Stranger Things’s fourth season has become the second original title in Netflix’s history to surpass 1 billion hours viewed in the first four weeks of release.
Before this, the only series to have earned this distinction was the Korean thriller Squid Game.
Squid Game still holds the record for the most hours viewed within 28 days of release, having amassed a staggering 1.65 billion hours, per Netflix’s own metrics.
With 1.15 billion total hours viewed within its first 28 days of availability, Stranger Things 4 has become the first English-language series to pass the milestone.
Stranger Things’s fourth season was released in two batches, with the first arriving on the streaming service in June.
Last Friday (1 July), the final two episodes of the season dropped on Netflix.
