Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer says season 4 is "a while" away

  Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer says season 4 is "It's going to be really big."Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer doesn't want Netflix subscribers to get their hopes up about season 4 premiering anytime soon.

When Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) proposed to Charlotte (Kristen Davis) outside Tiffanys, it wasn't the real Tiffanys. The store wouldn't let them film for security reasons, so the set designers had to design a fake Tiffanys window. A Tiffanys employer still okayed it though.
