Finally, some good news for Netflix: Stranger Things just broke the streamer’s best-ever debut weekend for an English-language series with 286.79 million hours viewed. That “English-language series” is important: Squid Game is still far and away Netflix’s biggest hit, followed by Money Heist if you’re curious.

Go ahead and speculate about Will’s sexuality all you want, the Stranger Things cast isn’t talking.
And now more bad news for Netflix: Netflix’s test run of cracking down on password sharing isn’t going great. My takeaway from this is that Netflix is trying to tie an account to one physical location, meaning it’s going to be harder for you to use your account when you’re on vacation or if you move, or if your kid goes off to school? Yeah, good luck, Netflix.
Currently, if a series has episodes that will air or stream after the Emmys’ May 31 eligibility cutoff date, the show can make the remaining episodes available to Emmy voters and still be considered. However, beginning next year, all those episodes have to air by May 31 to be considered, which means Spring 2023 is going to be even crazier than this year in terms of prestige dramas being pushed out.
