Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer are now writing the fourth (and possibly final) season of their Netflix sci-fi drama, which ventures outside of fictional IN town Hawkins.

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are streaming now on Netflix.

The streaming giant tweeted on Monday that '40.7M accounts streamed Stranger Things season three over the July 4th weekend and 18.2M viewers binge-watched all eight episodes'.

But Stranger Things is set to smash that out of the park, as it's achieved that in a fraction of the time.

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 previous year that the series would continue for at least four seasons. 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! So without further ado, here are five of the weirdest items the Stranger Things marketing campaigns hath wrought.

Nintendo Announces US$199 Nintendo Switch Lite For The Budget Gamer
Nintendo notes that there will be support for all existing Switch titles, although some games will have restrictions. In terms of controls, the Switch Lite ditches the detachable Joy-cons in favor of a solid built-in controller setup.

You no longer have to wade through the Season 3 finale's entire runtime in order to watch Dustin and Suzie's spoilery duet to the epic tune. Though it hasn't officially been announced yet, they're interested in making it feel "very different" than season 3.

"It's not my fault you don't like girls", Mike Wheeler, played by Finn Wolfhard, yelled at Will, who wanted to play a game of Dungeons and Dragons instead of talk about their love lives.

If you have not yet started watching the new season of Stranger Things, this 80s-style anime is what you need to catch up on the first two seasons.

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, AKA Eleven, shared a video on the Netflix UK & Ireland Twitter page with all the details on what fans can expect.

The game will be available this fall for $39.99 and can be preordered now.
