With its usual "more 80s than the 80s" aesthetic, this season of Stranger Things continues its excursion into the tropes back catalogue, picking out Terminator, evil Russians, Magnum PI, and not-so-subtle product placement for New Coke. This time around the tie-ins are bigger than ever, covering everything from Baskin Robbins sundaes to Polaroid cameras to the brief return of New Coke.
Stranger Things Season 4 is all anyone can think about, especially since Stranger Things 3 dropped last week and if you are anything like me, you binged it all as quickly as humanly possible.
One of the most successful Netflix original series has been "Stranger Things".
On Monday, Netflix (NFLX) tweeted that more than 40.7 million household accounts have been watching the third season of the hit show since its debut, breaking a four-day streaming record for the platform. If you can't wait that long, you can relieve the wait with the Monopoly Stranger Things Collector's Edition Board Game. The season is the blockbuster movie we've all been waiting for during this lackluster summer, and it had the courtesy to show up in our own home! Camp Know Where launches July 20, and you can register at Microsoft's website.
The production costs of "Stranger Things" went up a lot for the third season.
How do you feel about the Duffer Brothers' statements on the next season of Stranger Things? As we said, it's pretty obvious all these things are on the table considering how the season ended. That's sort of where we are in season four.
Matt Duffer spoke to Entertainment Weekly, saying the next season will open things up a little, allowing the story to go into different areas outside the town of Hawkins. This includes the apparent death of David Harbour's Sheriff Jim Hopper and the mid-credits scene set in a Russian military base, where an "American" is being kept prisoner and the military is feeding inmates to a Demogorgon. Hopefully, if season 4 does take place (and it very well should) that will be one of the things explored.
