When did Stranger Things season 4 get renewed and when will it release?
Official renewal status: Renewed on September 30th, 2019.
After a few days worth of teasing leading up to September 30th, 2019 Netflix finally confirmed that Stranger Things would be returning for a fourth season.
In addition, Netflix has signed a multi-year deal with The Duffer Brothers. This deal is on top of the one Netflix already has with Shawn Levy who is a producer on the show.
The announcement of season 4 came accompanied by a video that had the caption: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore”.
Despite a 2021 date thrown around the most, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see season 4 arrive this year. Instead, Finn Wolfhard signaled in a fan video that the show should “hopefully” return “next year” meaning 2022.
This 2022 release date will be disappointing to many, however, with significant production delays it’s was somewhat inevitable.
Netflix has begun to release teaser trailers for Stranger Things season 4.
Thanks to the description of the videos it heavily suggests that of least two more teasers or trailers are yet to be released. The most recent was listed as 002/004.

For the first time in the show’s history, some of the production would took place outside of Atlanta.
As we learned from the teaser trailer, the team behind Stranger Things had begun filming extensively in Vilnius, Lithuania at an unknown date. Alongside set pictures, Movieweb announced they had wrapped filming at that location in February 2020.
The main bulk of the filming for Stranger Things season 4 was originally supposed to begin on January 7th, 2020. We also learned that filming was originally scheduled to conclude by August 5th, 2020.
Of course, that was put to a halt when filming was put on hold as of March 2020 due to COVID-19. It’s believed that the series was two episodes into filming before production was halted.
By mid-June 2020, we got confirmation that the entire script had been completed for Stranger Things season 4.
