David Harbor thought Stranger Things would be canceled immediately

Stranger Things has become one of Netflix’s biggest hits, but there was a time when those involved in the project didn’t have much faith in it. That includes David Harbour, who plays Hawkins’ police chief Jim Hooper. The actor spoke to the BBC’s The One Show and revealed that he thought Stranger Things would be canceled after its first season.

Halfway through, I remember my hair person came up to me, like about episode four, we were shooting, and she said, “I don’t think this is going to work.”

David Harbor continued: “When we finished, we finished, I thought we weren’t going to get a second season, we were going to be the first Netflix show ever to never get a second season. We thought no one would see it, it would be a disaster.” After its release in 2016, Stranger Things would become a breakout hit for the streaming service, putting David Harbour’s fears of cancellation to rest.

The fifth and final season of Stranger Things will find that David Harbor brings Jim Hooper’s story to a close, and while the actor once thought the character would die, he has since changed his mind. “As he resurrects as the man he wants to be, it would almost be nice to keep him alive.said Harbour.Let’s see what they choose.” The Duffer brothers have stated that the author’s place for Stranger Things 5 will start soon. “We are going to have a little holiday in July,said Ross Duffer. “And then we come back. I know the writers room starts the first week of August.Matt Duffer added that the fifth and final season will likely be shorter than the fourth season. “The only reason we don’t expect to be as long as [season 4]If you look at it, almost two hours pass before our children are really drawn into a supernatural mystery,Matt said. “You get to know them, you get to see them in their lives, they struggle with adjusting to high school and so on, Steve tries to find a date, all that. None of that is obviously going to happen [in season 5].
