Netflix Drama ‘Stranger Things 3′ Racks Up Record Viewership

Independent data on Stranger Things viewership cemented its status as one of Netflix’s biggest shows in previous seasons. Now, the streaming giant says the third season has racked up record viewership over its first four days. 

According to the company’s latest selective data dump, 40.7 million member accounts have watched at least part of Stranger Things‘ third season. (Netflix counts a “view” as a member account having watched 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a film.) That’s the fastest a Netflix original has ever accumulated such a large audience, according to the streamer.

Netflix also says 18.2 million member households have already finished the eight-episode season. Per usual, the streamer is not releasing data on the total number of viewers or average audience for a given episode.
