‘Stranger Things’ is getting a spin-off and David Harbour wants Jacob Elordi to play a young Hopper

As the internet continues to obsess over the newly-released volume two of Stranger Things’ season four—with edits of Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the show, garnering millions of views and likes—the Duffer brothers, aka the genius minds behind the series, have confirmed that there’s a few official spin-off ideas that are currently being planned.

And that’s not even the only good news we’re here to bring you today—according to a recent David Harbour (who plays Chief Jim Hopper in Stranger Things) interview with British GQ, we might be blessed with a young version of his DILF character being played by none other than Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi.

Though the show is set to end with season five and details about those spin-offs have not been shared just yet, Harbour indulged his thoughts with the publication about where his character Hopper could hypothetically go next. And he went as far as to suggest Elordi as the actor who he’d like to see take on a young Hop. Same David, same.

Speaking about Hop and the many ways in which the Stranger Things universe could continue to explore his backstory, should he ever pop up again in a spin-off, Harbour said, “At this point, I think Hopper is a character that can exist independent of me.”

He continued, “If they wanna go back in time, forward in time… I’d love to see another actor play Hopper, and see what they can bring to it.”

The publication then noted that the actor later followed up with an email to add that he thinks Elordi could take on the role of young Hopper, joking, “He could pull off being as handsome as I was at 20.”

30 memes that shook the internet after the release of ‘Stranger Things’ season 4

Disclaimer: This article includes ‘Stranger Things’ season 4 spoilers. If you’re someone who stopped watching the show in its third instalment, I recommend you to stay in the armpit, that is Mike Wheeler’s basement. If you’re caught up, however, proceed in an orderly fashion into the Watergate.

Ever since that girl Barb died a few years ago, it has been one thing after another in Hawkins. Set in the spring of 1986, six months after the Battle of Starcourt, the gang is now struggling with its aftermath as Eleven (Jane “El” Hopper)—played by Millie Bobby Brown—moves to California with the Byers. Having lost her powers, El struggles to adapt to her new life as she gets bullied by her classmates—something she keeps hidden from her boyfriend, Mike Wheeler.

Back home, Max Mayfield continues to mourn the loss of her stepbrother, Billy Hargrove, while Lucas Sinclair joins as a benchwarmer on the Hawkins High basketball team to aid his popularity in school. As Mike and Dustin Henderson become a proud part of the Dungeons & Dragons group, Hellfire Club, a new supernatural threat surfaces—one that sends the entire town reeling in horror as victims are left with their bones snapped and eyes gouged out.

Among high-pitched audio distortions and menacing background scores, Stranger Things season 4 is back with a new instalment of the Hawkins curse. Released three years after its announcement, audiences were bestowed with a much-alive Jim Hopper, a fresh heartthrob, a Barb cameo, a new sleep paralysis demon, adorable Dusteve dynamics, rekindled romance and an ‘extra sus’ character development of Will Byers. Oh, and we can’t forget the internet’s reaction to all of this.
