If ya think about it, this makes sense, as the Byers family and Eleven moved away from Hawkins in the season three finale, and as we saw in the mid-credits scene, an American prisoner who could very well be the thought-to-be-dead Hopper is in a cell in Russian Federation with a Demogorgon very nearby. And more than 18 million had already finished the eight episodes of Season 3 by Monday.
If you're reading this story, you know that Season 3 of the Netflix phenom opened the door to the possibility that the presumed dead Hopper may actually be alive and well-ish in Russian captivity, setting up a potential fourth season to revolve around his extraction. So Hasbro Gaming has released a Stranger Things-themed Dungeons & Dragons starter kit, including dice, a rulebook, an adventure book with a drawing of Will the Wise, character sheets, and two Demogorgon figurines.
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. It's available at Hasbro, game shops, and on Amazon.More news: France says Javelin missiles found in Libya were 'unusable' - army ministry
