Netflix paused production in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Stranger Things Season 4 was one of several Netflix shows affected by the coronavirus shutdown.

In March, Monsters & Critics reported that Netflix paused production on all film and scripted TV series in the U.S. and Canada.

The streaming giant also announced production outside North America would be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Filming of The Witcher Season 2 — starring Superman actor Henry Cavill — at Arborfield Studios, west of London, was also halted.

Another Netflix show affected by the coronavirus pandemic shutdown included Grace and Frankie Season 7.

Production of Stranger Things resumed late in September in Atlanta, Georgia.

Police Chief Jim Hopper is returning for Season 4

In February, Netflix released a teaser trailer for Stranger Things Season 4, titled From Russia with Love.

The teaser dropped the spoiler that David Harbor would return for Season 4 as Hawkins Police Department Chief Jim Hopper.

The spoiler came as a relief to many fans following the shocking conclusion of the final episode of Stranger Things Season 3.

In the Season 3 finale, Hopper appeared to have died in a massive explosion.

The Season 3 ending sparked widespread speculation about Hopper’s fate, and many fans refused to believe the show had killed him off.

Some argued the post-credits scene for the Season 3 finale hinted that Hopper was teleported to the Russian prison in Kamchatka.

The teaser showing Hopper as part of a chain gang working on a railroad track in Russia’s remote location confirmed speculation that Hopper did not die at the end of Season 3.

The Duffer Brothers also released a statement in February, assuring fans that the beloved police chief will return in Season 4.
