Stranger Things season 4 emerged as the most popular TV series on Netflix in 2022, according to the streaming service’s list of top shows. After three years since season 3, Stranger Things season 4 was finally released on Netflix. The longest interval between seasons of Stranger Things prior to the most recent episode was the two-year gap between seasons 2 and 3. The Covid-19 epidemic caused a number of production issues for Stranger Things season 4, which caused the series to delay its release before making a hugely successful Netflix premiere.
Netflix has revealed its list of the “Most Popular TV In 2022,” and Stranger Things season 4 came in first. The latest season of Stranger Things featured the introduction of Vecna, the show’s terrifying antagonist, who helped the series gain widespread attention on social media. With 19 weeks spent in the Top 10 on Netflix, Stranger Things tops the list. Wednesday, a brand-new series that may have won the top position had it debuted earlier than November 23, is close behind in second place. The short series Inventing Anna, the return of Bridgerton season 2, and the event series Dahmer complete the top five.
Is there any show that can surpass Stranger Things?
Unquestionably, Stranger Things has established itself as Netflix’s most popular property, and the season 4 ratings reflect this. The cast and crew of Stranger Things season 5, which will be the series’ final season, are already hard at work, but the data for Netflix’s top television shows in 2022 has already chosen a deserving successor in the shape of the new spooky series Wednesday. Wednesday hopes to surpass Wednesday as the most-watched English-language Netflix series by the time Stranger Things season 4 finishes in 2022.
Based on The Addams Family series, Wednesday features Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams. In the sinister series, Wednesday investigates a murder mystery involving a creature that is killing people near her school. Due to Wednesday’s characteristically emotionless personality, many of the show’s scenes went viral on social media. This helped Wednesday break Stranger Things’ record for the most English-language television episodes watched in a week on Netflix, totaling 341.2 million hours to the latter’s 335.1 million. Both programs competed for the title of most-watched English-language series on Netflix, with the Millie Bobby Brown program winning with little over 100 million hours watched.
