The premiere of the last two episodes of the series made it the most popular English-language series on the streaming service. Within the first 28 days of each part's release, the show has racked up over one billion hours of viewing time. The first seven episodes of the show had a viewing time of over one billion hours. In the week of June 27th to July 3rd, episodes 8 and 9 were viewed more than 200 million times.

That makes the series second only to Squid Game, which is currently the most watched show in the history of the company. It's only a few days since the last two episodes came out, so it's possible that it could overtake the Korean hit.

It's not yet known if the popularity of Stranger Things has had an effect on its subscriber numbers. The company said it had its best subscriber growth of the year in the third quarter thanks to Squid Game. In April of this year, the company admitted that it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2022. We will have to wait for the company's next earnings report to find out if Eleven and the rest of the crew were helpful.
