Director Shawn Levy, 53, recently stated that the long-awaited follow-up of the hit Netflix series would be ‘super worth the wait.’
The program’s executive producer spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about various aspects of the forthcoming run of episodes, which will premiere sometime next year.
Levy began the interview by expressing that he and the show’s creators were aware of the hype that has been generated regarding the program and desired to make them available to the public as soon as possible.

He noted, ‘We are long-delayed, and the Duffers and I want to share season four with the world as badly as the world wants it.’
The filmmaker noted that the reason that the run of episodes has taken so long to produce is based on the scale that the series’ producers had in mind.
‘Part of what’s taking time is long before Covid and the pandemic existed, season four was built to be by far the most ambitious, cinematic, sprawling and epic season that we’ve ever done…by a lot,’ he said.
Levy concluded by expressing that the next set of episodes would please fans of the show despite the time that it has taken to make them as fine-tuned as possible.
