New Stranger Things season breaks Netflix viewing records

  1. In a tweet sent out yesterday, Netflix revealed that 40.7 million household accounts watched Stranger Things 3 since it launched on July 4—more than any other film or series in its first four days.

    Last month brought news that the Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston-starring movie ‘Murder Mystery’ had the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix original, having been watched by around 30.9 million accounts in its first three days. But while Sandler’s movie wasn't universally loved, Stranger Things 3 has received praise from critics and viewers alike.

    Netflix counts someone as viewing a program if they watch at least 70 percent of that title. The company has had some huge hits in recent times, including Bird Box, which has been watched by over 80 million people; Triple Frontier, which attracted 52 million viewers in its first month of release, and The Umbrella Academy, which brought 45 million views in its first four weeks.

    While there’s been no official confirmation of a fourth season, it's almost certain that Stranger Things will return, especially given the latest season's post-credits scene. Back in November, David Harbour, who plays police chief Jim Hopper, told CNET that "we're either going to season four or season five.”

    If you’re a fan of Stranger Things and 80s-style anime, check out the video below from animation studio Humouring the Fates, which merges the two into a very cool trailer.

    I watched it over 2 days, was let down by my fiancée otherwise it would have been done in one night, it was a good season, probably better than season 2 :)

    Finished Season 3 not long ago. Binge watched it with my girlfriend from start to finish, 8 hour marathon haha.

    We both enjoyed it very much. Great pacing, good character developments, some of the humours/jokes had us laughing out loud. Great mixture of action, good use of music, love the 80s vibe & atmosphere. It was sad to see Hopper go.... El/Jane was just so badass!

    Overall another excellent season. Looking forward to Season 4 when it comes out. :)

    I'm glad it did well, but I felt it was the weakest season yet.
    S1 hooked me like a drug. S2 felt a bit sloppier but still had lots of great stuff. S3 just felt sluggish and off. The main story didn't really go anywhere until episode 4, and while I thought the last episode was fantastic, there were a lot of filler episodes that went nowhere.
    Still looking forward to S4 though.
