When will “Stranger Things” season four arrive on Netflix?
This is a question I’ve found myself debating a bit as we yearn for more content during the coronavirus pandemic. The sci-fi coming-of-age drama from the streaming giant has captivated the country, and now we wait for another season to come out.

Let’s start with what we know for sure. Season four is coming. This has been known for a long time, and isn’t an update at all.
Not only do we know season four is happening, but a promo for it seems to hint fans won’t be in Hawkins anymore.

Secondly, we know some amount of filming has been done. How do we know this to be true? Because a short promo featured a very prominent character in a different country.

Yet we don’t know the release date. Seasons one and three were released in the summer. Season two arrived in the fall.
So, it would seem to be likely that the initial plan for Netflix was for the summer 2020 or in the fall of 2020.
However, that’s not going to happen. Certainly summer 2020 is off the table. According to Pop Culture Times, filming has been halted because of the pandemic.
Unfortunately, I have a feeling that even fall 2020 is probably no longer a realistic option. There’s no shot cameras are rolling again soon enough to have episodes for fans by October.
So, what does that mean? Well, it doesn’t mean anything good. That much is for sure.

At this point, I’d be shocked if “Stranger Things” came out prior to spring 2021. I could be 100% incorrect, and I hope that I am.
However, I’m not overly optimistic. If filming is done by the end of 2020, we’ll get it no later than summer 2021. If not by then, I honestly just don’t know.
Hopefully we get some clarity on the situation sooner than later. I think I speak for everyone when I say we want the show back!
