New Mexico: New filming location

New Mexico has a very specific connection with Stranger Things season 4 in that some of the season will be filmed there if it hasn’t been already. Whether this is because New Mexico has some great locations to film in or because it’s going to be Netflix’s new production hub is anyone’s guess.

Earlier this year, the show put out a casting call for extras in the Land of Enchantment but the filming will take place specifically in Albuquerque. That being said, now that the show is back to filming, they aren’t bringing on as many extras and background actors due to the pandemic and wanting to keep everyone as safe as possible.

It’s also not known how much of the show will be shot in New Mexico, but according to Deadline, it should be a “significant” amount. It will be interesting to see if that changes the look of the show in any way or if they’re just using sound stages in New Mexico instead of the ones in Georgia.

Maybe the town Joyce moved Eleven, Jonathan, and Will to will take place on a set in New Mexico and that’s why they made the move. We’ll all have to wait for season 4 to come out to get our answers.
