After a six month pause in production due to the global health crisis, it seems that Netflix is once again ready to resume production for the fourth season of its hugely popular supernatural series Stranger Things.
According to Deadline, it reports that the show is targeting to resume shooting on 28 September. Stranger Things had been in the early stages of filming when it had to suspend filming on 13 March due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking full advantage of the unplanned hiatus, the writers for the show used the time to finish writing the plot for the season, and by June, they had the scripts completed.
Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American’ (Hopper); he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other,” series creators The Duffer Brothers teased about the upcoming season. “Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything. Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime — pray for the American.”
A confirmed release date for the show has yet to be announced but with production starting soon, a 2021 release date seems likely.
