Stranger Things Season 4 should “hopefully” be out next year according to star Finn Wolfhard. Filming of the next installment in the popular Netflix series has been delayed due to the pandemic and Season 3 came out in 2019, which will mark around two years between seasons. There was a similar gap between Season 2 and 3, so this isn’t totally uncalled for.
However, the news does come with a caveat due to the pandemic. “There are very few dates that are reliable,” Wolfhard told a fan via Fanmio video call. “[With the COVID-19 pandemic], we still don’t know day-to-day if we’re gonna be filming next week … There’s really no way to figure out when we’re gonna be wrapping.”
