Stranger Things is one of those shows where you don’t know if you’ll like it, but then you see it, and if you like it, you tell someone else to watch it, and they tell someone, and on and on until it becomes a phenomenon. And it indeed did, as the horror show on Netflix that was full of 80’s nostalgia truly captured the minds and fears of its viewers. So, when Stranger Things Season 02 was confirmed, and premiered, many wondered if it would still capture peoples hearts and minds.
Uh…turns out to be yes. And not just yes, but emphatically yes. As 15.8 million people have watch the premiere of Season 02. Think about that. 15.8 million, there are primetime TV shows that don’t get that kind of attention.Yet, Stranger Things did. The average views per episode is around 8.8 million, and recall, it just came out last week, so a lot of people are tuning in to watching it.
And, as this is Netflix, there have been many people binging it. Including 350,000+ people binging the whole season in just the first 24 hours.
Needless to say, it looks VERY likely that the show will get a third season, hopefully that’ll get confirmed too.
