Production on the sequel to Netflix’s smash hit Stranger Things is currently underway outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Stranger Things 2 will pick up a year after the events of season one in the fall of 1984. The second season will explore the consequences of Will Byers’ time spent in the upside down and will deal with the interdimensional portal that is still open at the department of energy. Recently, executive producer Shawn Levy teased the characters will be struggling with the desire for a return to normalcy and the impossibility of it.
Thanks to Chief Hopper himself, actor David Harbour has shared a photo of himself suited back up in uniform and having a cigarette. The photo caption is a nod to the iconic line from Chinatown, “Forget it, Jake, it’s Chinatown”. Could Harbour be drawing influence from Jack Nicholson in the season two? The actor has said before that he looks to leading male actors of the seventies such as Harrison Ford and Roy Scheider for inspiration. His character is an amalgamation of Indiana Jones and Chief Brody from Jaws.
Stranger Things 2 stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb Mclaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp.
