People think Hopper is still alive after the teaser for season four of Stranger Things dropped yesterday (30th September).

Season three ofย Stranger Things was pretty hit and miss and after the colossal success of the first two seasons, a lot of people felt pretty let down with what Netflix gave them earlier this year.

I’ll be honest; it didn’t really do it for me. The beginning of the season was just teens kissing with not many strange things happening, and the latter half meandered through generic upside-down f*ckery with big ol’ monsters and then Hopper died.


Don’t get me wrong, I’m not happy that Hopper died and if it weren’t for the fact that he’s now a big name in Hollywood, with roles in the MCU, his own superhero franchise (that probably won’t go anywhere) and other such titles, then I’d think for certain that he was coming back to Stranger Things; especially given that there was no body after his death.

With the release of the season four confirmation though, people are pretty certain that Hopper’s life is salvageable…


Is Hopper still alive in Stranger Things?

The prevailing fan theory is that Hopper is alive and – though probably not well – in Russia.

As the teaser forebodingly says “We’re not in Hawkins anymore,” fans are speculating this is because the gang are now in the Soviet state, trying to save their friend and sometimes father figure.


Is Billy still alive in Stranger Things?

Though he didn’t get a Steve Harrington-esque glow-up, Billy apparent demise led many to want him back, with another theory being that he’s in the upside down with Hopper, hiding int eh spooky version of the Sheriff’s cabin.


Will Stranger Things season 4 be in Russia?

It could well be. 80s media – and media set in the 80s -are pretty reliant on their Russian villains and we already know that some of their countrymen have some pretty nefarious desires in this particular universe.


Team that withย We’re not in Hawkins anymore, and it’s looking more and more likely.

When will Stranger Things season 4 be released?

The series is set for a July 2021 release.

Quite a long wait then…
