There is little doubt that fans are hoping that the cast and crew of Stranger Things Season 4 could start working on the series again. After all, the coronavirus outbreak shutdowns have led to the Netflix show's return being pushed back. However, it looks like there is at least one person who isn't very concerned about the delay. Joe Keery has just stated that delaying the production is actually the best thing that could happen for the series.

Keery recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about not being able to film the fourth season and the man who plays Steve Harrington was surprisingly optimistic about the delay. According to Keery, all the extra time right now could actually help the Duffer brothers refine the upcoming episodes.

"I mean, it definitely gives them more time to write, and I think that that's always good," Keery said. He was also quick to point out that there is at least one disadvantage.

"I guess there's the issue of the kids growing, but apart from that, I just think that we want to get the show out as soon as possible for people. That's definitely true," Keery said. "But something that the brothers have always been extremely, extremely controlling over is just the quality control of the show. So, if this just gives them more time to realize what their vision is, then yeah, I think it could be a good thing."

Although it's an excellent point, we're hoping that production could start soon so that Stranger Things Season 4 could be released by next year.

Stranger Things Season 4 has not yet been given an official release date but is expected to premiere on Netflix by 2021.
