Netflix is taking the appropriate precautions amid the Coronavirus scare.

When a teaser was finally released in February for Season 4 of Stranger Things, we all had high hopes that the series' return was right around the corner. We were also equally relieved to learn that Hopper was in fact still alive somewhere. However, it now looks like fans will continue waiting for Season 4 to drop and answers to all of their strangest questions. Unfortunately, the wait will likely be much longer than expected due to Coronavirus, reports Deadline. Along with all the other media companies, Netflix has officially suspended production due to the unfolding health crisis.

Better safe than sorry has been the general consensus as more and more bans continue to be issued. The plan, at least today, is for all filming of the series, and many others Netflix shows, to be put on pause for the next two weeks. As the publication notes, all TV and films in US and Canada will be grounded starting March 16. This decision is in compliance with the travel ban and large group gathering restrictions decided by President Donald Trump.

Thankfully, the cast continues to drop hints about what we can expect from the series this time. On Instagram, fans were recently given a sneak peek of their table read. From the looks of it, everyone behind the scenes appear just as ready for Season 4 as we are. But safety first, Stranger Things next.
