Season Four Of Stranger Things Set To Resume Filming This Month
According to a report in Deadline, the cast and crew will pick up filming on 28 September after a pause due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The hit show was in the very early stages of filming the fourth season when Netflix shut down production on 13 March, due to ongoing concerns about the pandemic.
The fourth season is reported to consist of eight episodes, with all scripts finished in June.

The upcoming season is set to be 'the scariest yet', according to star Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington.
Earlier this year, he told Total Film: "I think that this year - and I know I say this every single year - but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark."
He added: "Oh man, it's pretty amazing - the Duffer brothers have really done it again."
The trailer has cleared up a pretty big mystery after it showed Jim Hopper (David Harbour) looking to be very much alive - albeit it in Russia - after fans were worried that he died at the end of the last season.
Speaking at Liverpool Comic Con, Harbour revealed: "There are these three things that we've established in the season that, if we don't pay off, it means that they're bad writers. And the Duffer Brothers are very good writers.

"So I know specifically that in season four we will give you a big, huge reveal about Hopper's backstory."
Well, that all sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it?
As yet there's no release date for season four.
Earlier this year, Harbour revealed that the new season was due to land next year but due to the pandemic this could be pushed back.
When asked, he responded: "Who knows? We're shut down now. It was supposed to come out early next year, I think, although I don't have authority on this. And now I don't know. That'll probably be pushed back. Hopefully we can get back to work but I don't know what that looks like."
Netflix declined to comment on Deadline's report; LADbible has reached out to the streaming service for confirmation.
