Stranger Things Season 4 just set a new Netflix record

Stranger Things was always one of Netflix's biggest and most popular shows.

However, the first part of Season 4 is set to outdo both in its opening week alone.

According to the official Stranger Things account on Twitter, the series logged 286.79 million hours over the weekend and topped the charts in 83 countries.

Even if we expect a slight dip in viewership numbers over the coming days, the first seven episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 should beat Season 3's series-best 582 million hours over its first 28 days of release. 

We can expect the viewing numbers to be similar if not better when the last two episodes of Stranger Thing's penultimate season drop on July 1.
