It shouldn’t come as any surprise to fans of the series that Wednesday broke some serious records when it was released. Before this series, the biggest talk of the town was Stranger Things. Stranger Things was the first record-breaking show on Netflix to ever come out, and it set a precedent for other shows to hit if they wanted to be a media sensation that decimated records. Wednesday blew up when it was released, which isn’t too surprising considering all the hype surrounding this show during filming and production. The fourth season of Stranger Things previously held an astonishing record of 335.01 million hours viewed, and it seemed that show would hold onto that record for quite some time. However, once Wednesday came out, it shattered that record with an unbelievable 341.2 million hours of watch time. Since then, the watch time of Wednesday has surpassed a billion hours, which is absolutely insane to think about.
