Millie Bobby Brown defends Eleven and Mike's relationship in Stranger Things 3


Continuing the habit of packing the Netflix original series with Easter eggs in reference to beloved pop culture moments, Stranger Things 3 tips its hat to a myriad of movie classics.

Netflix released season three of "Stranger Things" on July 4 and since then it has been watched by 40.7 million household accounts, the company said. The streamer launched "Stranger Things" Season 3 on July 4 and saw record viewership in the first four days. This is where the record-breaking stat comes in. And 18.2 million have completely finished the entire season, the streaming service confirmed on Monday.

Back in 2016, the streaming giant reported that Stranger Things had stolen the hearts of viewers only by the second episode, with 70% of them moving on to finish the entire season. Netflix's Twitter account posted.

Netflix recently broke its movie record in June, when Jenifer Aniston and Adam Sandler starrer Murder Mystery fetched almost 30.9 million views in three days and now Stranger Things has managed to beat even that record. Netflix says that number is "more than any other film" or television series, "in its first four days". Not surprisingly, those numbers are big ones.

This week, Netflix announced some startling statistics. There are only eight new episodes - one shy of last season.

Matt and Ross Duffer created Stranger Things, which stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Noah Schnapp, and Joe Keery.

Season 2 of Stranger Things debuted in late October 2017, meaning fans have had to wait more than a year to revisit Hawkins, Indiana.
