According to information provided by Nielsen Streaming Top 10, Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 is the second most viewed streaming series (via Wrapper). Now Volume 2 is in second place with 5.9 billion minutes watched. It is second only to Stranger Things Season 4, Volume 1, which had 7.9 billion minutes watched when it premiered in late May.
In fact, Volume 2 even overtook the Netflix series Tiger King, which previously ranked second with 5.3 billion minutes watched. Unsurprisingly, both volumes of Stranger Things season 4 made these places on Nielsen’s list. The show has consistently received great reviews since it began in 2016 (via rotten tomatoes) and proved extremely popular on the streaming site.
Of course, in terms of minutes watched, one could also argue that the final season of Stranger Things had a slight advantage from the start. The first eight episodes of the season are over an hour long, while the 9th episode (“Container Shipping”) is nearly 2.5 hours long. Notably, the Duffer Brothers teased that while the series finale will also be feature-length again, they don’t expect it to reach its heights closer to season 4 (via Entertainment Weekly).
