Fans of Netflix's 'Stranger Things' will have to wait until 2022 for season 4

Sorry 'Stranger Things' fans - the wait for season 4 might be longer than we thought!

In a recent interview, Finn Wolfhard (who plays Mike Wheeler) gave a bit of an update as to when we can expect to see season 4 on Netflix.

"Season 4? It should be out sometime next year, hopefully," he said.

It's not the first we've heard of delays however, last year a producer spoke about how Covid-19 has impacted filming for better and worse...

"I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD. But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever."

The Duffer Brothers themselves have even said that "Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more."

So while the wait has been long (season 3 was released in 2019), we're sure it'll be worth it in the end.
