Stranger Things ranks No. 3 on the FanSided 250 TV fandoms
Stranger Things fans, we have some good news. No, it has nothing to do with the Stranger Things season 4 release date. This time, the news is about you!
Stranger Things was named the third-best TV fandom in the annual FanSided 250, a ranking of the hottest fandoms across sports and entertainment.
Stranger Things trailed only Schitt’s Creek and Bachelor Nation, which ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the FanSided 250.
The most popular Netflix original series ranked No. 62, among the other 250 fandoms selected.
Overall, I think that ranking is pretty accurate. While some fans might be disappointed that Stranger Things wasn’t named the top TV fandom of 2020, it’s actually quite impressive that Stranger Things made the top five. We didn’t get to see a new season of Stranger Things in 2020, and the show still made the top three? That’s pretty crazy, and I think it shows how strong this fandom actually is.
Even though we have to wait for a long time between seasons, the fandom is always waiting and ready to throw their support behind the show and its stars.
In 2021, and after we see Stranger Things season 4, I fully expect Stranger Things to be the top TV fandom, and I think we’ll see the fandom in the top 10 overall. The show is only getting more popular, and the fans are getting more passionate.
Stranger Things is the top Netflix original show in the ranking, although Schitt’s Creek is on Netflix. I’d argue that the series is No. 1 ONLY because the show streams on Netflix. Without Netflix, this show is only going to be seen by a couple of millions of fans around the world. With Netflix’s reach, Schitt’s Creek could be watched by hundreds of millions of viewers.
The Crown, Riverdale, GLOW, The Witcher, Supernatural, Tiger King, The Office, Ozark, The Walking Dead, and Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad are the other TV fandoms associated with Netflix that made the FanSided 250.
