‘Stranger Things’ season 4 failed to beat ‘The Squid Game’ to become the second most watched Netflix series of all time

It’s been nearly a month since Stranger Things season 4 hit Netflix, and the show isn’t about to stop as it continues to reign supreme on the streaming platform. The fourth edition of the sci-fi thriller took a different path this time around and was much darker than previous editions. This is one of the reasons Season 4 is so loved by viewers who keep the show at number one in many countries.

According to the latest figures, the current season of Stranger Things has broken another record for most views and is the second most viewed series of all time on the streaming platform. Yes, you heard right. Less than a month after its long-awaited premiere, the series racked up 781.04 million hours watched in its first 28 days of release. In the process, the series overtook the second season of Bridgerton to become the most watched English-language series of all time. It currently ranks #1 in 93 countries.

In April 2022, it was announced that the second season of Bridgerton had 656.26 million hours watched in its first 28 days of release, and peaked at number one in 92 countries. It’s no surprise that Stranger Things eclipsed Bridgerton on the list, because the Netflix sci-fi show nearly hit midpoint on its opening weekend.

The show had 159.24 million watch hours last week and topped the streaming platform. Interestingly, Stranger Things seasons 1, 2 and 3 are also in the top ten in the world.

While Stranger Things season 4 managed to break several viewing records, the show failed to surpass The Squid Game to become the most watched Netflix series of all time. Korean drama is still the most popular series on the streaming platform. The first season racked up 1.65 billion hours in its first 28 days of release and was watched by over 142 million families in its first four weeks of launch. The Korean drama has been officially renewed for a second season, and fans were already expecting it to break its own viewership records once it was released on Netflix.

As for Stranger Things, the show will return for the final two episodes of Season 4 on July 1st. Viewers are very curious about what will happen in Hawkins in the last two episodes. The teaser for Volume 2 revealed that Nancy is safe for now and her friends have come to save her from Vecna’s wrath. However, things look very bleak for the entire gang, because Vecna ​​is in no mood to stop.

The only hope for the entire gang is Eleven, who, fortunately, has regained her strength. It will be interesting to see Eleven return to save his friends from the devil. The season finale will run at 2 hours and 19 minutes, making it the longest episode in the show’s history. With the success of Volume 1, we can expect Volume 2 to show impressive numbers as well.

Will he be able to challenge the “Squid Game”? Well, let’s wait and see.
