But a trailer for season four revealed Hopper is alive and a prisoner in a Russian jail, and now David has shared more details of what fans can expect.
Speaking to Deadline, the 45-year-old said: "I’m really excited to let people see these really deep colors in him.
"Each season we see a different side of him. Last season was… a bit wackier, and I loved playing that. "Now [in Season 4] he is painted in a bit of a darker palette; he’s able to express some of these really deep things that we’ve… hinted at with the boxes in Season 2."
Fans of the show will know Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) found boxes in Hopper's attic labelled 'dad', 'Vietnam' and 'New York'.
As for the rest of season four outside his own storyline, David added: "It’s very epic. There are monsters and horror and scares.
"There’s also some great Indiana Jones-type action.”
However, the cast will have to wait before they can get stuck back into filming, after production was shut down earlier this year by the coronavirus pandemic.
