Stranger Things' David Harbour confirms HUGE secret spanning five years will finally be exposed in season four

STRANGER Things star David Harbour has dropped a bombshell that a five year secret will be revealed in the show's upcoming season.

The actor who plays Jim Hopper on the Netflix series revealed a "huge" five-year secret regarding his character's history will be exposed in season four.

"There's one thing in it that plays very big in this season that I've known since the first frame of the first season," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"Me and [series creators] the Duffers would sit around and speculate, 'Oh, wouldn't this be cool?' the minute we started shooting.

"We never thought we'd even get a second season, and then we get to do it in this season."

Harbour added: "It's so satisfying to have had an idea five years prior, and to go like, 'Oh, this is a season when we're gonna let out this secret that we were using just as a subtle thing to inform something.'

"We're gonna lay it out finally, and it's really cool."

Harbour's latest revelations comes after he panicked Netflix fans when he hinted at a 'definite ending' ahead of the season four premiere.

The new series of the hit show is currently in production, and fans are desperate to know what happens to the residents of Hawkins.

David, 46, hinted the show could come to an end after the new season.

He told Collider: "We’re introducing new stuff, but we’re also tightening and wrapping up in a certain direction to make it have a clear, clean, specific and definite ending at some point, which I can’t really talk about."

His character Jim was presumed dead at the end of season three after he sacrificed himself in an explosion in a bid to save Hawkins and its residents.

However, teasers for the new series have revealed Jim has somehow ended up in a Russian prison.

It was claimed last year that the show's bosses The Duffer Brothers will be splitting the final season into two distinct parts and ending with a fifth series.

However, the pair went on to reveal they have had the show's ending mapped out since season one and won't be 'churning out' more episodes than that.

The duo told Deadline: "We've known the ending of the show for quite a while.

"The honest truth is we didn't know if we'd go beyond Season One, so we like the idea of Season One that it could function basically as its own standalone piece, like almost as a limited series."

They added: "But it had the potential to go beyond that. And if it were to go beyond that, we had an idea of where it would go.

"Yeah, and we have an ending in mind. We don't want to just keep churning it out."

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are available on Netflix with season four's release date yet to be confirmed.
