A Stranger Things' fan was in Rome, GA on October 5, when they spotted a few vehicles, and one that's strikingly similar to Hopper's van. Oh, and a filming crew. Of course, the fan quickly took as many pictures as they could before being asked to leave.
First of all, check out the fan's post:
I "Here's everything I got until I got asked to leave."
So why did the fan think of the Stranger Things' set? Well, because there was one car in particular that looked a whole lot like Hopper's car.
Despite it looking like the Stranger Things' set, we can't see any of the Stranger Things cast, but fans speculated that the reason for this is because the scene they're shooting is an 'establishing shot', i.e., a shot that sets the context for a scene. Often these shots don't require cast members.
Other eagle-eyed fans are also pointing out that the scene resembled the last scene of Stranger Things season 3.
Could we be expecting an immediate continuation scene from the ending of Stranger Things season 3?
Another fan also posted a short clip of the alleged 'Stranger Things' filming crew and the vehicles leaving at night:
I "This is them coming back over the 2nd Ave bridge. I figured if it was stranger things that van would at least have a Hawkins Lab decal".
(Here's another video that was taken in "Rome, Georgia, 5 Oct 2019 around 9:45 pm.")
Anyway, the original fan added:
I "I also flat out asked to take a pic with Hopper's Blazer and the crew member said, "you don't see Hopper's Blazer, you won't tell anyone you saw Hopper's Blazer which you don't see, if you don't leave we will have you arrested. "
I "It's 100% a public place but I can be removed where I can't see anything even if I'm not charged with anything."
But when fans found out that this fan was asked to leave, they were furious. According to them, the fan was in a public place, which meant the fan had the right to be there. They believed that even if the filming crew requested people to leave, they can't force them.
On the other hand, some people are sympathising with the production team.
I "Ive been a PA on a Netflix production, they hate people taking photos or videos, period. Some sets don’t care, but I can imagine that especially on this franchise’s set, they dont want too many leaks."
I "Also, as a PA myself, please dont do this. If you sneak past us and get on set, we get chewed out and it could potentially lead to us not being asked back to set."
I "Definitely don’t push it, those clauses in the NDA’s that film crews sign are sometimes more strict and scary than what the US government has you sign. If they feel you’re a significant monetary threat they could sue you and potentially arrest you if the public property is leased. Though the footage you got has me really excited."
Stranger Things season 4 is expected to start shooting early next year in January 2020 with the main cast. Stranger Things season 1-3 is available to stream on Netflix now.
