When is Stranger Things 4 out?

Filming is still ongoing for Stranger Things 4, so there’s currently no official release date.

Cast member David Harbour (who plays Jim Hopper) confirmed during an interview that he expects the show to wrap in August.

As a result, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the gang back on our screens this year.

At least we have the first three seasons to watch over and over, right?

Stranger Things is available on Netflix.
