Well, as we have already mentioned that the shooting was supposed to be over in August of 2020 but it was postponed for a few months till October 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic which is why Netflix couldn’t make any announcement regarding the release of this season.
But, from all the trusted sources around the globe, we have known that Stranger Things season 4 is not going to release in anytime in 2021 because we all know that the post-production process of Stranger Things is pretty long so we have to better wait for the first half of 2022 when the 4th season will most probably release. It would even release in the first quarter of 2022 to surprise big fans like us. Wouldn’t it be amazing?! It is obvious that the release date of the season will differ from country to country. For example, in the countries like USA, UK, Canada, India, South Africa & the Philippines, it will release in the first half of 2022 but for other countries, it could be delayed.

Stranger Things Season 4: Expectations, Theories & Rumours!
Thousands of fan theories and expectations are buzzing around the globe about what will happen in Stranger Things season 4 and what we can expect from this brilliantly created science fiction TV show. Will all the hidden mysteries be solved in the next season?!
Is Hopper Really Alive? Will We See Him in 4th Season?
So, we have already known that Stranger Things 4 is finally coming in early 2022 and the first thing that fans speculate is whether we will see Hopper in the next season or not despite watching the trailer where we have seen Hopper ALIVE with his hair and moustache shaved working at a snowy field in Kamchatka, Russia.
But, it is now officially confirmed that Hopper who died at the end of season 3 is obviously alive and we will definitely see him in the next season! In the new trailer, we have seen Jim Hopper in Russia as an American prisoner and he looks slimmer & gaunt than his usual version which can be expected that a lot of time has passed as a prisoner.
This is the official confirmation about Hopper that the Duffer Brothers stated: “We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway – and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper! Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other.”
This official statement about Jim Hopper’s presence in Stranger Things Season 4 has been put into theories by the fans which create some strong rumors about how Hopper save himself. Most of the fans speculate that Hopper jumped into the Upside Down just before the machine exploded which we think might be true!!
Will Eleven Regain Her Powers?!
Let’s not forget that season 4 of Stranger Things will likely focus on Eleven & how she will get her power back. And, if she somehow regains her abilities back which we assure she does then she will definitely be able to locate Hopper!
But there are so many questions still buzzing through our brains. in the latest teaser trailer, Dr. Brenner aka Papa returns with some new test subjects at Hawkins Lab, and just like Eleven, each of these children has a number. At the end of the trailer, Brenner says: “Eleven, are you listening?” before El opens her eyes. This creates so much excitement as well as confusion to the fans as it rises so many questions like, is it a flashback? Or is it a present-day? Is Dr. Brenner really back?! And many more questions…
The new teaser trailer featuring Dr. Brenner can also suggest that we would find out more about the dark history of El in the Hawkins Lab along with other children like her!
Romance Split in Stranger Things 4?!
As we have already watched in season 3 of Stranger Things, Joyce left Hawkins with Will, Jonathan, and Eleven with her while Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Max remained with Nancy, Steve, Robin, and Erica. This will most probably affect all the relationships between the characters.
If we take a closer look at the romantic side of the series, we can notice the distance that Mike and Eleven as well as Jonathan and Nancy will face in the upcoming season. So, we will perhaps witness the romantic test between these two couples. Max and Lucas might still enjoy their romance as they are close at Hawkins. Dustin’s relationship with Suzie will take another ride in the next season. But an important question still remains which is: will Steve still remain single or will he get someone for him too? Finally as for Joyce, finding Hopper is a must!
One of our favorite cast members, Finn Wolfhard who played the role of Mike Wheeler recently teased to CBC that Stranger Things 4 is “the darkest season there’s ever been. Every year, it gets amped up. Every year it gets funnier and darker and sadder, and everything.”
