Stranger Things Season 4 is still a significant amount of time away from the release date but interesting speculations and leaks don't wait for things like release date when a show is this popular.
The fourth season of the show has already been confirmed but questions from even the Season 3 have been bugging fans, especially after the post-credits scene showed a Hopper-like character alive, any debate about Stranger Things Season 4 in just isn't complete without that question.

The Duffer Brothers have previously spoken about their plans for season 4. In an interview with Vulture in 2017, they suggested that they will end it after four seasons.
The season 4 had been confirmed in 2017 itself when the Duffer Brothers said in an interview that they will end the show after four seasons but producer Shawn Levy later sparked hope for another season 5 saying enthusiasm from Netflix and its child stars may well have convinced them.
"The truth is we're definitely going four seasons and there's very much the possibility of a fifth," Levy said. "Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely."
Another season after the fourth seems very likely because Netflix would want to hold on to the army of fans that come with Stranger Things, especially after the increased competition.
Considering that the shooting of Stranger Things Season 4 is yet to start we can expect a release date of late 2020 or early 2021. But there's also a piece of good news, Millie Bobby Brown (who plays Eleven on the show) confirmed on her Instagram that shooting for fourth season would begin "soon! early this year for sure".
The showrunners would want to release it in or before holidays to boost viewership and also because there was a reference to the Byers and the Wheelers spending Christmas together in the finale of third season. So December 2020 remains the best hope.
Although there were a few deaths in season 3, most of the main cast including Millie Bobby Brown's Eleven, Finn Wolfhard's Mike, Winona Ryder's Joyce, Noah Schnapp's Will, Caleb Mclaughlin's Lucas, Gaten Matarazzo's Dustin, Natalia Dyer's Nancy, Charlie Heaton's Jonathan, Maya Hawke's Robin and Joe Keery (Steve) are expected to be back for Stranger Things Season 4.
Some new characters are expected to pitch in and we might see some of the old dead characters as well in the flashbacks which are speculated by many due to all the "Hopper talks".
Stranger Things Season 4 will have answers to our questions regarding Hopper's death and detention of Demogorgon but can also open up new possibilities about Eleven and Mike.
