Only days into David Harbour’s announcement of resuming his work on the sets of the Stranger Things finale, the actor made yet another declaration. While attending this year’s Motorcycle Comic Con event, David Harbour addressed fan’s questions regarding season 5. As he assured the fans that this season would finalize and conclude Stranger Things, he also reassured them that the end would be in “a real way”.
