'Stranger Things' season 3 has broken Netflix streaming record in its first four days

With the power at our fingers to watch television anytime, anywhere, it is no wonder that public patience wanes more and more every day. Just as people finish a series, they demand another. When you commit several days on-end to binging a show, it all makes sense.

To have something that's a part of your life, day in and day out, end suddenly can be absolutely devastating for obsessed television fanatics. And Stranger Things has been no different. If fact, it's been a lot worse.

Take an epic closer look at Stranger Things season three here:

The third season of the show dropped less than a week ago on July 4 and has already broken records. Stranger Things' third instalment has officially become the most-watched series and has bypassed all other films on Netflix too. Pop the champagne! The US Netflix account shared the exciting news on Twitter:

"40.7 million household accounts have been watching the show since its July 4 global launch — more than any other film or series in its first four days. And 18.2 million have already finished the entire season."

To be fair, it didn't exactly take excruciating dedication to finish the season (Game of Thrones, anyone?). There are only eight episodes at about an hour a pop, which seems like a crime considering fans waited for two years between the second and third seasons. And after confirming the season's exciting finale, angry fans already want more:

Other tweets speculate about what would happen in the next season. We'll spare you the dirty details just in case you have self control and haven't spent all your waking hours in front of the television.

With the finale of this season clocking in at 77 minutes, the longest episode to-date, fans are left on the edge of their seats and demanding another. Like right now. And though not even the directors are sure what to expect from a fourth season, they are sure there will be one to tie up all the loose ends season three left us with. But that most likely means we'll be waiting for a bit, so buckle up and find a new show to binge in the mean time.
