Stranger Things Season 4: Renewal Status
After months of speculation, Netflix finally confirmed Stranger Things 4 with the release of a teaser. The teaser showed the number four in the iconic neon lettering, which was placed upside down.
The filming for the fourth season began in February 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Netflix production, including Stranger Things were forced to stop in March 2020.
Stranger Things Season 4: Release Date
The release date of the fourth season hasn’t been revealed yet. Amidst the nationwide shutdown, there’s been good news coming as the creators are planning to restart the productions from September. It is right now difficult to say as to when it will release, but we can expect it by July or August 2021.
All of the episodes have been already written and this news was shared by the series’ creator on Twitter. Stranger Things Season 4 will consist of nine episodes. The first episode is titled “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club”. So fans can be assured that an exciting season is on its way.

Stranger Things Season 4: Plot
The Difference Brothers have revealed that they want to take the story beyond Hawkins for season 4. The fourth season will explore what was revealed in the season 3 post-credit sequence. For instance, what the Russians are doing with a Demogorgon, the identity of ‘the American’ in the cell.
We can also see another dramatic arc for Lucas, such as his pivotal use of the slingshot and his relationship with Max (Sadie Sink) evolving.
The biggest revelation made in the teaser was Hopper being alive. But he isn’t completely safe as he was shown with other prisoners under the strict watch of armed guards. So Hopper will likely face more danger in the upcoming season.
