The friends at the center of Stranger Things are going through the usual growing pains as the new season begins. Netflix's biggest cash cow has proven the streaming platform can make a show without the backing of a major studio like they had with House of Cards or Orange is the New Black.

Sure, fans might be hoping for more from Stranger Things, but while the show's cast and crew have been teasing that the series could probably run as many as five season, a report says that the next batch of episodes is going to be its last. On Monday, Netflix and Microsoft even teamed up to "bring back" Windows 1, the operating system released the same year (1985) in which Stranger Things is set. So without further ado, here are five of the weirdest items the Stranger Things marketing campaigns hath wrought.

One of the highlights of the series was the Scoops Troop - the crew consisting of Steve Harrington, Dustin Henderson, Maya Hawke, and Erica Sinclar - who spent the brunt of the season together at the Hawkins Mall's nautical-themed dessert shop trying to solve the mystery of a secret Russian code.

Not only has the show been wildly successful for the streaming service, but the show's creators, brothers Ross and Matt Duffer, have pretty much already figured out what they want to do with season four.

Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp believes his character Will Byers's sexuality is "up to the audience's interpretation".

Dungeons & Dragons may be the game of choice for the young heroes of Stranger Things, but only one board game truly captures the singular obsession of the 1980s: real estate. Of course if you haven't seen Stranger Things 3 yet, you should know that the entire thing is a spoiler for the Season 3 finale. It's available at Hasbro, game shops, and on Amazon.
