Is Stranger Things season 4 being filmed?

We were hoping to see the cast and crew resume production on Stranger Things season 4 this week, but we haven’t seen or heard any updates from the cast to confirm the restart for filming in Atlanta.

The show has not started filming again yet. The show was about a month into production when Netflix shut down filming because of the spread of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, the little tidbits of news we’ve heard and read about the start of production actually point more in the direction of Stranger Things season 4 not resuming production in the near future.

Stranger Things season 4 was going to start filming this week

It was reported back in July that the cast and crew were eyeing a restart date of Sept. 17, 2020, which happens to be this Thursday.

In a recent interview, Maya Hawke, who stars as Robin Buckley, said that the restart date was looking promising but seemed to imply that was not the case anymore.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Caleb McLaughlin said that he wasn’t sure when production was going to start and that it could be “next year” before they start filming again.

Well, that’s not good news.

Along with that, David Harbour, who stars as Jim Hopper, and Lily Allen were married in Las Vegas, Nevada recently.

If production was starting soon, you’d imagine Harbour would be in Atlanta quarantining before the start of production like the Riverdale cast had to do. It’s possible, though, that was just a Canadian restriction since that’s where Riverdale is filmed. Stranger Things films in Atlanta, and maybe they will not be doing a two-week quarantine before the start of production.

It isn’t all bad news, though. Red Notice, a new Netflix movie starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson, resumed production recently in Atlanta. That seems to indicate that there is a way to start production again in Georgia.

Ozark, another popular Netflix show, is planning to start filming in Georgia later this year, as well. That could be another good sign that production on season 4 will be starting soon.

There are so many factors to consider, including cast and crew size, when making the decisions to start production again and how to keep all those people healthy and safe.

We’ll let you know when Stranger Things season 4 resumes production. Hopefully, we learn more in the near future. The sooner the season starts filming, the sooner we’ll see the season on Netflix.
