The crew of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things was in Vilnius filming part of
the show’s fourth season. The shooting took place at locations around the Lithuanian
capital, including the recently closed century-old former prison. Director Shawn
Levy hinted at the mysterious ‘American.’

February 17, 2020 – Vilnius, Lithuania. Season four of the critically acclaimed
Stranger Things was being shot in Vilnius, Lithuania. Preparations for the
production started last November and filming ended on 14 February.

The crew, along with some of the show’s fan-favourite actors, have been busy filming
episodes for the upcoming season, which still has no official release date. The show
was filmed at the former century-old Lukiškes Prison and other locations in
Lithuania.

The prison, which was built and began holding inmates in the early 1900s, just
ceased operations last year. During the tumultuous 20^th century in Vilnius,
interchanging regimes – including Imperial Russia, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany,
and finally, independent Lithuania – all used the structure as a prison.

While working in Vilnius, the show’s Director Shawn Levy remarked, “From the start,
Stranger Things has been inspiring all of us lucky enough to work on it. My
adventure here in Lithuania in bringing the reveal of the ‘American’ to life has
been a huge challenge but an even bigger inspiration, and we are so thankful to the
city of Vilnius and the beautiful country of Lithuania for their hospitality. The
Duffers and I have been working alongside the brilliant Netflix team for months to
pull off this surprise. All the hard work was worth it, however, to bring our
fans—the greatest fans in the world—this epic reveal they’ve been hoping and waiting
for. And this is only the beginning.”

Vilnius is becoming an increasingly popular shooting destination among filmmakers
globally. Other hit shows like HBO’s Chernobyl, and Netflix’s Young Wallander and
Tokyo Trial were also shot in Vilnius in recent years. The city is attracting
high-profile productions due to its multifaceted history, ability to provide
backdrops representing different historical periods, and a highly skilled film
industry workforce.

“The fact that cult series like Stranger Things keep choosing Vilnius as a filming
destination is a testament to the city’s many-sided nature. The cinema world finds
Vilnius to be open, green, easy to get around while being historic and modern at the
same time – all the qualities that Vilnius locals love their city for. The ability
to transform the city is what attracts filmmakers the most,” added the Mayor of
Vilnius Remigijus Šimašius.

 

“From Russia With Love…”
“We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway — and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper! Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….
Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime — pray for the American.”
From Russia with love,
The Duffer Brothers
