Some signs suggest that Stranger Things fans may not have to wait as long as they thought for the release of Season 4.
A total of 40 million households tuned in to watch the series within its first few days on Netflix, and as many as 18 million viewers have seen every episode so far.
Although executive producer Shawn Levy has claimed that the newest season will arrive “very soon”, the wait for Season 4 has been protracted.
This is also the season in which we decided to go big,” Levy told Variety. It’s artistically and narratively ambitious – much more so than the previous three seasons – and we’ve shot in Georgia, Lithuania, and New Mexico.
One of numerous teaser trailer movies hinted that something would be announced on May 6. As a teaser, it was, however, just that. A character we thought was dead was revealed to be still alive.
Now, a release date announcement for the new season is on the horizon. According to Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with actor David Harbour, the film’s production will be completed in August 2021. Collider reported that it would be published towards the end of 2021, while it is more likely to be launched at the beginning of 2022.
The teaser revealed that Detective Jim Hopper, who looked slain in Season 3, is still alive. The official season four summary is still pending, although all indications point to it being even darker than previous seasons.
Several major characters are returning, and none of the primary cast members will be leaving.
