“I won’t give too much away, but season 4 is definitely my favorite when it comes to costumes.” — Gaten Matarazzo

Stranger Things” season 4 may be the best season yet — at least when it comes to clothes.

“One of my favorite aspects of getting to play Dustin is his wardrobe,” “Stranger Things” star Gaten Matarazzo recently told Us Weekly. “Fittings are always a blast. What he wears says a lot about him, I think. Vibrant colors and goofy prints. I won’t give too much away, but season 4 is definitely my favorite when it comes to costumes.”

The “Stranger Things” star also told Us Weekly that while the cast members usually get to go home for the holidays, they still like to celebrate on set by decorating their trailers and buying little gifts for each other.

Matarazzo and the other “Stranger Things” cast members returned to Atlanta for filming in late September, the Deseret News reported. Although the pandemic delayed production for months, the downtime has given the Duffer brothers more chances to refine the script, according to Collider.

“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,” Shawn Levy, “Stranger Things” executive producer, recently told Collider.

“So the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever.”

Last month, actress Natalia Dyer — who plays Nancy Wheeler — told Vogue season 4 is “going to be really big.”

“Every time we end a season, we all think, ‘Where is this going to go? Where can this possibly go?’ Dyer said. “Then we get the scripts for the next season and we’re like … ‘Wow, like, wow!’

Netflix hasn’t yet announced a release date for the new season, although it will likely be sometime in July or August 2021, the Deseret News reported. Fans can also expect more beyond season 4, as the Duffer brothers have announced that it won’t be the end.

“I would love (Eleven’s) story to be rounded off by a good ending,” Millie Bobby Brown recently told Glamour. “I trust the Duffer brothers so much that it’s going to be beautiful and I’m going to love it no matter what it is.”
