To close, more images appear, but one stands out from the rest and is that the new addition of the show seems, for the first time, the star of “Anne With an E,” Amybeth McNulty.

Producer Spills Details
Steve Weintraub of the Collider site interviewed director Shawn Levy about the arrival of Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, “Free Guy .” Coincidentally, Levy is the executive producer and director of “Stranger Things,” a situation that the journalist knew how to take advantage of.
Weintraub got straight to the point and asked why season 4 is taking so long, obviously considering the pandemic factor in between. Levy was surprised with his response since he explained that the delay is because the fourth will be the most ambitious season of the show.
“As much as it hurts our viewers that so much time has passed, believe me, it hurts Matt, Ross (the Duffer brothers ) and me more. It’s kind of a perfect combination of COVID-19 closing storm, slower pace of filming in health protocols, which are necessary, and we just happened to pick season 4 to be by far, and I mean by far, far away. far, the most ambitious of the seasons”, revealed the producer and director in the interview.
Levy also explained that the delays are also due to the story’s expansion; before, they were only limited to shooting everything in the Georgia studios. Now the situation is different since the action will not take place only in the small town of Hawkins. “This is the first season that we have this sprawling geography, shooting in multiple locations, and we’re doing it all in the context of a world that has made filming slower and more delayed. That is why it is taking so long ,” added the interviewee.
