Stranger Things could soon surpass Squid Game and become the most-watched Netflix series of all time. Variety reports that the series is now the second most-watched series on Netflix, with over a billion hours of viewing.
Stranger Things 4 is the latest Netflix series with more than a billion hours of watched. Since May 27, the season’s first episode aired, viewers have spent over 1.15 billion hours viewing all nine episodes, with 301 million watching the finale.
Squid Game was the only series to surpass the one billion hour mark. Stranger Things is on the verge of becoming Netflix’s biggest success and is not far behind. Recall that Stranger Things season 4 already holds the record for most-watched show in one week.

The creators have already released important information about Season 5, including details on the length of the episodes, in anticipation of the sequel. Fans can also expect a spin-off series. The Duffer Brothers stated that they have heard rumors of an Elf spinoff, a Steve or Dustin spinoff, and other issues. “It’s not interesting because we’ve all done this.
