Stranger Things 4 is scheduled to start production next month in January 2020. There will be eight episodes in the new season.
Stranger Things 4 starts production next month!
According to a recent report from TV Line, the cast and crew of the hit Netflix original series begin filming the fourth season in January 2020.
We still don’t know the exact date filming begins for Stranger Things 4. It could be at any time throughout the month. The sooner they get started filming, the sooner they’ll be done, and, obviously, the sooner we get to watch the new season. With that said, hopefully, they start filming the new season early in the month.
According to the report, production is scheduled to last about seven or eight months through August 2020.
These dates, as far as we know, have not been confirmed by Stranger Things or Netflix. TV Line was the first to report the production timeline for the new season. It’s very much in line with the duration of filming the previous seasons. The report also announced the fourth season will consist of eight episodes, like the first and third seasons. The second season, on the other hand, consisted of nine episodes.
Because the season is scheduled to wrap production so late in 2020, a release date for next year is already in question. Generally, we’ve had to wait about six months (or more) from the end of production to the release date of the next season. If that’s the case for the new season, it’s much more likely Stranger Things 4 will be released in the spring of 2021, but that has not been confirmed by Netflix.
There are many rumors swirling around about the Stranger Things 4 filming locations. The first three seasons have been filmed in Atlanta, and most of Stranger Things 4 will also be filmed there as well, according to a report from Deadline.
At the end of Stranger Things 3, the Byers plus Eleven left Hawkins and moved somewhere else. We don’t know where they moved, but that location could impact where the fourth season is filmed, especially if they need a different look than the area around Atlanta.
It also sounds like many of the young heroes will be traveling somewhere new in the upcoming season. Maybe it’s just to Will and Eleven’s new home. Maybe it will be somewhere else. We have no idea yet!
