There is no release date on the books for season four of “Stranger Things.”

Millions of fans around the globe have been eagerly waiting for news about the new season on Netflix, and it doesn’t sound like we’ll get more episodes anytime soon. However, the coronavirus pandemic might ultimately be a positive for season four, according to producer Shawn Levy.

Levy told Collider the following during a recent interview:

I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD. But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever.

Honestly, we’ve waited so long at this point for season four, that I don’t actually mind waiting a bit longer if the quality is off the charts.

If the Duffy brothers are going to knock things out of the park even more in season four, then fans are in for an absolutely absurd time.

The first three seasons were all excellent. Is it possible to top that? It’s going to be damn hard, but it sounds like the people involved are confident.

That’s more than enough reason to get me excited. Who would have guessed that the coronavirus pandemic would actually improve “Stranger Things” in the fourth season? Not me!

Hopefully, season four gets here by this upcoming summer. If it does and it’s great, then I’ll accept the delay!
