Stranger Things boss Shawn Levy has given us hope that we could be going back to the Upside Down for season 4 very soon.
Speaking to Variety, Levy said: “To state the incredibly obvious, it’s been way, way, way, way too long, and it’s coming.”
He went on to explain that although the Covid-19 pandemic meant the season was delayed, it’s also the show’s most ambitious yet, which takes time.
“I shot in Lithuania right before the pandemic,” he said. “We have filmed in Georgia, Lithuania and New Mexico, so suffice to say season four is sprawling.
“It’s visually and narratively very ambitious, much more ambitious than the prior three seasons.
“The delay is due in large measure to COVID and the pace at which we have to work to do so safely, but it also happens to be the season that we chose to go much bigger. It’s the scale of this season and the multi-settings of season four.”
Levy then further teased: “It’s coming soon enough. And as for when exactly that will be announced – quite soon.”
Recently, Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas Sinclair, teased that season four is going to be “insane”.
“I’m really excited for everyone to see the season. It’s definitely different from the last couple of seasons. Storylines are insane,” he said. “It’s going to be really exciting to see what people think about this.
“While I’m talking about this, I’m thinking about what we’ve been filming and I’m just like, ‘Wow. No one knows what is to come.’ It’s insane.”
