Well, the Stranger Things season 4 trailer is not released during the Super Bowl. It seems that season 4 will be the scariest season ever. There are some rumors that Noah Schnapp will get replaced by Tom Holland but it is not true. It’s because of the age difference.

You must know that there is no need to have any kind of introduction when we are talking about the series. It is because the Horror Sci-Fi series happens to be one of the biggest hits on Netflix, the streaming giant.

Since the first season, the series did manage to become the biggest flagship show. So that arrived first on Netflix in 2016. The series brings a large fanbase and audience to Netflix which is indeed remarkable. Let us move forward to know more about the upcoming season. 

Renewal of Stranger Things Season 4

We are sure that you will be happy to know that Netflix did confirm the renewal. It is of Stranger Things Season 4. Yes, your favorite series is indeed on its way to entertain and thrill you once again in its fourth season.

There are so many viewers who assure that when you are watching the Stranger Things series. There will be too much excitement that the viewer can experience. That will be along with the thrill that the viewer will get for uncountable moments.

One thing is sure and that is Stranger Things is such an amazing sci-fi horror television series that each and every series lover must watch. It is among the most popular series that you must not miss out on watching at any cost. 

After some days of teasing the fans and followers leading up to 30th September 2019, the streaming giant finally announced that the Stranger Things series will be once again returning to entertain its large audience with the fourth and upcoming season.

Stranger Things season 4 surely won’t arrive until the end of 2021 on Netflix. To wait before the release of the new adventures of Mike, Will, Eleven, Dustin, and the others, here is everything we already know about the sequel to the already cult series.

Stranger Things S4 in two minutes flat:

  • The shooting stopped then restarted, the series postponed. 

Last March, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the series’ teams to put production on hold. Consequence: the broadcast of the series has obviously been postponed.

But rest assured, production has resumed, as the image below makes clear. Netflix also confirmed the information in its latest quarterly report. “The production of some of our most important programs has resumed, including season 4 of Stranger Things,” we read.

  • See you on Netflix in 2021

When we don’t know yet; but season 4 is expected to land on the SVoD platform next year, presumably around the middle or end of the year. It will therefore take patience to take advantage of it.

  • When should season 4 have been released?

In a question and answer session on Instagram, David Harbor (interpreter of Sheriff Jim Hopper) revealed that the fourth season was originally scheduled for early 2021.

Finally, the Coronavirus pandemic upset this schedule, and the continuation of the adventures of the children (now teenagers) of Hawkins will therefore be several months behind.

  • A trailer rich in lessons 

Hopper is alive and well. That was the big question at the end of the previous season, and the sequel teaser provided a clear answer to it. We see the Sheriff, Eleven’s adoptive father, at work in a snowy setting. He seems a prisoner of the Russian enemies fought since the genesis of the series.

  • The season won’t be the last. 

The information comes straight from Ross Duffer’s mouth. The show’s co-creator has confirmed that a fifth season will see the light of day to fans’ delight.

Imminent resumption for filming?

After long fewer interruptions, filming resumed yesterday, as shown in the image above. On the other hand, if the health context no longer allows it, it will immediately be put in brackets again.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, this is what Ross Duffer said: “We’re all very excited to get back to work, but the priority is still the safety of the team, and that’s what will dictate the opportune moment to start filming again.”

The shooting of Hawkins’s adolescents’ new adventures will therefore begin with more than six months of delay.

What release date for season 4?

Even today, the vagueness remains on this subject. Even if the filming resumes and continues normally, the new episodes’ uploading should not be done before mid-2021, at the earliest. It’s even more likely that the airing will be late next year.

“I believe the new episodes were due to arrive early next year, but that will probably be postponed.” Here is what David Harbor (the sheriff hopper) said in an impromptu question and answer session on his Instagram account. Patience, therefore.

Before the pandemic, the show’s teams had published a video to announce the start of filming. We could see the different actors gathered with the directors and the rest of the subscription streaming platform (SVoD).

What does the trailer tell us?

The teaser is only 50 seconds long but gives some interesting clues and mostly answers one of the main questions fans have for the sequel: Is Sheriff Jim Hopper still alive?

The answer is yes. The trailer leaves little doubt about this since the character played by David Harbor appears in close-up. We see him in the middle of a forced labor session, which strongly resembles Russia’s snow-covered territories.

As announced, part of the new adventures of Will, Mike, Eleven, Dustin, and the others will therefore take place in the USSR, the new (temporary?) Home of their favorite sheriff.

Thus, part of the sequel to the series will be filmed far from Uncle Sam’s country. Filming should take place in Lithuania, near the location where HBO’s hit series Chernobyl was shot.

It’s not really a surprise. Stranger Things was expected to be exported to the Old Continent, where Russian scientists are scheming to unravel the Upside Down’s mysteries.

Rodeo FX with special effects:

It’s all fresh, and the Canadian studio Rodeo FX has just announced that it will be in charge of the special effects for the show’s future season. This is not really a surprise since it was already the Quebec company that was in charge of modeling the creatures of season 3. “This new partnership of Rodeo FX with Netflix makes me very proud of the Quebec talent in terms of visual effects,” said Quebec Premier Francois Legault.

According to The Journal of Quebec, this partnership, a symbol of good relations between Netflix and Canada, should help maintain 100 to 150 jobs in the province, the first media to have relayed this information.

An enigmatic title for the first episode:

A tweet was enough to ignite some fans. It must be said that it is signed by the series’s writers and therefore changes rumors not always very substantiated to which we were used recently.

It’s content? An image of the first episode’s script on which we can clearly see its title: “Chapter one: The Hellfire Club.” X-Men fans will immediately understand this reference to the Club of the Damned.

As a reminder, this group brings together politicians and powerful financiers who oppose the X-Men in the Marvel saga. They are the ones who manipulated Jean Gray-Phoenix, who will escape their control and will become Dark Phoenix.

Is there a clue about Eleven, who, like Dark Phoenix, has telekinetic powers? Will it also fall under the influence of an organization or a malicious character? Everything is possible. Caution is required; this title may still change by the time the fourth season is released, the date of which we still do not know.

Serial rumors:

Obviously, this new season is talking a lot, and rumors are rife. You will find below an anthology of the most credible information relayed by the American press.

  • Four new characters?

It is the TV Line site, very active on Stranger Things’ news, which says it. According to our colleagues’ information, the Duffer brothers would like to add four recurring characters to the series’s cast. The first three, teenagers, are expected to rub shoulders with the heroes gang in the United States. He would be a popular sportsman in high school, a Metal fan, and a smoking fan. Finally, the last role planned would be that of an adult abroad, perhaps in Russia, a country that should occupy an important place in the show’s new season.

  • Eleven in big bad?

This is a far-fetched rumor. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) has been one of the show’s most iconic characters since its debut. She escaped from the lab where she had served as a guinea pig and set out to help the children find Will.

Such a heroine could never go wrong, could she? Still, a theory hinted at Reddit claims that Eleven could have been infected with the “mind flayer”  and could be used the same way the creepy Billy did in season three. Far-fetched? Maybe, but that would shake up the story.

Some things to refresh your memory:

A city lost on the United States’ edge, children, a monster, and a parallel dimension. Welcome to Hawkins, Indiana, the scene of the very famous Stranger Things series where it all begins when 12-year-old Will Byers mysteriously disappears.

His friends then decide to search for him and come across Eleven, a young girl with supernatural powers. Everything speeds up when the Demogorgon, a nightmare creature, appears in the town. With the local police chief’s help, they will have to get busy fighting the demon, find their friend, and maybe lift the veil on a terrible conspiracy.

How to see Stranger Things? 

It would be best if you had a Netflix subscription. The series is among the flagship original content of the streaming service. Its first season is one of the programs you can watch for free on the streaming platform.

The Cast:

In season 4, we expect to see the same cast as the previous one. It includes Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Maya Hawke as Robin, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, Sadie Sink as Max Mayfield, Priah Ferguson as Erica Sinclair, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, and David Harbor as Jim Hopper.

New arrivals:

Netflix has announced the arrival of the cast of several actors for the fourth season of Stranger Things. Among them, Robert Englund, the frightening Freddy Krueger in Claws of the Night and its variations. According to Entertainment Weekly, he will be Victor Creel, a disturbed man imprisoned in a mental hospital.

Tom Wlaschiha will be Dmitri, a Russian correctional officer who will sympathize with Hopper. Finally, Jamie Campbell Bower, Mason Die, Joseph Quinn, and Sherman Augustus should also be there.

In addition to it, you will be feeling greater happiness when you will know that Netflix, the streaming giant did manage to sign a multi-year deal with The Duffer Brothers. You must know that the deal will be on top of another one that Netflix has already going on with Shawn Levy who happens to be the producer of the sci-fi series.

But if we are going to talk about the release date of Stranger Things Season 4 then you can expect it around early 2021. Yet, that will totally depend on the production team and how much time they are going to take to get it back on track.

There are more chances for the fourth season to release in Summer 2021 at the earliest. It will be possible for all the fans and supporters to watch the upcoming season as soon as it will be available on Netflix in 2021. It seems like we will have to wait for some more time.

When speaking in an interview with Collider, Shawn Levy unveils some important things while commenting on the filming delays of Stranger Things Season 4 earlier in 2020. He says, “I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD.

But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays is exceptional, maybe better than ever.”

Where is the filming of Stranger Things taking place?

Stranger Things is indeed going to be a relief to all the series lovers and fans as we all have gone through a lot of terrible things during this Coronavirus pandemic. It will be possible for all the fans to get their minds off the terrible things that did happen over the last few months and focus on the joy they will get when watching Stranger Things Season 4.

It is sure that the fans will get a little bit of a surprise when they will know that some of the production of the series will take place outside of Atlanta. Now, that is what you can believe to be happening for the first time in the history of Stranger Things. 

We did learn from the teaser trailer that was released earlier that the Stranger Things team did begin filming for the series in Vilnius, Lithuania. Also, you must have to know that Movieweb did announce that the series creators have wrapped filming at that location in February 2020.

It is indeed believable that the rest of the filming of the upcoming season of Stranger Things is once again taking place in Georgia, Atlanta. You will get to see multiple locations of Georgia in the upcoming season where the team has shot before. It will be possible for you to find an entire list of all the known locations of Georgia where Stranger Things has been filmed.

That is the reason why we are suggesting you should not believe anything unless there is some proof. It is sure that there will be many locations that you are going to witness in Stranger Things Season 4.

We also did get the confirmation that the series will again head to the Hawkins high school and arcade, as you can remember from the second season. The series is indeed going to bring a lot of excitement as well as entertainment to the fans. 

Will Season 4 of Stranger Things be the last Season?

There are so many things that are still what we can say is uncertain when we are talking about the upcoming 4th Season of Stranger Things. Most fans and viewers are currently wondering whether the next season will be the last season of the series or not. It is sure that looking beyond the fourth season of Stranger Things is not easy as no one has any clue about where the story is heading.


However, you will get a little bit of a clear idea from having a look at what Shawn Levy is informing about the future of the Stranger Things series. 

Shawn says, “I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in season 4. Season 4 is definitely happening. There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one, that’s currently undecided.

And what I would just say is part of the chaos and fun of this particular show is that while the Duffers and the writer’s room and we producers outline the entire season, the Duffers really use the writing process to revisit, reassess and question all of their prior assumptions. So even though we always start off with a good sense of the major arcs of the season. 

We’re always ready for shifts and surprises because if the Duffers stumble into a different or surprising inspiration while they rewrite the script, we’re going to follow that inspiration and throw out some ideas in order to embrace some new ones that are more exciting. And I have no doubt that season 3 will be no exception.”

Duffer Brothers speaks their own views

Duffer Brothers are trying their best to maintain a balance between not ruining the anticipation that has created among the fans and answering about whether there will be the fifth season of Stranger Things or not.

But you will be a little surprised to know that even Duffer Brothers are not certain where they stand on the 5th Season of Stranger Things. You need to have a look at what the Duffer Brothers have to say while answering a question in an interview with Enews. 

Ross says, “We don’t actually know. I think, you know, four to five seasons is likely where we’ll end up, but who knows? I mean, none of this official, and we know where we want to go. We’re trying to figure out still how long it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.” 

While Matt presents his own views saying, “It’s hard, like four seems short, five seems long. So I don’t know what to do.”

That is the reason why most fans are uncertain and wondering if they will be able to witness the fifth season of Stranger Things or they will have to believe that the fourth season is the last one in the series.

It is sure that there are so many viewers and series lovers who are still wondering about the upcoming season. There is a large number of fans who did manage to make hundreds of theories of what the next season will be about. But as you all know, nothing is certain currently. The only thing that you all can do right now is wait for the fourth season of Stranger Things to premiere.

What can we expect from Stranger Things Season 4?

There are so many things that fans are expecting to watch in the upcoming season of Stranger Things. It is sure that all the fans and viewers did find the previous season so much interesting and exciting. It will be possible that all the loose hands that we have right now will tie up in the next part of the series.

One thing is sure that if you did manage to watch Stranger Things Season 3. Then you will know that there are plenty of things for which you are curious to know about. We are sure that the fourth and upcoming season of Stranger Things will be bringing it. Those are all the answers that will take on the story plot from where it left in the previous part. Some of the things that fans can expect Stranger Things Season 4 to unveil are as follows.

The American

After Netflix did release the official teaser for Stranger Things Season 4, there are so many curious fans. They got their answers. But now, they all are wondering about how Hopper managed to survive. It is sure that we all did not see the body of Hopper get disintegrated by the power outburst. That did happen from the Russian machine.

Most fans are currently assuming that Hopper may have used the opening between worlds. That is in order to transport from Hawkins to Kamchatka. So Russians are able to catch Hopper after he goes in Upside Down. 

It is sure that Hopper can use Upside Down to get back to Hawkins. But there are possibilities for the Demogorgon. That is to be a part of Hopper’s escape from the Russian machine. Therefore it will be interesting to watch how Hopper will escape and return to Hawkins. 

Will Byers and Eleven return to Hawkins?

As you all know, Eleven has moved to pastures new along with Byers. It is after saying a tearful goodbye to friends and Hawkins. It is sure that Mike will go to Byer’s place for Thanksgiving. While El asks Joyce if she can stay at Mike’s for Christmas.

You can expect that the next season will be involving Christmas time. So it will be easy for writers to bring on characters during this time in Hawkins. Also, you all must know that when everyone gathers around, it will double the trouble. But it is sure that all the viewers and series lovers are going to get a lot of excitement and fun. 

Byers and Eleven have surely been the favorite characters of millions of Stranger Things fans. They both have a huge fan following and the audience loves them to watch on Netflix. It will be amazing to watch them both when or if they are going to return to Hawkins.

There may be Jonathan’s return that you will get to see in the next part of the series. And, he will coincide with his relationship with Nancy Wheeler. Undoubtedly, Joyce will stay by El and Will’s side in order to ensure their safety. 

Possibility of Russians taming a Demogorgon

The most thrilling twist that we all have seen in the final episode of the previous season. It is that the Demogorgon has been captured by Russians. You must know that Russians are taming the Demogorgon as a Demodog. While provoking the true form of the creature.

In the fourth season, it will be possible for the viewers to see Russians plan to become a success. That is to open a portal to the Upside Down in Kamchatka. 

You must know that the Hawkins base was shut down completely. While the Kamchatkan base is now fully functional in the next part of the Stranger Things series. The machine may possibly provide access for the Upside Down to Russians.

But it is uncertain currently how Russians managed to capture a Demogorgon. You can give a thought to the possibility that they may have found the spawn. That is similar to Dustin’s pet, D’Artagnan that we have seen in the second season. 

Some fans believe the possibility that Demodogs is the growing stage of Demogorgon. But it is sure that the creatures, no matter how small they are. They can form bonds and connect to the Upside Down.

Therefore it is possible that if Russians did manage to raise the Demogorgon from its birth or juvenile state. Then they were able to tame the creature and bring it to its true form. You must know that the Demogorgon is capable enough to go inside and outside of the Upside Down. But that will lead fans to wonder why Demogorgon will wish to stay in the captivation of Russians. 

Whatever the upcoming season of Stranger Things will serve its audience, it will definitely be exciting. Also, it will be interesting as well as breathtaking. All the fans and series lovers are hoping for Stranger Things Season 4. That is to schedule the release date as soon as possible. It is sure that all of you will be waiting for the premiere of the next season. That is with bated breath while looking out for updates.

The upcoming season of Stranger Things will surely be a lot of fun and excitement. You will feel the thrill and probably get goosebumps. That is only when you will watch the next part of the Stranger Things series.
