Stranger Things creators, the Duffer Brothers, are counting down the days until the release of Season 4, Part 2 on Friday, July 1, just as fans are counting down the days until the fifth and final season of their record-breaking Netflix hit.
Matt Duffer told TVLine that he's not sure they're ready to give a shooting date just yet. However, much of it is rather well plotted out.
That isn't to suggest that what he and his brother Ross have planned will not be adjusted before or during the filming. Matt explained that every time they make a season, they learn a lot. They have learned a lot this year just working with all of their new actors and the ones they have worked with for a long time, so he is sure it'll vary a little bit from that outline.
Matt added that the difficult part is the ending. That is, without a doubt, the most stressful aspect. They are hoping to make a good landing.
At least one part of Season 5 appears to be predetermined. Ross is sure they will do a time jump, referring to how quickly the show's youthful leads are growing up. Ideally, they would have shot Seasons 4 and 5 back to back, but that was simply not possible.
He also explained that when they start the room up, these are all discussions they will have with their writers. Ross concluded by saying that, believe it or not, Season 4 is still in the works. They are attempting to complete the final two episodes, which are enormous.
Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1 premiered on Netflix at the end of May, bringing back a number of fan favourites while also introducing new places and villains. Season 4 features Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), a menacing foe who proves to be the largest threat to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and others yet, following the Demogorgon and the Mind Flayer from previous seasons.
The new season dives deeper than ever before into Eleven's background, setting up a huge confrontation in Season 4 Part 2's two episodes.
