Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1 had 335.01 million hours of viewing in its first week, propelling it to #3 on Netflix’s all-time list for English-language series, with 621.80 million hours seen in ten days. Stranger Things is expected to move to the top of the list, which counts viewership during a season’s first 28 days on the service, with only Bridgerton Season 1 (625M) and Bridgerton Season 2 (656M) ahead of it.
Only blockbuster Squid Game, with 1.65 billion hours seen in the first 28 days, stands in the way of the sci-fi series finishing at least second on Netflix’s overall all-time list for English- and non-English programs.
Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1 was the most viewed English-language TV season on Netflix in a single week from May 30-June 5, and it was the first English TV series to top the Top 10 rankings in 91 countries.
Stranger Things swept to the top of Netflix’s English-language TV list this week. Season 1 came in second with 75.08 million hours watched, Season 2 came in third with 58.27 million hours watched, and Season 3 came in fourth with 47.42 million hours watched. Breakout with 42.5 million hours viewed, The Lincoln Lawyer was the most-watched non-Stranger Things title at #5.
