People Watched 7 Billion Minutes Of ‘Stranger Things’ After Season 4 Release, Breaking Record

Stranger Things Season 4

Stranger Things racked up 7.2 billion minutes of streaming viewership in the U.S. from May 30 to June 5, after the fourth season premiered on May 27, Nielsen said Friday, the highest one-week total since the company began tracking data two years ago.

The show also set a two-week record, with 12.34 billion minutes watched between May 23 and June 5.

As the final two episodes of season four were released at 3 a.m. on Friday, fans briefly crashed Netflix’s platform.

In May, Nielsen said Stranger Things had joined two other shows, Tiger King and Ozark, ins surpassing 5 billion viewership minutes in a week. The latter two surpassed that benchmark in March 2020, as coronavirus lockdowns were first set in. Nielsen previously said most of Stranger Things’ premiere-week viewership came from the fourth season. Netflix reported that Stranger Things 4 broke several internal records, including the largest opening weekend for an English-language show and the largest viewership for an English-language show in its first 28 days on the platform.
