Fans were seemingly brought to the “upside down” when their favorite sci-fi horror series paused production early this year. Stranger Things first started filming for season 4 last February when it was halted by the coronavirus outbreak in March. Finally, months after shooting was suspended, the series is officially back in action.
The show announced filming resumption through an image post on its official Twitter account. The tweet reads, “meanwhile in the upside down…” alongside a photo of a clapperboard and a clock.
Consequently, the official account of the show’s writers replied, “Ummmmmmmmm………. are you tellin me what I think you’re tellin me?”
Responding with “Absolutely correct” to the said remark, the account just confirmed the exciting news.
The time away from filming also paved the way for writers to finish writing the entire scripts for season 4. In a tweet dated back in June, they shared a photo hinting its completion.
Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date and Trailer
Creators of the series, Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed in February that Stranger Things would return for a fourth season. “We’re excited to officially confirm that production on ‘Stranger Things 4’ is now underway — and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper.”
They further revealed more details about him saying, “Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American’; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything…”
A release date for the latest installment is still unavailable. However, the Duffer brothers said fans can expect season 4 to be the “biggest and most frightening season yet.”
The show also released a teaser trailer last February 14. It showed the series’ storyline expanding outside of Hawkins and into Russia. In another twist, David Harbour returns as Hopper despite indications that he died at the end of season 3.
