Stranger Things season 4 is in the limelight for an unexpected reason, as leaked images of cards from a tie-in Monopoly board game spoiled key plot elements ahead of its May 27 debut on Netflix, according to a report. The Monopoly Stranger Things game can be “fairly purchased” from a “national retailer”, according to a Reddit thread dedicated to the leak. While unconfirmed, the fact remains that several retailers are advertising merchandise based on previous Stranger Things seasons to capitalize on the brand’s popularity.


According to the Hollywood Reporter’s report – which cites a source familiar with the series – the Monopoly board game Stranger Things 4 was accidentally given the green light primarily due to “the scale and expanse of the Stranger Things franchise’s world.” “.

Stranger Things creators, the Duffer Brothers and Netflix are, unsurprisingly, unhappy with the leak. In fact, the Duffer Brothers reportedly had a “total meltdown” after the debacle, as they wanted to keep the plot details of Stranger Things 4 under wraps until the series premiered. They also apparently weren’t consulted during the development of the game.

Interestingly, Season 4 of Stranger Things isn’t the first title to be marred by merch. The Star Wars franchise faced a similar situation when the release of a Rey action figure with a lightsaber revealed a key plot detail from 2015’s space epic Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Such events are the reason why The Mandalorian Showrunner Jon Favreau didn’t allow makers to design a toy for the character of Baby Yoda – or Grogu, as you prefer – until after the series premiered.

Netflix could have taken a similar approach for Stranger Things – and it could still do so for the fifth and final season – but it is true that it hurts sales and allows third parties to profit, as was the case with The Mandalorian for several months.

Season 4 of Stranger Things is supposed to be “bigger and better” than the previous ones. In fact, director Shawn Levy recently revealed that he’s got longer episodes than his two Ryan Reynolds films, comedy Free Guy and sci-fi adventure The Adam Project. The Duffer Brothers hinted at this much earlier, noting that Stranger Things 4 episodes are “very, very long.”

The first five episodes of Stranger Things season 4 will be released on Netflix on May 27, three years after the final season aired, with the remaining four arriving on July 1.
