'Stranger Things' is One of the Most Popular Shows on Netflix

Netflix's Stranger Things is more popular than Daredevil and Making a Murder.

Netflix's newest original series Stranger Things, is now one of the most popular shows on the streaming platform. Unless you have been hiding under a rock the last couple of weeks, everyone is is talking about the sci-fi series right now. But, according to a new report, Stranger Things is actually more popular than Daredevil and Making a Murderer.  According to Digital Spy, 8.2 million people streamed Stranger Things within its first 16 days of release, meaning that it had more viewers than Daredevil, Jessica Jones, House of Cards and Narcos. All of which are extremely popular on Netflix. In addition, only two series managed to land more viewers than the Atlanta filmed sci-fi series; the first season of Fuller House and Orange is the New Black season 4. But what makes Stranger Things different is that Stranger Things is an original series featuring relatively unknown actors, while Fuller House and Orange is the New Black already have a reputation and fan club. This news comes after Netflix CEO announced that it would be "dumb" not to do a second season of Stranger Things. Reed Hastings added that Netflix takes popular opinion into account when deciding what shows to reboot, remake, or create. Hastings told The Guardian that its user ratings on IMDb make it clear that fans are heavily invested in the show.

In the Netflix series Stranger Things, a family and town are rocked after a 12-year-old boy, Will, goes missing. His mother, Joyce, his brother and friends continue to seek answers, along with the town’s chief of police. Along the way, they encounter a girl with special abilities sparking an adventure and mystery.
