You weren’t the only one who took a trip to Hawkins for the holiday weekend.
The fourth season of Stranger Things was watched for a total of 286.79 million hours over the three-day window, making it the biggest premiere weekend ever for an English language TV show on Netflix.
That’s a lot of nightmares about Vecna!
Stranger Things beat the previous record holder, the second season of Bridgerton, which amassed 193 million hours of watch time during its opening weekend in March. Over the course of its first month, Bridgerton became the most watched English-language Netflix series of all-time, with a grand total of 656.26 million hours worldwide.
The fourth season of Stranger Things should surpass that mark easily—especially because the final two episodes of the season aren’t coming until July 1.
In case you’re wondering, the most-viewed Netflix series overall (which includes foreign-language series) is the first season of breakout Korean hit Squid Game, which earned 1.65 billion hours of viewing over its first 28 days of release.
We’ll see if Stranger Things can catch up. Doubt Eleven at your own peril.
