Meanwhile, an independent study Nielsen conducted in July – which did not take into account viewers on mobile, tablets and laptops – showed that 26.4 million unique viewers in the United States had watched Stranger Things season 3 in its first three days on the platform.

Netflix renewed Stranger Things for a fourth season in September. Fans believe that filming for season 4 has already started, while theories have begun to swirl around the new season: Some believe Millie Bobby Brown’s character Eleven might be the new villain, or that she will spark a disaster of nuclear proportions.
