Stranger Things 4 becomes second Netflix show to hit 1 billion watch hours

Stranger Things 4The newest season of the hit show just became the second-ever Netflix show Over 1 billion watch hours. Since the season’s first installment dropped on May 27, viewers have spent 1.15 billion cumulative hours watching the season’s nine episodes, including 301 million hours last weekend. Which makes Stranger Things 4 The second most watched season on Netflix ever, next squid game in 2021. The company says it was in the top 10 on Netflix in 93 different countries this weekend. The show is so popular right now that it even boosts older seasons: all four Weird things Seasons were on the six most-watched Netflix shows over the weekend, just Umbrella Academy able to keep up.

Netflix viewership metrics The system is known to be strange and confusing. The service tracks how much a show was viewed in the first 28 days after its release, but those numbers vary widely based on how episodes are released, how long they are, and a host of other factors.

If anything, you can argue with that Weird things“Success only confirms how great it is.” squid game was really: Stranger Things 4 hours longer than squid game She has a months marketing strategy behind her, and squid game It still beats it With 1.65 billion watch hours. Weird things It can still be captured, though; Netflix’s numbers won’t count the first batch of episodes anymore, but the last two episodes still have a few weeks to capture the viewing hours. These episodes are also long – like feature films – which gives the show a better shot at the lead. (As I said, the analogy is confusing.)

So you shouldn’t read too much into the details other than to say with great confidence that the current season of Weird things very popular. She is also very good, preparing to complete next season. And it’s the kind of enduring franchise that Netflix has been desperate to build in recent years, so you should expect the company to keep making every stop to get people interested in what’s happening in Hawkins, Indiana.

So you can only assume that Stranger Things 5 It will be huge.
