Research: 'Stranger Things' Driving New And Return Subscribers For Netflix 07/11/2019

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are streaming now on Netflix. Netflix's biggest cash cow has proven the streaming platform can make a show without the backing of a major studio like they had with House of Cards or Orange is the New Black.

Assuming Stranger Things is renewed for a season four (which somehow isn't official yet), the show will be expanding to other places in the world, according to creators and EPs the Duffer Brothers in a new EW interview.

Netflix has yet to confirm if a season four of the sci-fi series is on the horizon, but actor David Harbour, who plays police Chief Jim Hopper on the show, told CNET Magazine a year ago that the series would continue for at least four seasons.

"Stranger Things Monopoly" comes in retro-flavored packaging.

"Evidently, the original idea was to end the show after five seasons, but that seems to have been scrapped as so the whole "kids vs evil" hook can stay "kids vs evil" and not "young adults vs evil" if you know what I mean", the site explains.

Spoilers for the end of season three, of course. Now that the third season has come and gone, things have changed in so many ways it's a little overwhelming. As we said, it's pretty obvious all these things are on the table considering how the season ended. So Hasbro Gaming has released a Stranger Things-themed Dungeons & Dragons starter kit, including dice, a rulebook, an adventure book with a drawing of Will the Wise, character sheets, and two Demogorgon figurines. Stranger Things Collector's Edition Monopoly is coming, and the game will let you play as one of Eleven's beloved Eggos, Police Chief Jim Hopper's hat, an oh-so-'80s cassette tape, Max's skateboard, Steve's nail-filled baseball bat, and more.

The Stranger Things tie-in bar keeps getting raised. It's available at Hasbro, game shops, and on Amazon.
