Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date
As we mentioned earlier, Netflix renewed the show for a fourth season back in Sep 2019. Even after sixteen months of the announcement, there is no official update on the release date.
However, the creator of the show, Duffer Brothers have previously mentioned that the show is likely to end after its fourth and fifth season.
Originally, the makers were planning to release the fourth season of Stranger Things in 2020 but that didn’t happen all thanks to the pandemic.

In an Instagram Q&A back in March 2020, David Harbour stated that he thought new episodes were “supposed to come out early next year” (although he admitted he didn’t have “authority” on that).
In late October, Natalia Dyer (Nancy) told The Independent that it’s going to be “a while” before we see anything new.
Some reports claim that season 4 will premiere in Aug 2021. However, this date also looks tentative as the filming hasn’t wrapped up yet. So, our best bet would be the last quarter of 2021 or early 2022.
Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer
The trailer is not out yet but the announcement of another season was made on September 30, 2019, just two months after the premiere of season three. The announcement was made through a video which dropped on the show’s official Twitter handle first with the caption “We’re not in Hawkins anymore”.
On February 14, 2020, as a welcome gift on valentine’s day, Netflix dropped a teaser of season 4 with the caption “From Russia with love” where Hopper can be seen as working for the Russians. However, fans were pleased to see Hopper alive.

Stranger Things Season 4 Plot
In the climax of season 3, we saw Hopper being trapped or dead in an experimental cell and we also saw Eleven moves out with Joyce to live with her as Hopper being dead there was no one to look after Eleven. Season 3 ends on a tragic note. However, after the release of the season 4 teaser, we saw Hopper being alive and working with the Russians. In this upcoming season, we can expect Hopper to unveil some dark truths about the secret experiments of Russians and we can expect kids moving out of Hawkins to solve the ongoing mystery. A number of fans theories are out on Reddit. You can read it right here.
What’s the production status?
Filming for the fourth season started in Jan 2020. It was scheduled to wrap up in Aug 2020. As everyone knows, Netflix put all its movies and shows to a halt in March 2020 due to the pandemic. Filming resumed in October 2020 and is still going on with all safety protocols in place.
