Stranger Things S4 in the Works – What we Know So Far

Production resumed in January 2021.

Published

on

The fact that my ‘Stranger Things’ sweater from the third season of the show’s promotional merch is starting to look worn out is a tell tale sign we’ve waited long enough for our fave Hawkins, Indiana boys to come back.

Still, it’s hard to believe a whole two years has gone by since season 3 of the popular teen drama series premiered on Netflix. The coronavirus has really disrupted the flow of things, and production delays have meant some of our favourite shows will take longer than usual to film.

Fans of ‘Stranger Things’ can, however, rest assured that the show is definitely on its way back with a fourth season. And while the wait has already been long enough, it’s unlikely that the cast will come back as middle aged parents because decades have gone by.

In fact, the new season is currently being filmed as we speak. According to i-d, the cast resumed production as of January this year. The news were confirmed by Caleb McLaughlin, who stars on the show as Lucas Sinclair.

They are shooting the show under some strict coronavirus protocols, however, which has changed how things are typically done. Amongst many of these, revealed McLaughlin in an interview with Flaunt Magazine, is how the limit on gatherings means episodes are being filmed in an irregular sequence.

“If there’s a scene with extras, we can’t film with everyone right now”, he said. “We have to only film scenes where there are fewer people, so we have to start from a later episode. We won’t start at episode one, we will start at episode five.”

That said, there are no dates confirmed around the return of the show.

Money Heist Season 5 Release Date Revealed!

Money Heist Season 5 sees a robbery turn into all-out-war!

Money Heist Season 5 Release Date Revealed

The final instalment of Money Heist A.K.A La Casa de Papel is upon us and fans can be pardoned for being a ball of emotions. Coming to grips with the fact that season 5 will be the last chapter, getting closure alone will be a lot to deal with without getting into the drama in the show.

Netflix revealed the release date of part 5 of the drama series, predicted to break its previous record of being the most-watched non-English title on the streaming service. Last season drummed up a whopping 65 million views and it is estimated to reach nine figures on its last hurdle.

When is the release date of Money Heist season 5 on Netflix?

Season 5 of Money Heist will be release it two volumes, volume 1 of part 5 scheduled to drop in September 3 on Netflix. Volume 2 will premier three month later on December 3. Each part will comprise of five episodes. The release date was confirmed on Netflix’s official twitter account.

What Happened on Money Heist Season 4 Finale?

We left things off with the gang trapped inside Madrid’s Bank of Spain. The heat turns up for The Professor in the finale after being apprehended by Sierra. While the last couple of seasons have proven how resourceful Salva is at getting himself out of a sticky situation, it will be interesting to see how he manoeuvres out of this one.

The mastermind of the heist has already managed to pull off a miracle and rescue Lisbon, but is at wits end when Sierra discovers his secret hideout. Did someone say deja vu?

The rest of the gang, aptly named after popular cities from around the world, also find themselves in a furnace of fury as the military is called in and a war ensues.

Netflix Money Heist Season 5

We can’t forget the about Nairobi’s sacrifice, and all of the fallen soldiers that have coloured the crime drama with their charismatic personalities. It remains to be seen if there will be any other casualties going forward…but as the saying goes, its all fair in love and war!

Check out the teaser to get a glimpse of what to expect on Money Heist season 5.

How Cape Town Made Bruce Lee’s dream come True with Warrior

And there are already plans for a season 3.

Published

on

Cape Town doubles for a lawless 1870s San Francisco in the kick-ass martial arts action series Warrior, which now has two seasons available to binge on Showmax.

Warrior is based on a concept that Bruce Lee pitched to Hollywood in 1971. His pitch was unsuccessful – the studio execs didn’t think they could sell an Asian leading man! – and the legendary martial arts icon died two years later, his vision unfulfilled.

Bruce’s daughter, Shannon Lee, finally brought it to life in 2019, executive producing Warrior alongside the likes of The Fast and The Furious director Justin Lin and series creator Jonathan Tropper, who brought us the Emmy-winning action drama Banshee.

Set during the Californian Tong Wars of the 1800s, the story centres on Chinese immigrant and martial arts prodigy Ah Sahm, who comes to San Francisco to search for his sister, only to find himself sold to one of the most powerful tongs (gangs) in Chinatown.

Season 2 has a 100% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes and was up for Best Action Series and Best Actor at the 2021 Critics Choice Super Awards, as well as for a 2021 Visual Effects Society Award. Inverse hailed Warrior as “the most underrated action series of the century” while Vox proclaimed, “Warrior feels like if Peaky Blinders starred Bruce Lee and was set in 1870s Chinatown. It’s great.”

Andrew Koji (Fast & Furious 6) leads the ensemble cast as Ah Sahm, the role Bruce Lee envisioned for himself. Olivia Cheng (The StandDeadly Class), Jason Tobin (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and the upcoming Fast & Furious 9), Dianne Doan (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Good TroubleVikings) and Hoon Lee (BansheeBoschMulan) also star, along with South Africa’s own Langley Kirkwood (InconceivableThe Mauritanian), whose role as the Machiavellian deputy mayor, Buckley, was highlighted as one of the show’s standout characters by The Ringer. 

The South African cast also includes SAFTA nominees Robert Hobbs (The Girl From St Agnes, District 9) and Jacques Bessenger (DwaalsterKrotoaKanarie), Fleur du Cap winners Nicholas Pauling (Troy: Fall of a CityThe Dark Tower) and Emily Child (Tali’s Baby Diary, The Pervert Laura), and familiar faces like David Butler (SerenityBlack SailsWild at Heart) and Kenneth Fok (RogueFive Fingers for Marseilles).

Shot at Cape Town Film Studios with Moonlighting, both seasons of Warrior relied on South Africa’s world-class crews, like two-time Emmy-nominated costume designer Diana Cilliers (RootsThe GirlDistrict 9), who worked with Moira Anne Meyer (The Hurt Locker); SAFTA-nominated makeup supervisor Marli Kruger (The Watch); and special effects supervisor Mickey Kirsten (TenetSpider-Man: Far From HomeUnknown). The new season was filmed entirely by three South African cinematographers: Emmy nominee Michael Snyman (The Night ManagerGettysburg), Trevor Brown (The WatchStrike Back) and SAFTA winner Giulio Biccari (Noughts + Crosses, Da Vinci’s Demons).

HBO’s corporate reshuffle last year – and the news that subsidiary network Cinemax will no longer produce original content – had fans worried for Warrior’s future, with good reason in the current climate. Happily, last month HBO Max renewed the hit show for a third season. Lee welcomed the news, saying, “I just know that my father is grinning right now to see this show he dreamed of so long ago continuing to beat the odds.”

And it’s especially good news for South Africa’s pandemic-ravaged film industry, because Tropper has hinted they’ll be coming back to shoot here. “Our Chinatown backlot is still standing in Cape Town,” Tropper said in a recent interview with Inverse. “It will need significant refurbishment, but it’s there.”

And the best news yet? Tropper says Warrior has plans for stories beyond Season 3, saying it would be “way too much work to pull this all back together for one season.”
