The fourth season of the Netflix drama Stranger Things will be shot in Vilnius, several sources told BNS on Thursday.

The Lukiškės prison, which closed in summer 2019, is named as one of the filming locations. And although a contract with the TV series' creators has not yet been signed, active preparations are underway and equipment is being installed, the sources told BNS.

Several other unnamed locations in Lithuania have also been chosen to film the popular sci-fi show.

Vilnius Film Office, which is responsible for the film industry in Vilnius, has refrained from comments at the time.

Lithuania has attracted several high-profile productions due to tax exemptions and unique shooting locations. Last year, Netflix filmed its crime TV show Young Wallander in Vilnius, and America's HBO filmed its award winning mini-series Chernobyl in Vilnius and Visaginas.
