It looks like Netflix’s latest release of Stranger Things has been a massive success, as they have just reported on their official Twitter page that the series has become their biggest premiere weekend ever for an English language TV show on the service. It was now reached 286.79 million hours viewed worldwide and has been in the top spot in 83 countries, which is another premiere weekend for the streaming service.
It certainly is one of Netflix’s strongest series and has been one of their most iconic since the introduction of the Netflix Marvel shows, as it came from that same era. Sadly, the show will be ending with its upcoming fifth season and it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll find an English show that can fill the void it’ll leave behind.
They have some high-quality productions on the horizon, such as a live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender and One Piece, which are big enough IPs to potentially take the top spot. So, we’ll see if they potentially will explore some spinoffs from Stranger Things as well once the main cast leaves the show behind to further venture into the Upside-Down.
