Stranger Things Season 4: Production Details
Stranger Things was ahead of their schedule when they started filming for season 4. They began filming Stranger Things Season 4 earlier this year on January 7, 2020, which was supposed to wrap up on August 5, 2020. However, with the spread of this deadly coronavirus, the production was put on hold. It was only a month into filming the fourth season when this delay occurred. In an interview, the series star Fin Wolfhard confirmed they were ahead of their schedule this time. However, the sudden hold on production has messed up everything.
Wolfhard said: “It was perfect. We were first time ahead of schedule, which has never happened before because there’s never a realistic approach to scheduling, and then it just stopped, and everyone had to go home, and everyone’s just so sad.”
Scripting Completed And Team Is Set To Return
While the current health crisis holds physical production, the series writers team are still working remotely on the script. Recently, the writer’s group has officially announced that they have completed the season 4 script. So the only thing left is filming.

Joel Stoffer With Other Guest Stars Joining The Show
In an interview, Joel Stoffer revealed that he’s joining the series in the fourth season. However, he exclaimed that his role wouldn’t be that big. It would be a short term role. But, he’s excited to play that part. At present, we don’t know what character he would portray (a good guy or a bad one). But whenever they would start shooting, he’s all set to be there.
Joel stated: “I don’t expect it to become anything like long term, but it’ll be coming up.” He added: “They contact me and I’ll go Georgia, to Atlanta. And shoot it whenever they get back up and running. Cause they’ve been shut down for a while. They haven’t formed their schedule yet.”
Further, Showrunners Ross and Matt Duffer teased that the upcoming season will have more guest stars. However, they only revealed about Joel Stoffer. The rest of the guest stars have yet to announce. So, let’s just wait to know who will be joining the series now, and what new twist these new star cast will bring now.
