Could this be the year we finally get justice for Barb?
The fan-favorite character will still be dead when the second season of Stranger Things returns to Netflix in October, but it looks like Barb will still have a heavy impact on the new episodes.
During an interview with Uproxx, star David Harbour, who plays Chief Hopper on the series, revealed that his character will still be affected by what happened to Barb. Her disappearance will weigh heavily on his shoulders.
“There’s a bit of a cover-up kind of going on that Hopper is head of. We don’t need people to know about the interdimensional monster that was running around town. He’s also got the Barb thing. Barb was never found, so that’s addressed. And then he’s got this reemergence of Eleven, which he knows something about at the end of last season. There is some interaction on that front, in terms of his relationship with Eleven, and we see what that becomes in season two, which is very complex. Hopper is sort of pulled in a lot of different directions.”
Hopper will have a lot going on in season two. With the town of Hawkins recovering from one of the biggest tragedies in its history, all eyes will be on the police chief. He's going to have to answer many of the questions that were raised in season one.
Barb went missing in the early episodes and wasn't seen again until she was killed in the Upside-Down at the end of the season. Since then, fans have begged to have #JusticeForBarb, but that hasn't happened yet.
