It looks like there’s still going to be some time to wait for Stranger Things‘ fourth season – but according to star Natalia Dyer it’s going to be well worth the wait.


The actor, who plays Nancy Wheeler on the hit Netflix show, has revealed that the next instalment will be “really big”, adding that she’s excited for what lays in store for her character.

Speaking to Vogue, she said, “Honestly, the scripts are great. I’m very excited. I’m excited for Nancy. Every time we end a season, we all think, where is this going to go? Where can this possibly go? Then we get the scripts for the next season and we’re, like, ‘Oh my God, wow, like, wow!’”


She added, “So, while I can’t say a lot, except that it’s going to be a while before it comes out, it will definitely be worth it. It’s going to be really big. It’s going to be big!”

The coronavirus pandemic has caused major production delays to the fourth series, with filming having been paused back in March and only starting up again earlier in October.The time away from production wasn’t entirely unproductive though, with the writer’s room having tweeted back in June that all of Stranger Things season four had now been written.Given the show’s reputation as one of the streaming platform’s most popular and successful shows, millions of fans are waiting with bated breath for the nest series, especially since there are loads of unanswered questions left over from the third series.
But any news of a release date is not yet forthcoming – with the new season unlikely to hit the streamer until summer 2021 at the earliest.
