'Stranger Things' season 4 is set to start filming in October

Everyone's hopping on the Netflix bandwagon. And we're not talking individual viewers because if you still don't have a Netflix account, you're already losing the race. We're talking programs. Networks like HBO and Disney are releasing their own streaming services, both dropping within the next year.

But they'll have a hard time giving Netflix a run for their money with the upcoming release of the fourth season of Stranger Things. After the third season's cliff hanger, fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to find out what happens next.

Well, they'll have a bit longer to wait. Production Weekly has confirmed that the fourth season of Stranger Things will start shooting this October. Assuming everything goes well, it's not unreasonable to hope for an air date sometime in 2020.

And we should be okay with that turn around, especially considering there was a two-year gap between seasons two and three. And, personally, I'm okay with waiting as long as is needed given that season four might be the best - and last - of the hit series.

Though we don't know much about the plot, I'm hopeful it'll top season three.

Ross and Matt Duffer, the creators of the hit series, told Entertainment Weekly that they're not positive where season four will go quite yet:

"We have the big broad strokes. It’s just now about filling in those lines in the details. We’re pretty excited about where it’s potentially going to go. Again, like we said, it’s going to feel very different than this season. But I think that’s the right thing to do and I think it’ll be exciting.”

Netflix has yet to make an official statement about Stranger Things' fourth season. Regardless - here's hoping that - to stay one step ahead of emerging streaming services, Netflix renews Stranger Things for a fifth season. Why ruin the good thing they've got going?
