Netflix is eyeing to start shooting on Stranger Things 4 this Fall.
According to Production Weekly, the streaming giant is hoping to starting shooting in October of this year. If production for the fourth season starts this year then we can expect to see it premiere in winter 2020 or spring 2021.
While Netflix hasn’t officially announced that the show has been renewed for a fourth season it is likely that it will be. Stranger Things 3 which just premiered was a critical success with an 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer are likely to return to direct episodes in the season alongside series producer Shawn Levy. A majority of the show’s cast from the last three seasons would also be expected to come back.
While there aren’t many details available for Stranger Things 4 we can still make some theories. Stranger Things 3 definitely ended in a way that begs more questions than it did answers. It teased that Hawkins isn’t out of the woods yet when it comes to being a danger and there’s at least one Demogorgon still out there.
Some fans have already speculated that the season could take place during Christmas since Mike and Eleven did tease they’d see each other again for Christmas break. It wouldn’t be the first time that the series has set its season’s against the backdrop of a major holiday. The series has previously been set during Halloween and most recently the 4th of July.
Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, and Dacre Montgomery. New additions to the cast for season three include Cary Elwes, Jake Busey, and Francesca Reale.
“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”
Stranger Things 3 is available for streaming on Netflix worldwide.
