It’s an exciting time to be a fan of Netflix’s hit original series Stranger Things. The third season continued to appeal to fans of the show, and after a cliffhanger which suggested an interesting new location for the series, it looks like the fourth season will indeed be living up to these expectations. As reported by Murphy’s Multiverse blog, it appears that Stranger Things Season 4 will be shooting at a Lithuanian prison set which was also used for the HBO series Chernobyl.
Of course, there still isn’t any kind of public date yet available for when the fourth season of Stranger Things will begin shooting specifically. But we do know that Stranger Things Season 4 will shoot at this Lithuanian prison set well before the rest of the series is shot, and that the rest of the shoot will all take place in Atlanta much like the three prior seasons.
As Stranger Things fans likely remember from the third season, it ended with a cliffhanger which revealed some kind of Russian prison facility and implied that *SPOILER* Detective Hopper might be dead. Although we don’t exactly know the nature of whatever this Russian prison facility is yet or how it will tie into the rest of the Stranger Things storyline, the fact production will begin at the Lithuanian prison set before the rest of the show does imply we’ll be seeing much more of this Russian facility, which could be good news for Hopper.
In fact, we do not yet even know what the plot for Stranger Things Season 4 will be at all. But we can assume that since the Duffer Brothers will once again be returning, that it will be a suspenseful ride which not only lives up to the Stranger Things hype fans have come to known but also the mysterious atmosphere and world building that the first three seasons have excelled so well at.
Hopefully we find out more about Stranger Things Season 4 soon, and especially learn how this Russian prison facility will factor into the rest of the series. As always, stay tuned to ScreenGeek for more information as we have it.
