This sci-fi horror series was reportedly viewed for over 287 million hours in the first three days of its release. According to Netflix's internal data, Stranger Things 4 has left Bridgerton season 2 and Bridgerton season 1 behind to gain the top spot, as the most-viewed English language series on the platform. Notably, the second part of the penultimate season — Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 — is yet to come and will be released on July 1.

According to Netflix's Top 10 charts, the first part of the penultimate season of Stranger Things has secured the top spot on the list of most-viewed English language shows in the first 28 days of their release. Now, Bridgerton season 2 and Bridgerton season 1 sit at the second and third spots, respectively.

Stranger Things 4 Review

Previously, Stranger Things 4 had broken another Netflix record held by Bridgerton Season 2, when it garnered over 287 viewed hours in the first week of its release. However, it was still unable to displace Squid Game with over 1.65 billion viewed hours as the most viewed — English or non-English — series on Netflix. The fifth season of Money Heist also narrowly edges out Stranger Things 4 with over 792 million viewed hours.

All eyes would be now on the Stranger Things Volume 2 which arrives globally on Netflix on July 1 at 12:30pm IST/ 12am PT. It includes two episodes with a combined run time of over four hours.

Stranger Things Volume 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
