Where was Season 4 of Stranger Things filmed?

After nearly three years, Stranger Things is back with Season 4 this summer and it’s been way too long for fans. The excitement for the new season has only grown with the delay, but there were a lot of issues surrounding the filming. The main one was the pandemic, which caused filming to stop and then start again in October 2020. Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin Henderson, told Us Weekly in December 2020 that it absolutely changed the way things worked on set.

“It’s definitely an unorthodox form of shooting,” Matarazzo says. “Everyone on set has been very diligent in wearing their PPE. Even for our off-camera work, we keep our masks and goggles on. Take a lot of distance. Separation during lunch and transport from base to set.”

So where did this “unorthodox” recording take place? Warning: minor spoilers ahead.

For starters, it took quite a few locations for the show, as some of the biggest characters, Eleven and Byers, have moved across the country to California when the season kicks off. Dustin, Lucas, and Max are still in Hawkins, Indiana, and Hopper hasn’t broken up, but he’s stuck deep in Russian soil.

Scenes set in “Hawkins” are generally shot in Atlanta, Georgia, but Decider reports that the California scenes were actually filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Eleven and Will attend a fictional school called Californian Lenora Hills High School, and those scenes were filmed at Eldorado High School in Albuquerque. Other scenes took place at Albuquerque’s Roller King skating rink and in Los Lunas, New Mexico.

All shooting in Russia was done in Vilnius, Lithuania. The scenes in which Hopper is seen in a prison cell are remarkably authentic as they were filmed in the centuries-old Lukiškes Prison. It is no longer in use except for making TV and movies. Pretty much the perfect place for Stranger Things.
