The fourth season of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things has had an understandably troubled production with filming being forced to halt throughout the majority of 2020 as a result of the pandemic before resuming with new safety guidelines in place which caused production to move at a much slower pace.
However, in an interview with Collider to promote Free Guy, Stranger Things executive producer and director Shawn Levy revealed that filming has almost wrapped and a teaser will be released in the coming weeks.
“I have been, along with the brothers, we have been kind of tag-teaming it and directing it as recently as now. So not quite done filming. [We’ll be done] imminently. All I can say is by the time this airs, we’ll at least have given the world a ballpark. And I’m not allowed to say more. By the time Free Guy comes out, August 13th, part of that answer will be known.”
The outlet later clarified that the announcement that Levy was alluding to won’t be a premiere date on the streaming service or a full trailer, but it will be “a little taste of something.”
The latest additions to the season four cast of Stranger Things include Robert Englund, who is best known for his role as the iconic horror villain Freddy Krueger, Tom Wlaschiha, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko, Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen and Grace Van Dien.
