“The Witcher” has become the most in-demand TV show. Based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, the show is being seen in the world on almost every platform.
As per the Parrot Analytics, the show is on top because of the high demand expressions like engagement, views and the importance that reflects its desire. According to Business Insider, “The Witcher” is one of Netflix’s most popular series in the US of the year, second only to “Stranger Things,” the streaming company said on Monday.
Soon after its release, “The Witcher” got 127 million in-demand inclinations. In the very first week (December 22 to 28), the TV show left “The Mandalorian” behind it. With that impressive start and the most in-demand streaming series in the U.S., “The Witcher” broke all records with its 21- week streak at the top of Parrot Analytics’ chart.
A representative from Parrot Analytics said that “The Witcher’s immediate worldwide success highlights the impact that a binge-released series can have on driving audience demand. Its success is also crucial for Netflix heading into the 2020s as the streamer fights off new SVOD players and declining global digital original demand share.”
Netflix further expands its fantasy with “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf”, a new Anime feature film, with the animations done from a Korean ‘Studio Mir’ animation studio. Netflix says that “The world of ‘The Witcher’ expands in this anime film that explores a powerful new threat facing the continent.”
With this success rate, Netflix seems to earn a big financial card from its season after season. The CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings, says that “The Witcher is a “massive new franchise that we’ll develop season after season.” From the past two months, the season has held the top spot worldwide.
With Netflix’s international growth, the season is expected to gain more popularity, even though it is falling to get the attention of the US audience lately.
The series has already beaten Stranger Things, Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror, The Crown, Ozark and Haunting of Hill House. Let’s see what the new season in 2021 brings to Netflix.
