Stranger Things season four is due to land on Netflix sometime in 2021 and fans cannot wait to see the main cast return.

Fans have been searching for evidence of a potential script leak, and Express.co.uk is investigating.
Has there been a Stranger Things script leak?
The creators of Stranger Things have just announced production for the fourth season will start up again in September.
The new season is due to be filmed in Georgia, and the Hollywood Reporter said the start date would be September 17.
However, with the coronavirus outbreak still having an impact on production, the season four release date is still up in the air.
The Duffer Brothers told Deadline they have known the ending of the show for a long time, as they originally believed the series would only make one season.
But with the success of the sci-fi series going above all expectations, fans were keen for a fourth season.

There has been some search on Google for a potential script leak for the latest season.
Express.co.uk has approached Netflix for comment on whether there has been a script leak and is awaiting a response.
Back in November 2019, Capital FM reported how actress Debbie Wood released two of her audition tapes for a role in season four.
There were worries some possible plotlines had been leaked as a result, with Wood playing the Hawkins Middle School receptionist.
Fans already know part of the fourth season will be set in Kamchatka, Russia, as it features in the latest teaser.
In the same teaser, fans got to see a clean-shaven Hopper for the first time, since he was injured while closing the portal to the Upside Down.
Screen Rant reported season four production was thankfully ahead of schedule before the coronavirus outbreak.
Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler, told The Guardian: “It was perfect.
“We were ahead of schedule, which has never happened before, because there’s never a realistic approach to scheduling, and then boom, it just stopped, and everyone had to go home, and everyone’s just so sad.”
If a script for season four has been leaked, there is a chance it was one of a number of alternative scripts.

Creators of successful series often create multiple scripts, or cryptic scripts, in order to avoid potential spoilers.
The Marvel franchise has suffered the impact of leaked footage and fans coming across confidential scripts.
Fans have of course come up with a few theories for what is expected to happen in the fourth season, but this is purely speculation.
Some believe the Hopper seen in the trailer is, in fact, a clone of the original sheriff, whereas others believe various cast members will head to Russia to rescue Hopper.
There is a chance Hawkins will not feature in the new season at all, as the Wheelers packed their bags and left at the end of season three.

At the start of the new season, fans are likely to see Hopper clashing with the heavily armed Russian guards.
There is a possibility if Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and the rest of his friends find out he is alive, they will attempt to save him.
When Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) catches wind of his survival, she will be the first to swoop in.
There is no evidence to suggest a script has been leaked for the fourth season at this time.
