He revealed season four episodes were "supposed to come out early next year, I think, although I don't have authority on this."

But after the coronavirus pandemic shut down a number of TV shows in production, he added the premiere date will "probably be pushed back".

Earlier this month, it was revealed production on season four of Stranger Things had been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the world.

Last week, show boss Shaun Levy described the “bittersweet” feeling he had when shutting down filming.


Shaun, who is executive producer and director of Stranger Things, told how when he informed the 100-plus members of his cast and crew about the development, the decision had already been taken.

He admitted it felt like a “bittersweet moment” for everyone involved as they’d developed a “familial” vibe and having to tell the entire cast and crew they had to stop “when on a roll” felt tough, but unavoidable.

Recalling the moment he broke the news, Shaun told Variety: “I was having phone calls with Netflix while directing takes and blocking scenes.

“We shared the news with our cast and crew that we would be pausing production out of an abundance of caution.

"There were no sick crew members, no one was exhibiting symptoms, but it seemed like the right thing to do.”

Describing the experience of dismantling the massive set at such short notice as “intense”, Shaun revealed the staff finished their scheduled shoot that day before going their separate ways to “wherever they thought they should in terms of social distancing and sitting out”.

He added: “When you’re shooting, you create this micro society, this community. You’re aware of the world beyond, but in all of my years directing and producing, I’m hard pressed to come up with any comparisons for this truly global situation.”
