The third season of "Stranger Things", set in the Summer of '85, is headed to Netflix on July 4th, and at MCM Comic Con this past weekend, star David Harbour teased that we're in for an emotional journey.
"Eleven is growing up and I think that’s the terrifying thing for Hopper. He doesn’t like the idea of his baby daughter hanging out with boys. So the season starts with him a little bit uncomfortable,” Harbour told fans at the event. “His daughter is becoming a teenager and beginning to find herself, so that’s scarier for Hopper than any Demogorgon creature that he’s going to have to deal with."
He continued, "You get to see a lot of that throughout the season and it’s very unexpected what happens in the end and it’s very, very moving."
"I think episode eight is the most moving thing we’ve ever shot."
