Frankly, it’s taken a yr and a half between every season up to now which means for the time being, our finest guess is that Stranger Issues season Four shall be on Netflix for Christmas 2020.
Filming Dates for Stranger Issues season 4
Due to our supply, we all know that filming for Stranger Issues season Four is ready to kick off on January seventh, 2020. We additionally know that filming is scheduled to finish on August fifth, 2020.
Filming will as soon as once more completely happen in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. As well as, we all know that the sequence is being filmed underneath the working title of “TARECO”. A Tareco is a Brazilian biscuit that originates from the Northeast area.
Is season Four the final season of Stranger Issues?
Trying past season Four for Stranger Issues is troublesome notably as we don’t understand how the story will wrap up in season Four but. Shawn Levy, nevertheless, did communicate just lately about the way forward for the present saying:
“I imply I’ll say now we have an excellent sense of stuff that occurs in season 4. Season 4 is unquestionably occurring. There’s very a lot the potential of a season past that one, that’s at present undecided. And what I might simply say is a part of the chaos and enjoyable of this explicit present is that whereas the Duffers and the author’s room and we producers define the complete season, the Duffers actually use the writing course of to revisit, reassess and query all of their prior assumptions.
So though we all the time begin off with an excellent sense of the main arcs of the season. We’re all the time prepared for shifts and surprises as a result of if the Duffers stumble into a distinct or stunning inspiration whereas they rewrite the script, we’re going to comply with that inspiration and throw out some concepts in an effort to embrace some new ones which are extra thrilling. And I’ve little doubt that season Three shall be no exception.”
What do the Duffer Brothers should say?
However from what was mentioned it’s nonetheless unclear on whether or not or not a fifth season is occurring. Even the Duffer Brothers are unsure about the place they stand on a fifth season. In an interview with Enews, the Brothers had the next to say:
“We don’t truly know. I feel, , 4 to 5 seasons is probably going the place we’ll find yourself, however who is aware of? I imply, none of this official, and we all know the place we wish to go. We’re attempting to determine nonetheless how lengthy it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.”
“It’s exhausting, like 4 appears quick, 5 appears lengthy. So I don’t know what to do.”
We do, nevertheless, have extra to stay up for from The Duffer Brothers and certainly Shawn Levy who all have unique output offers with Netflix over the following few years.

What can we anticipate from Stranger Issues season 4?
Season Three left us with loads to ponder for subsequent season. We will anticipate among the following to be revealed.
Who’s “The American?”
The obvious reply to this query is clearly Jim Hopper. We by no means noticed Hopper’s physique disintegrated by the outburst of energy from the Russian’s machine however we have been left to imagine the more severe. Within the last scene, we reduce to the Russian base in Kamchatka the place the opposite machine was situated. Two guards revealed that an American was a prisoner inside the bottom.
The one logical conclusion is the American is Hopper and he will need to have been teleported between Hawkins and Kamchatka by the machines the Russians have been utilizing to drive open the Upside Down. Alternatively, he might have been despatched into the Upside Down just for the Kamchatka Russians to search out him thus capturing him.
As to how Hopper escapes his cell is anybody’s guess. However he’ll possible be capable to escape the ability itself by utilizing the machine to ship him again to Hawkins. If the machine can’t ship him again to Hawkins straight then he might haven’t any selection however to enter the Upside Down and attempt to make his manner dwelling from there.
Are the Byers and Eleven going to return to Hawkins?
After the tearful goodbye to their pals and Hawkins, the Byers and Eleven have moved away to pastures new. Earlier than leaving Mike and Eleven have made it clear they’ll be speaking to and visiting as usually as they will. Mike will go to the Byers place for Thanksgiving, and Eleven will ask Joyce if she will keep at Mike’s for Christmas.
It’s our hope the following season shall be based mostly at Christmas, which might give writers a straightforward motive to jot down characters to be in Hawkins on the similar time. Regardless, characters equivalent to Eleven and Will are vital to the story due to their connection to the Upside Down.
Jonathan’s return to Hawkins would coincide along with his relationship with Nancy Wheeler. As for Joyce, she’d possible tag alongside simply to verify Will and Eleven are protected.
How will the Mindflayer return?
If anybody thought the Mindflayer was destroyed is unfortunately mistaken. The creature seen all through the third season was a conduit utilized by the Mindflayer and never the Mindflayer itself. With the connection between the Upside Down and our world shut, the conduit physique misplaced its “sign” to the Midnlfayer thus the physique was destroyed.
The Mindflayer is protected and sound within the Upside Down however is trapped for now. He’ll positively be returning with a vengeance and can possible look to enact his revenge in town of Hawkins after being thwarted twice.
As to how he returns shall be very attention-grabbing. The previous two events when he’s possessed people has not gone to plan. Arguably possessing one of many Russians can be a much better possibility than a teen from Hawkins.
Have the Russians tamed a Demogorgon?
The large reveal on the finish of the fourth season was proven to be a Demogorgon had been captured by the Russians. At first, it appeared the Russians had discovered a Demodog till it stood on its hind legs revealing the true type of the creature.
The Russians plan to tear open a portal to the Upside Down in Kamchatka will need to have been successful. Whereas the ability in Hawkins was shut down, the Kamchatkan base continues to be absolutely useful. Given time to excellent the analysis, the machine might now give the Russians entry to Upside Down as and after they please.
How they got here to seize a Demogorgon is unclear however maybe they have been capable of finding one of many spawns just like Dustin’s pet D’Artagan in season 2. This is able to give pause to motive that the Demodogs are in reality the juvenile or pet stage of the Demogorgon.
Dustin’s connection to D’Artagan additionally offers us motive to imagine that creatures from the Upside Down can type bonds, nevertheless small. So if the Russians raised this explicit Demogorgon from delivery/spawn, then possibly they have been capable of tame the monster. Or of least the Demogorgon likes to be fed frequently and the Russians can research the creature. Additionally, the Demogorgon has the flexibility to go out and in of the Upside Down, which leads us to marvel why it willingly would keep in a cage.
Extra experiments to look?
Within the second season, we realized that Eleven wasn’t the one experiment to flee the Division of Power. Eight was additionally capable of escape and he or she made it her mission to take down the individuals associated to the experiments. Like Eleven, Eight additionally exhibited powers of her personal. As a substitute of telekinetic skills like Eleven’s, Eight may solid illusions, change into invisible by means of her illusions and likewise clairvoyance.
We didn’t see any additional experiments in season Three however director Shawn Levy closely hinted we may see extra sooner or later:
“I feel we’ve clearly implied there are different numbers, and I can’t think about that the world will solely ever know Eleven and Eight”
Whereas it actually was the weakest story of season 2, if executed proper it could be nice to discover extra on the experiments by the DoE. With the DoE shut down at Hawkins it could be intriguing to see how they might introduce extra experiments. One or two may make glorious protagonists, giving Eleven considered one of her hardest challenges but. Alternatively, they could possibly be launched to assist fight the Upside Down.
The place to look at Stranger Issues solid members till Stranger Issues season 4
After checking what the solid members are as much as proper now by means of IMDb, some are at present concerned in initiatives outdoors of Netflix.
