to see more about Chief Hopper's past, specifically his late daughter.

Actor hints at story line for Chief Hopper

According to David Harbour, Chief Hopper's daughter will be "the primary focus" of the sophomore season, "but not in the way that you think it will be." His perplexing statement to TV Guide may address some fan theories in which Eleven is Chief Hopper's real daughter and that she did not die of an illness.

The actor explained that his character's understanding of his relationship with his daughter, his "understanding of being a father and of being a man grows deeper and deeper" in "Stranger Things" season 2. He hinted that the upcoming season will indeed explore this relationship, but not in a "literal way." He may be indicating that Hopper's story in relation to his daughter won't be told through flashbacks and instead may be told through the stories of Hawkins and its inhabitants itself. Nonetheless, Harbour promised that "it's good stuff."
