Stranger Things Season 4 release date should have been announced by now if it wasn’t for the COVID-19 pandemic. The cast and crew were ready to film but had to stop the production in March once the virus outbreak happened and it has still not resumed. Netflix is looking to restart Stranger Things Season 4 filming from August but that depends on whether the situation gets under control or not.

While the writers of Stranger Things recently revealed that they have completed the scripts for the fourth season, it could be changed if the filming doesn’t resume shortly. Stranger Things Season 4 script change can happen over the growing age of cast members in the lockdown and the story might include a time leap to balance things.
Stranger Things Season 4 Cast will be Grown up once the Lockdown Ends
Stranger Things Season 4 cast mainly consists of child actors who have grown into teenagers as the show has progressed. While the show timeline has also taken leaps to adapt to their ages and it has been perfect so far. But with the delay in Stranger Things Season 4 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it could get complicated.
Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) was a child actress when the show started and now she is 16 years old. Noah Schnapp (Will), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Sadie Sink (Max) have also grown up in the lockdown and six months could show a great change in such stage.

There are also chances that the lockdown gets extended till the end of this year as the USA has the highest number of coronavirus cases in the world. Stranger Things Season 4 cast members will be totally different once the lockdown ends and the script and storyline will have to be changed if the delay is extended.
Stranger Things Season 4 could show a Time Leap to Adjust with the Actors Age
Stranger Things Season 4 script changes could be easily done without any issues as they would just have to change minor things. The makers could show a one-year time gap or something and it would easily be incorporated without changing much of the storyline. The storyline always shows different years and Stranger Things Season 4 would add one more year to the original timeline.
