It usually already takes a long time for Netflix to release a new season of Stranger Things, and it seems that wait will now be even longer since the Coronavirus pandemic halted production of Season 4. While things are unclear regarding when production will get back underway for the highly anticipated series, there has been a little tease that it could be soon. A new image taken from the Stranger Things writing room has revealed 9 total scripts – which seems to imply that Season 4 of the show will have a 9 episode count, much like the second season of the series did.
You can see the scripts for yourself in the social media post down below, where nine scripts are stacked on top of one another. The image also includes a caption where it says “Stranger Things 4: the complete season,” which seems to imply we will indeed be getting a 9 episode season. And that’s a nice treat considering that the third season only featured 8 episodes much like the first.

It’s nice to know that the crew behind Stranger Things are still working on the project, even if shooting hasn’t yet been able to continue. Again, things are clear on that front, but if the writers are prepping scripts then it’s likely that they’re preparing to begin shooting again soon. And that’s good news for everyone that’s eagerly anticipating another return to Hawkins and another chance to see old friends.
As for the plot of the season, there isn’t too much known other than it’s supposed to be very scary and actor David Harbour will return as Chief Hopper – unfortunately he’s been imprisoned at a Russian labor camp.
The rest of the cast will feature many other familiar faces, including Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp returning as our main cast. We then also have the return of Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Winona Ryder, and Cara Buono.
