Amazon’s Jeff Bezos binged Netflix’s Stranger Things. People are saying…

The Stranger Things Scoops Ahoy ice cream parlour

Ross Duffer told EW, "We have the big broad strokes".

Save for shows that actually aired during the 1980s, there are few TV series that can claim to have as much of a nostalgic effect as Stranger Things. Now that the third season has come and gone, things have changed in so many ways it's a little overwhelming.

Netflix released its own numbers for the third season of Stranger Things, declaring it an all-time hit, but now Nielsen metrics for US viewing say it reached 26.4 million unique viewers in the U.S.in its first four days.

Netflix has always been tight-lipped about its viewership numbers.

The latest set of Stranger Things episodes have proven to be quite popular with viewers, according to Netflix.

While the creators behind the sci-fi series are yet to confirm a release date of Stranger Things 4, it appears they're following a pattern.

In December, Nielsen revealed the top 20 most watched shows on Netflix. With its usual "more 80s than the 80s" aesthetic, this season of Stranger Things continues its excursion into the tropes back catalogue, picking out Terminator, evil Russians, Magnum PI, and not-so-subtle product placement for New Coke. The show's success since its 2016 debut has led to major pay raises for the main cast.

The locker room fight scene is a particular highlight (despite Erica's negotiating abilities almost stealing the show), congregating our young adventurers at the public pool in an attempt to entrap Billy, and figure out what's going on with him. Therefore, there are some people who believe that Netflix will end the show sooner rather than later.

But while the whole plot line of Eleven's "siblings" is being brushed under the carpet might not have been the wisest choice, the hope remains for Season Four to give this plotline the development it deserves and give the show the well-executed ending it deserves.

Cates (also a star of the "Stranger Things"-esque "Gremlins") is also later namechecked in the season - Dustin declares his mystery girlfriend Suzie is hotter than the actress - and a cardboard standee of the actress in her famed "Fast Times" red bikini can be spotted in the Family Video Store". Rounding out third is Season 2 with 10.9% of the vote. A fourth season has not been officially announced.
