Stranger Things is one of the most popular series on Netflix. The season 4 of the show is currently in production in the Atlanta, Georgia area. As per the new reports, the filming is taking too long and we might have to wait till 2022 for the release of Season 4.
Though it is just a rumor and nothing official has been confirmed by Netflix. The makers released a teaser last year with a potential release in 2021. But things have changed drastically since then.
Production on Stranger Things season 4 started almost a year ago in Lithuania, where the crew filmed for about two weeks. After wrapping up, the crew moved production back to Atlanta, GA. Unfortunately the production was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production did not start again until mid-January 2021.
Over the past few weeks we have heard many rumors regarding release date of Stranger Things season 4. According to Sherman Augustus, a new cast member, filming could last until August 2021 but believes we would see season 4 in 2021.

It has been around a month since the filming began again. Filming takes a total of about seven months to complete according to Collider. Last season, Stranger Things partnered with companies like NIKE and Levi’s as a marketing strategy for season 3. It means that the marketing will also take a good chunk of time.
So if we take seven months of filming plus two months for post-production and one month for promotion, we will have to wait approx 10 months for season 4. If we take that timeline, the filming should wrap in the early summer. This would mean that season 4 will probably release in late 2021 or early 2022.
But in recent scenario of pandemic, we are not sure if the filming would go smoothly. However if the filming goes as per planned, then we might see season 4 in late 2021. Otherwise it would not be a surprise if seasos 4 arrives in early 2022.
Stay tuned for more updates on Stranger Things season 4.
