Now that the Biden administration is officially underway, the QAnon community is in crisis. Adherents to the conspiracy theory, which postulates the existence of a cabal of media and left-wing political figures engaged in a child trafficking ring, believed that Inauguration Day would serve as the Great Awakening, and that President Trump would swoop in and arrest and execute all of his enemies.

Recently, People magazine published an interview with one of the show's lead actors David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper. Harbour revealed that the upcoming season is his favorite one yet because of the direction in which it takes the character of Hopper.
