Stranger Things season 4 spoilers leaked due to tie-in monopoly game: report

Season 4 of Stranger Things is in the spotlight for an unexpected reason, as leaked images of cards from a Monopoly board game have spoiled key plot elements ahead of its May 27 debut on Netflix, a report has revealed. The Monopoly Stranger Things game is available to buy “fairly and honestly” from a “national retailer,” according to a Reddit thread dedicated to the leak. While this is unconfirmed, the fact remains that several retailers are promoting merchandise based on previous seasons of Stranger Things to capitalize on the brand’s popularity.

According to The Hollywood Reporter report – which cites a source close to the series – the Monopoly Stranger Things 4 board game was accidentally given the green light, largely because of the “sheer size and breadth of the Stranger Things franchise world.”

The creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer brothers and Netflix, are unsurprisingly unhappy about the leak. In fact, the Duffer brothers reportedly experienced a “total meltdown” after the debacle, as they wanted to keep the plot details of Stranger Things 4 under wraps until the show’s premiere. They were also reportedly not consulted during the development of the game.

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

Netflix could have taken a similar approach to Stranger Things – and it might do so for the fifth and final season – but admittedly it’s hurting sales and letting third parties benefit, as was the case with The Mandalorian For several months.

Season 4 of Stranger Things is being touted as “bigger and better” than the previous episodes. In fact, director Shawn Levy recently revealed that it will include some episodes longer than his two films starring Ryan Reynolds, comedy Free Guy and sci-fi adventure The Adam Project. The Duffer Brothers had hinted at this much earlier, noting that the episodes of Stranger Things 4 were “very, very long”.

The first five episodes of the fourth season of Stranger Things arrive on Netflix on May 27, three years after the last season aired, with the remaining four following on July 1.
