The Stranger Things writers room revealed on Twitter that every one the scripts for season Four are accomplished and able to rock as soon as manufacturing will get underway. They did this by taking an image of an enormous ol’ pile of scripts, and after looking at this demented funhouse optical phantasm for a full hour I’m fairly certain there are 9 scripts on that desk. This can be newsworthy in itself, as Stranger Things has flip-flopped its episode depend because it went alongside. Created by Matt and Ross Duffer, the sequence debuted on Netflix in 2016 with eight episodes, bumped as much as 9 episodes for season 2, then again right down to eight for season 3.
It’s value noting that, again in October of 2019, it was reported Stranger Things season Four can be eight episodes. But, as you might have observed when you’ve got two eyes and a working mind stem, some stuff has modified since then. Just having a accomplished set of scripts earlier than filming in any respect is a brand new change of tempo for the present. Stranger Things normally brings in producer Shawn Levy to direct its mid-season episodes so the Duffers can end the latter half scripts.
Bumping up an additional episode can imply something from the story increasing due to quarantine time or, as within the case of season 2, the Duffers as soon as once more vastly overestimated how a lot time the viewers would need to spend with a set of characters we barely know or care about. Either manner, after a two-year absence and some main cliffhangers, season Four has a whole lot of floor to cowl. The first teaser launched one of many main plot factors, confirming that David Harbour‘s Sheriff Hopper may be very a lot alive however imprisoned in a snowy wasteland.
