New episodes of Netflix's hit sci-fi adventure series "Stranger Things" are "coming soon enough," the show's executive producer and director Shawn Levy told Variety.

It's been more than two years since the last season's premiere on July 4, 2019.

"The delay is due in large measure to COVID and the pace at which we have to work to do so safely, but it also happens to be the season that we chose to go much bigger," Levy said in the new interview. "It's the scale of this season and the multi-settings of season four."

The cast and crew had already started filming the fourth season shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic began. Production was shut down for a period of time before resuming last October with new safety guidelines in place. A few teasers for the upcoming season have already been released, but without much new footage for fans to parse through (aside from the confirmation of Hopper's return after "dying" in the season three finale).

Levy told Variety that fans will get an announcement about season four "quite soon" - so perhaps a full-length trailer and premiere date reveal aren't too far off.

Season two of "Stranger Things" premiered on Halloween, while season three was released on the Fourth of July. Will Netflix go for another holiday premiere, perhaps Thanksgiving or Christmas 2021? We'll know soon enough, according to Levy.
