With the COVID-19 pandemic delaying production on a number of high-profile projects, fans have only gotten more excited to see what's in store for their favorite movies and shows. Among these is the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things, which had to pause filming for several months last year. While we'll probably still have to wait a while to see exactly what the new season will entail, a new series of set photos have made some begin to speculate. The photos, which were shared by the Twitter account @StrangerNews11, appear to show a number of cast and crew members gathered at the Hawkins cemetery.

Admittedly, the photos don't provide too much context for what's happening at the cemetery, but fans are sure to speculate if it could spell the end for someone in the series' ensemble of characters.
While plot details remain a mystery when it comes to Stranger Things Season 4, other members of the series' cast and crew have been candid about the pandemic's effect on the new episodes.
"All I can tell you is that season four is... It's darker. It's going to be epic. There's lots of great surprises and all your favorite people are in it," stunt coordinator Hiro Koda teased to ComicBook.com last year. "It's going to be so good. It's so epic. I've gotten to read through almost eight scripts now, so it's pretty awesome. I don't know how many we're going to get."
“I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season Four, date still TBD," producer Shawn Levy shared with Collider late last year. "But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever.”
