Like true fans of the infamous holiday, people start counting down to the next spooky season the day after October 31st, and it’s no different for the major event of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. Last year’s display was as terrifying as ever, and fans were especially excited for the Stranger Things house. With the new Stranger Things season 4 teaser trailer dropping today and talk of tentative filming schedules, fans are already hoping that it will be released in time to debut as another feature at Halloween Horror Nights 2020.
What’s On Netflix reported that filming for season 4 began on January 7, 2020, and is set to wrap up by August 5, 2020.
While that filming schedule seems like a crunch to make another Universal HHN debut, fans are still keeping the hope. According to Orlando Informer, the lineup for this year’s HHN has not been announced yet.
No news is good news, right? It means there's still a chance! One fan expressed their pleas for a summer release date.
Please release Stranger Things 4 by summer so we can have it at HHN 🥺— Mateo || 164 Days (@Mateo || 164 Days)1581693525.0
This will be Halloween Horror Night’s 30th year scaring the pants off eager guests, and last year, Millie Bobby Brown herself even made an appearance at the Orlando event.
This Tweeter made a point — and possibly the best pun —that, well, stranger things have happened!

Anyone remotely familiar with the film industry knows that anything can happen during filming, including both setbacks and possibly getting ahead of schedule.
This Twitter user replied to a question about the release date with pragmatism, implying it probably wouldn't release before HHN.
@iamcg83 I don’t think Season 4 comes out this year before HHN does it?— John Sebastian La Valle (@John Sebastian La Valle)1581691265.0

Still, hardcore fans are holding out for a terrifying miracle that the season debuts in time for HHN 2020.
