Joe Keery, known for playing Steve Harrington on the hit Netflix show Stranger Things has made interesting revelations about the show's next season, reported Indie Wire. 

Keery told fans to expect a much darker turn in season four for the popular science-fiction show in a conversation with Total Film Magazine. 


"Oh man, it’s pretty amazing — the Duffer brothers have really done it again,” Keery said, referring to Matt and Ross Duffer who worked on season three. “I think that this year — and I know I say this every single year — but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark,” he added.

Keery also talked about bidding farewell to his iconic Scoops Ahoy outfit which he rocked for the most part in the show. “I know that costume served its purpose and I’m glad to retire it. Do I have it at home for Halloween? I don’t, unfortunately. They won’t let me have that one. One day!” Keery said.


Further details about the release of season four remain shrouded, as Netflix pulled the plug on production on March 13, just as the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across the globe.

The shoot was originally slated from January through August, which means that the crew has almost five months of material left to complete.

According to producer Shawn Levy, after Netflix suspended production in March, the Stranger Things cast and crew “went their separate ways to wherever they thought they should in terms of social distancing and sitting out."


“When you’re shooting, you create this micro society, this community. You’re aware of the world beyond, but in all of my years directing and producing, I’m hard pressed to come up with any comparisons for this truly global situation," said Levy, lamenting the uncertain goodbye.

The  current production shutdown is expected to delay the release to  a 2021 premiere date at the earliest for season four.
