Stranger Things Season 3 Breaks Netflix Streaming Record

Stranger Things 3 is now Netflix’s most watched show over four days, the streaming service has confirmed.

According to editors at Deadline, the nostalgia heavy horror series, set in the fictional town of Hawkins during the summer of 1985, and starring Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder and David Harbour, is the new Netflix four-day streaming champion.

The third instalment of the show, which debuted in 2016, has been watched by 40.7 million household accounts since its July 4 launch — more than any other film or series in its first four days. And 18.2 million have completely finished the entire season, the streaming service confirmed on Monday.

Stranger Things’ Season 2 debut episode averaged 15.8 million U.S. viewers two years ago.

The data crunchers also said all of the new episodes averaged four million viewers and three million in the streaming services demo, which it began tracking two years ago, saying “a significant viewing event occurred.”
