It finally happened, another series knocked Stranger Things season 4 off the #1 spot on Netflix’s top 10 list after nearly a month there.
That series is the season 3 of The Umbrella Academy, Netflix’s hyper-successful superhero series about an odd band of brothers and sister dealing with time travel paradoxes upon their return.
The part 2 of the season will air on July 1 which will no doubt propel it to #1 again for a period of time. Right now, the show is slowly inching toward Squid Game’s viewership record, but it will need those final two episodes to perform even better than the previous seven if it hopes to catch it.
Regardless, Stranger Things season 4 has set all manner of English-language records for the service, and even if Netflix often sees conversations about its series fade after a week or weekend, that really has not happened with Stranger Things, given the short gap between part 1 and part 2, and “cultural moments” being created out of the first seven episodes, like how Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill is now charting #1 globally after 30+ years due to its use in the one of the season’s best moments.
Also, the next season of The Umbrella Academy can be the last season of the show
