Postponed because of the health crisis, season 4 of Stranger Things is long overdue on Netflix. But producer Shawn Levy is teasing an air date announcement very soon.
“It happens”. Producer Shawn Levy attempted to address the impatience of Stranger Things fans during an interview about Season 4 at Variety. Postponed due to the pandemic, the fourth round of episodes of the Duffer brothers series is still in production and should not land on Netflix until 2022.
But Shawn Levy said the health crisis is not the only reason for the delay in this chapter, which is expected to be even more intense than the previous ones: “The delay is in large part due to COVID and the pace at which we have to work to do it safely. But it also happens to be this season that we have decided to put the cursor even higher. This season. has more scope and locations. “
Indeed, the producer recalls that the teams have toured in Lithuania, Georgia and New Mexico. The characters will meet in different places in season 4 since at the end of season 3, the gang split with the departure of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) from Hawkins, and a first teaser of season 4 revealed that Jim Hopper (David Harbor) was not dead and had landed in Russia.
This season 4, which Shawn Levy considers to be “very ambitious visually and narratively, much more ambitious than the three previous seasons”, should happen “well enough early”. The producer explains that it will in any case be announced “very soon”.
Can we then hope for a broadcast at the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022? We will have to wait for an official announcement from Netflix, which has already unveiled a teaser (a flashback?) In which Eleven is in the basement of Hawkins’ laboratory with Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine).
Note that season 4 of Stranger Things welcomes many new faces: Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), Jamie Campbell Bower (Twilight), Mason Dye (Teen Wolf), Robert Englund, legendary Freddy Krueger, Amybeth McNulty (Anne with an E), Myles Truitt (Black Lightning), Regina Ting Chen (Queen of the South) and Grace Van Dien (The Binge).
