Netflix has announced that it will be temporarily shutting down production for its original movies and shows for a while to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. This means the upcoming Stranger Things 4 has been put on hold as it was currently in production at Netflix’s new studios in Albuquerque. While the halt in production may delay the upcoming season, the halt in production is said to only last two weeks.

Warner Bros. Television Group released a statement in regards to the outbreak and how it has been affecting filming and production in the country saying;
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#C22D07″ class=”” size=”21″]”With the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is halting production on some of our 70-plus series and pilots currently filming or about to begin. There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of our productions, but the health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remain our top priority. During this time, we will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control as well as local officials and public health professionals in each city where our productions are based.”[/perfectpullquote]
But Netflix is not the only studio halting production and releases. Disney has put the upcoming live-action Mulan on hold and delayed its release in cinemas, 007: No Time to Die has been delayed until later this year and the new Fast and Furious has been put on hold until further notice.
The upcoming Netflix Stranger Things season 4 is without a release date at this time. Netflix dropped a teaser trailer for the game last month which revealed Hopper’s return to the show as he was seen digging at some sort of slave camp in Russia. We will have to just be patient and wait to see what is going to happen in the upcoming season.
