Some of the streamer’s success can be attributed to highly anticipated titles, such as Glass Onion, which has already accumulated 82.1 million view hours, or the equivalent of 35 million households. Surprising hits like Troll, on the other hand, aided Netflix’s ascension to first place in the rankings. Roar Uthaug’s monster film quickly became Netflix’s most popular non-English film.
Netflix unveils their list of the Most Popular TV In 2022
Today, Netflix revealed its list of the “Most Popular TV In 2022,” with Stranger Things Season 4 taking the crown. Stranger Things’ latest season introduced the terrifying villain Vecna, who helped the show go viral on social media. Stranger Things takes the top spot on Netflix’s list with 19 weeks spent in the Top 10s, closely followed by newcomer series Wednesday, which could’ve taken the top spot had it premiered earlier than November 23. The event series Dahmer, the returning Bridgerton season 2, and the limited series Inventing Anna round out the top five. Check out the complete top ten list below:
Stranger Things has undoubtedly established itself as Netflix’s most popular franchise over the years, and the season 4 numbers reflect that popularity. Despite the fact that the series shows no signs of slowing down as the cast and crew begin work on Stranger Things season 5, the data for Netflix’s top television shows in 2022 has named a worthy successor in the form of new supernatural series Wednesday. Stranger Things Season 4 will be the most-watched English-language series on Netflix until 2022, but Wednesday wants to take over. Stranger Things 5 and Wednesday season 2, released in the same year, should provide Netflix with another record-breaking year.
