Mumbai, July 6 - Netflix has its second billion hours watched show as Stranger Things 4
has surpassed this rare milestone after the final two episodes.
The final two episodes dropped on July 1st as a part of Volume 2 of "Stranger Things 4" helped the show to pull in another 301.2 million viewing hours last week, including approx. 220 million watched hours of episodes 8 & 9. The total watched hours of this sci-fi horror drama series has now reached 1.15 billion.
"Stranger Things 4" is the most-watched only show on Netflix and the second most for any language. It is also only the second show ever to cross 1 billion viewing hours on Netflix, after Korean global hit "Squid Game", which clocked 1.6 billion watched hours in its first 28 days.
The Duffer Brothers-created series was the most-watched show for the week (June 27 - July 3) and it is only expected to rise over the next three and a half weeks. However, "Squid Game's" record is looking like a far cry as "Stranger Things 4" is unlikely to reach that target.
The season finale of ST4 is one of the most intense episodes yet of the series. It ended on an emotional note, leaving enough scope for the final season of the series to go bang bang. Duffer Brothers recently revealed in an interview that they will start writing the final season in September this year. It will start filming sometime next year and will be debuting in 2024.
The S4 of the series stars Millie Bobby Brown, Sadie Sink, Jamie Campbell Bower, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Brett Gelman, Matthew Modine, and Robert Englund in key roles.
