The cast of Stanger Things, which includes Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown, have resumed filming on series four of the hit sci-fi drama following a six-month break enforced by the pandemic. 

Production was halted in March as the coronavirus outbreak swept across the world, all but closing down Hollywood.

In a sign of recovery for the entertainment industry, filming on the hugely popular series is back underway, reportedly in Georgia.

Netflix's official Twitter account shared the news, posting a Stranger Things clapperboard and writing: "Today in Hawkins..."

Hawkins is the fictional Indiana small town where the show takes place. It had previously been revealed actor David Harbour will return for the fourth series, after his character Jim Hopper was presumed dead at the end of the third run.

Stranger Things, set in the 1980s, follows the attempts made by a group of teenagers and adults as they try to battle an evil monster - who comes from the underworld known as the Upside Down - in their home town.

The cast includes Winona Ryder, Millie Bobby Brown, Natalia Dyer,  Charlie Heaton, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Noah Schnapp and Gaten Matarazzo.

Netflix are yet to confirm a release date for series four.
