Natalia Dyer spoke openly about Stranger Things and why she felt the quarantine period was a boon to the season 4 script. Read below to learn more about the 25-year-old actress who shares the same thing.
Stranger Things had already started production for season 4 earlier this year when COVID-19 forced the film and television industry to stop filming and go into the high-altitude mode. The months of the week changed and by then, the writing team, Matt and Ross Duffer, had finished writing the entire new season and had added an additional episode to the eight originally reported. Also, the official Twitter update came on June 19, which was an image of the finished script.
Natalia Dyer Shared
The Hollywood reporter asked Natalia Dyer, whom fans love as Nancy Wheeler in Stranger Things, to confirm whether Season 4 consisted of nine episodes the 25-year-old actress shared, “then it appears to be.” Speaking about how the quarantine period has been a boon to the writing team,
Natalia shared, “Usually we get some scripts first, and then they have to keep writing because of their schedule.”. And it takes some time. A dash. So, in general, there is a kind of “writing as we go” but it seems like they have enough time. I think they are probably the writers. It is a blessing, somehow, because they had time. Just to sit, think and create. So yes, it seems they have it all.
The previous three seasons were released in July 2016, October 2017 and July 2019, respectively. The widening gap between the seasons (15 months between seasons 1 and 2, 21 months between seasons 2 and 3) potentially hinted at a slightly earlier release by 2021, which was confirmed by Harbor as Netflix’s initial intentions. Things will come a little later due to the delay in the movie, maybe another July release for the show? However, this would be an almost unreasonably fast change.
About Releasing Stranger Things
Other theories included the release of Stranger Things season 4 on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Seasons 2 and 3 expanded their stories and were released on major holidays (Halloween and Independence Day, respectively), so perhaps the intention was to be tagged for a holiday once again. Can we wait until the end of 2021 for more strange things? Until filming officially resumes, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Earlier this month, filming for the series was suggested to be “temporarily underway” on the September start date after its initial suspension in March.
