The fourth season of Stranger Things is finally releasing after a long wait, but just as we hate spoiled food, the audience is quite angry as Stranger Things has been unintentionally spoiled too.
As the prodigal series returns, the showrunners and creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, have turned upside-down by Monopoly. Yes, right, Stranger Things has been spoiled by Monopoly! Reports are that the brothers had a “total meltdown,” and Netflix has entered a new set of problems into their black hole of problems.
You can relax if you hate spoilers. There are no spoilers ahead.
How Did Monopoly Spoil Stranger Things?
As a part of a promotion, Netflix had merchandise made for Stranger Things. Monopoly game sets are one of them. However, the game sets had major plot points for the upcoming fourth season. Soon after buying, a Reddit user posted some pictures and created a thread with the pictures going viral.
When asked about the spoilers, a Reddit thread in support of the leak denied fault for those pictures, given that I bought the game legally from a legal store.
Nobody stole anything, and it couldn’t be known that there were spoilers as the game is sold everywhere when Netflix was aware of this fiasco and took the pictures down.
How Are The Duffer Brothers Doing?
The Duffers brothers were way more disappointed than Netflix. They conveyed that they did not know such merchandise was being sold. The Duffer brothers were supposedly not consulted about any game. They have always valued their secrecy, so this mishap has come as a shock.
Will This Change Anything?
Well, we hope not. There are a lot of people who enjoy something after getting spoilers. As for others, well, we can say that they can’t understand the story until you watch the whole thing and take down the spoilers. After a short period, we can say that too many have not seen those spoilers. As for the series, given its popularity, it most probably won’t be affected by this incident.
When Is Stranger Things Season 4 Releasing?
