LOS ANGELES (Reuters): The latest season of Netflix Inc s (NFLX.O) “Stranger Things” has pushed total viewership for the series to more than 1.15 billion hours.
The science-fiction drama starring Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown has become the most popular English-language series on Netflix. The only other Netflix show to cross 1 billion viewing hours is South Korean drama “Squid Game.”
“Stranger Things” also hit #1 on Netflix s Top 10 lists in 91 countries, a first for an English-language TV series, the company said.
The show s fourth season concluded with the final two episodes released last week, briefly crashing the Netflix app as fans rushed to view it. The series debuted in 2016.
