Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer doesn’t want Netflix subscribers to get their hopes up about season 4 premiering anytime soon.
Filming on the new episodes only resumed earlier in October, after Stranger Things bosses halted production this past spring because of complications of the pandemic.
Because of the significant hiatus, Dyer – who plays Nancy Wheeler in the series – has confirmed that it will be “a while” before the fourth season actually premieres.
“Honestly, the scripts are great,” Dyer told The Independent. “Every time we end a season, we all think, ‘Where is this going to go? Where can this possibly go?’ Then we get the scripts for the next season and we’re like, ‘Oh my god, wow, like, wow!'”
Millie Bobby Brown also recently opened up about wishes for own character Eleven, expressing hopes that viewers will see her tie the knot before the end of the series.
“Oh my god, she’s been through so much, I just hope she’s happy,” Brown told Glamour. “I always say to the Duffers [show creators], ‘Can she just not smile like in one take?’ I would love her story to be rounded off by like a good ending.
“I trust the Duffer brothers so much that it’s going to be beautiful and I’m going to love it no matter what it is. But I’d love for her to get her powers back because she is a hero, she is like a super woman in a way.
“And she loves Mike – I want them to get married. That’s what I need. I need a wedding scene for Stranger Things, period.”
While Netflix subscribers might have a long wait ahead of them for season four, the writing team has at least released the titles of two upcoming episodes.
Caleb McLaughlin (aka Lucas) is also starring in new Netflix Western Concrete Cowboy with Idris Elba, which will begin streaming sometime in 2021.
For now, Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are streaming on Netflix for all of your Halloween rewatch needs.
