Stranger Things Season 4 won’t be coming out anytime soon due to the current pandemic. While that has been bad news for pretty much everyone on planet Earth since plans were canceled and events were delayed, it did lead to more time for some creatives. Apparently, production for the hit Netflix show’s fourth season has been going a bit better since it has forced the writers to complete scripts before shooting.
Actress Natalya Dyer confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that previous seasons had the writing teamwork on scripts as shooting went on, which sounds like a recipe for disaster but seems to have benefited everyone involved thus far. Still, we can only imagine the sigh of relief these actors must have gotten when it comes to getting a full script to act from right away.
"Normally, we get the first few scripts, and then they have to keep writing due to the schedule of it. And it takes a while to craft a script. So, normally, there’s a kind of ‘writing as we’re going,’ but it seems they’ve had enough time. I think it’s maybe been a blessing for the writers, in some way, because they had the time to just sit down, think and create.”
While this should be the norm, the fact that it worked on previous Stranger Things seasons must mean that they were doing something right. It’s a good thing this wasn’t a movie since most of the bad ones have suffered from scripts being written while production is happening. Maybe these writers are just great when their backs are against the wall but we’re glad they got their shit together.
Stranger Things Season 4 does not have a release date yet, as of this writing.
