Many of your favorite TV shows have been postponed indefinitely as the coronavirus pandemic impacted production.

Stranger Things” is one of the shows that was forced to halt production of its fourth season.

After being delayed for months, cameras began rolling again in early October after Netflix shared a cryptic photo on its official Twitter account.

The image featured a slate with the caption, “Today in Hawkins.”

Fans were pleased to know that the cast was back in action and things were moving along, but much remained unclear about the upcoming season.

While most expected the pandemic to have a negative effect on the series, executive producer Shawn Levy told Collider that the pandemic may have led to the best season yet.

While chatting with the outlet about his new Netflix series “Dash & Lily,” he gave an update on season 4.

“I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD," Levy said. "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.”

Since we have no choice but to wait for new episodes, it’s nice to know that there’s a silver lining to the delays after all.

They always say, good things come to those who wait!
