That's the bad news from David Harbour, but there's good news, too!
"Stranger Things" just picked up a couple of Golden Globe nominations for Season 2, including a nod for David Harbour as Chief Hopper. He's nominated in the long-winded category called Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. The series itself is also nominated for Best Television Series - Drama.
Harbour reacted with a statement, and a promise to dance if he wins:
I'll do the dance, Bea.😏 https://t.co/9oqtX2M1iA— David Harbour (@DavidKHarbour) December 11, 2017
Millie Bobby Brown (Jane/Eleven) supported her on-screen "dad":
Those nominations are for Season 2, which came out in October. Season 1 came out the year before, in July. Instead of getting Season 3 in October of 2018, as hoped, it sounds like the wait may be longer.
That's what Harbour hinted to Variety, referencing the Duffer Brothers' work process:
"I mean, one of the things that's annoying for fans is that it takes us a long time to do them. Like, you probably won't get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019. But also part of the thing is, like any good thing, they need time. And those guys work so hard. I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day."
The Duffer Brothers already plan to run "Stranger Things" for at least four seasons on Netflix. So they know where the story is going, they just aren't the fastest writers. That's OK, it just makes our 2018 a little less exciting on the TV/streaming front, especially since "Game of Thrones" Season 8 isn't expected until 2019 either. On the upside, way to go 2019! You're already slaying.
The "Stranger Things" producers and Duffers themselves have yet to weigh in, so we may be pleasantly surprised to see Season 3 show up next year anyway. Fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, root for Harbour to win his Golden Globe and dance for your pleasure, when the Globes air January 7, 2018 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. (Don't get too excited, though. Alexander Skarsgard is most likely to take that category.)
