At the end of the month, the show is well on its way to becoming the most-watched English series of all time on the streaming site. As for the non-English programming, Stranger Things will be competing with Squid Game which recorded a whopping 1.65 billion hours viewed in the first 28 days, as per Deadline. The second Volume of the fourth season is coming on July 1 and we may see a spike in views leading up to its release as well.

In the latest season of the show, the Hawkins gang is up against their latest enemy, Vecna, who is preying on traumatized teens in the town. We follow several parallel developments as Eleven struggles with the loss of her powers, Joyce and Murray are doing everything in their power to bring Hopper back, and the Upside Down is more active than ever.
