It’s been more than a year since viewers enjoyed a new episode of “Stranger Things”, but that hasn’t prevented the critically acclaimed Netflix thriller from remaining the #1 series among all digital streaming content.
According to statistics from Parrot Analytics, “Stranger Things” remains the most popular streaming series in the world, despite the fact that the last season debuted on Oct. 27, 2017.
A Parrot Analytics graph illustrates that the show’s “demand expression” measurement — which, reports Indiewire, “combines streaming, peer-to-peer downloads, social media, comments, blogs and other sources” — is significantly higher than the #2 show on the list, “Orange Is the New Black”, while “Chilling Adventures” of Sabrina is already in third place even though it just premiered two weeks ago.
“It’s a special show, and the passion seems to be heightened,” Parrot’s marketing vice president Samuel Stadler told Indiewire of “Stranger Things”.
“It seems that particular show has staying power beyond anything,” Stadler added. “There hasn’t been a show that comes anywhere close to it.”
The third season of “Stranger Things” isn’t expected to debut until summer 2019.
