David Harbour 'reveals' the release date for season four of Stranger Things

David Harbour has revealed the release date for season four of Stranger Things. 

Or, at least, the original release date.

According to Digital Spythe actor recently took part in a Q&A on Instagram, where he revealed that season four was "supposed to come out early next year, I think, although I don't have authority on this".

But given the coronavirus pandemic, he admitted that this will "probably be pushed back".

Either way, it's definitely good news because there's more Stranger Things on the way (and the wait isn't too far away).

In comes as production on the fourth season of the sci-fi series was suspended earlier this month due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

In February, the streaming service shared the first teaser for the highly anticipated season as they confirmed Hopper's fate.

It looks like it's good news for the 'American'. Well, kind of.

The Duffer Brothers sent fans a message "from Russia with love" on Valentine's Day, as they confirmed the return of the previously-presumed-to-be-dead Hopper.

"We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway -- and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper," they said.

"Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human...and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….

"Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime -- pray for the American."

Alongside the message, they released the first footage from season four of Stranger Things - which also debuts a new look for Hopper...
