“Stranger Things” is a Netflix Original that combines 1980s nostalgia with the paranormal. The show is popular with TV aficionados and binge-watchers alike—after the July 4, 2019, release of season three, Netflix announced that 40.7 million households had watched at least one episode during its first four days of availability, and 18.2 million households had finished the entire season. There’s good news for fans who just can’t seem to get enough: creators Matt and Ross Duffer just renewed the show for a fourth season, which may be the last.

- Time it takes to binge: 2 days, 22 hours
Leading up to its eighth and final season, which aired in early 2019, fans spent hours catching up on old episodes of “Game of Thrones,” as it had been nearly two years since the previous season finished. The fantasy drama, based on George R.R. Martin’s book series of the same name, had long since passed where the written story left off. So it’s no surprise that nearly 20 million viewers, desperate for some resolution, tuned to watch the finale. Today, fans can binge all 72 episodes in just under three days.
