The strategic dates Netflix chooses to release Stranger Things Seasons
Netflix and the Makers of Stranger Things had always been very strategic and creative with the release date of the Show. We have observed a pattern during the release of the past three seasons.
Releasing the Seasons During Holidays or Festive Season:
All the past Seasons of Stranger Things had released during Halloween Festival or Summer Vacations.
- Stranger Things Season 1 – Premiered on July 15, 2016.
- Stranger Things Season 2 – Premiered on October 27, 2017.
- Stranger Things Season 3 – Premiered on July 4, 2019.
Stranger Things Season 1 and 3 premiered during the Summer Vacations, while, Stranger Things Season 2 premiered during Halloweens. These release dates can be seen as a strategy to gain the greatest amount of viewership from the targeted audience of the show i.e. Kids and Teenagers. And thus, we can expect the same strategy with the release date of Stranger Things Season 4.
Release Date Mirroring the Events and Timeline of the Show:
Another Pattern we have observed with the release date of Stranger Things Season 2 and 3 is the premier of seasons being during the same months as the events in the show’s timeline.
The Events in Season 2 takes place during the month of October, around the festival of Halloween. The respective season also premiered during the last week of October 2017 i.e. Halloween week.
Similarly, in Season 3 of the show, we saw all the events taking place during the Vacations of the school in Hawkins. The setting was also of the Summer Season. And the Season 3 premiered during the month of July i.e. Summer Vacations.
Either it was a coincidence both the times, or we have to admit the maker of the show are grossly smart and creative. However, the First Season of the show didn’t mirror the timeline of the Show. Will Byres in Stranger Things 1 went missing around the month of November, and the show aired during July. But we can still expect the makers to pull off another stunt with the release of Stranger Things 4, by mirroring the premier date with that of the events in the Show.
What release date can we expect for Stranger Things Season 4?
It’s tough to predict the exact date for the premiere of Stranger Things 4, as there are numerous factors playing around dodging our reasoning. But keeping the various above factors in mind, we can guess a couple of possible release dates for Stranger Things 4.
Stranger Things 4 Premiere Date – Between Oct to Dec 2020
The makers are very likely to follow the pattern of releasing New Season during the Winters, either around Halloween or Christmas. As following the alternate release pattern and keeping in mind that the events of Stranger Things 3 took place in Summer of 1985, we can expect the next setting in the Show around Winter, and that increases the possibility of Winter release of the show.
Stranger Things 4 Premiere Date – During July 2021
According to the intel, the filming of Stranger Things 4 is far from over yet. The makers have released the teaser recently i.e. Feb 2020. Thus, it no how seems possible for the makers to release the show in the summer of 2020, and the Winter 2020 release seems doubtful too.
Also, the makers in the past have repeatedly skipped a year or two in the show’s timeline, and the release of the show in our world. Thus, following both the patterns, it’s possible that Netflix will make us wait another year before releasing Season 4.
Stranger Things Premiere Date – April 2021 – Chernobyl Disaster (April 1986)
There are theories hovering over the town, suspecting the next big event in Stranger Things being the real-world Chernobyl Disaster. The show moving to Russia in the latest season; the timelines of Season 3 being 1985, just a year before Chernobyl Disaster, concretes these theories. It’s theorised that, in the show, the real-world Chernobyl Disaster will be shown as a coverup to a disastrous experiment related to Upside Down.
Although it’ll take some serious guts for the makers to go that way, if they still do, it’ll be fireworks all around. Keeping this theory in mind and the pattern of mirroring Show’s event and timeline with the real-world premiere date, we can predict the Stranger Things Season 4 releasing around April 2021.
What do you think? Which among these possible Stranger Things 4 premiere dates will the makers choose this time? Do you think there could be another release date for the Season 4? Do let us know in the comments below.
