On Wednesday, Stranger Things 4 surpasses the record for the most hours watched in a week -Newzflash

Wednesday celebrates a new record on Netflix, amassing a whopping 341.23 million hours watched during its debut week. On the streamer ranking for the period 21.-27. November, the supernatural show topped the TV list for an English-language series. With these numbers, the Jenna Ortega-led series has surpassed Stranger Things 4’s record – 335 million hours in one week – which still holds the title of the most watched Netflix English-language series in its first 28 days. Wednesday dropped Nov. 23 on the platform, meaning its record setting number was calculated over just a five-day period.

The current record holder internationally is the South Korean sensation Squid Game, which earned 571.8 million watch hours in its top week on Netflix. According to Netflix, Wednesday has been viewed in more than 50 million households, and is heading into the Top 10 of all 93 countries the streamer tracks — #1 in 83 countries. German mystery sci-fi 1899 followed close behind last week with 87.8 million hours in its second week, while The Crown Season 5 was knocked down in third place, collecting 42.3 million hours watched.

With Ortega at the helm, Wednesday follows the titular goth child of the Addams family, who is enrolled at Nevermore Academy, where she could be with people of her kind: outcasts, freaks and monsters. Between assignments and classes mastering psychic abilities, she suspects something is wrong with her new home – teaming up with a severed hand, preventing a monstrous killing spree, and solving the murder mystery that plagued her parents for 25 years ago. The eight-episode first season also features Catherine Zeta-Jones (The Terminal) and Luis Guzmán (Boogie Nights) in recurring roles as parents Morticia and Gomez Addams, respectively.

When it comes to lifetime ratings for an English-language show, Stranger Things 4 sits comfortably on top with 1.35 billion hours watched, followed in second place by Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story with 856.2 million hours. The Ewan Peters-led serial killer drama toppled Bridgerton Season 2, with the latter sitting at 656.2 million hours watched. It’s also worth mentioning that the #1 English-language show, Stranger Things 4, had a two-part release (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2), which understandably contributed to its big figure.

All eight episodes of Wednesday now streaming on Netflix.
