The world of Stranger Things has turned upside down – The reason is Coronavirus not Mind Flayer.
- Netflix halts Stranger Things 4 shooting amid Coronavirus concerns
- Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 premiere to be postponed due to Coronavirus?
- Stranger Things 4 expected to release during July 2021
In all the previous seasons of Netflix’s Stranger Things, the characters fought the ghastly monster Mind Flayer. But this time, the threat is real and from the external world for the Season 4 of Stranger Things. We’ll need to wait and see how Netflix’s Stranger Things will fight with Coronavirus outbreak.
After a long wait, Netflix dropped a teaser for Stranger Things 4 last month, which gave all the Stranger Things fans a degree of relief. We finally knew that Stranger Things 4 will be coming and that the shooting has started for the show. Everything seemed going just as good as it could go. The cast was all up for the schedules. There was intensive casting going for a dozen of new characters in the show. And we all finally knew that Chief Jim Hopper, portrayed by David Harbour, was alive.
But as we say, nothing goes normal for Stranger Things. Now the Season 4 of Stranger Things has been kept on hold. Yes, it’s being done due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We don’t know how Stranger Things 4 will fight this Coronavirus concern to be back on track.
Netflix halts Stranger Things 4 shooting amid Coronavirus concerns
The latest update on Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 confirms that Netflix has halted the production of its sensational show. As stated by the studio, “due to government restrictions and health/safety precautions”, they have shut down the production and shooting of Stranger Things 4 for two weeks. However, Netflix hasn’t only done this for Stranger Things, but all of Netflix’s produced shows that are underworks in the US and Canada has been halted for at least two weeks.
Witcher Season 2 that was being filmed in the UK has also been taken off from the production currently due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Now with Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 and other shows being halted due to Coronavirus threats, fans are wondering what will their content calendar look like.
Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 premier to be postpended due to Coronavirus?
As Netflix has halted the shooting of Stranger Things 4 amid Coronavirus, fans are curious to know what will be the show’s release date now. Though the shutdown is temporary and for only two weeks, hopefully, but if in case it drags for longer, then it might delay the show’s release. No one knows for how long Coronavirus will remain a threat for public health, if it drags for a longer duration, the production halt of two weeks is surely going to get longer.
However, Netflix didn’t announce a date to release Stranger Things 4, and they don’t usually announce a release date for their shows up until a month or two before release. In that case, Netflix will have a lot of flexibility to stretch the release date of Stranger Things 4 due to the increasing threat of Coronavirus.
Stranger Things 4 expected to release during July 2021
Stranger Things Season 4 is expected to premiere in 2021. As the show has recently gone into production, the possibilities of the year 2020 release are nil. Though Netflix hasn’t revealed a release date for Stranger Things 4, we predicted it to be either July 2021 or April 2021.
Our predictions were based on the pattern and facts regarding the release of the previous three seasons of Stranger Things. We know that Netflix has shut down the production of Stranger Things 4 due to Coronavirus outbreak, but we are sure Stranger Things 4 will seek a way to fight it and be ready for us by mid-2021.
We wish we could call Eleven, Hopper, Mike, and the group to fight with us against this threat.
