Netflix’s The Witcher is still the biggest TV series in the world according to the latest data.
It’s clear that Netflix has a verified hit on their hands with the adult fantasy epic The Witcher. The first season has gone down very well with audiences and the latest data has shown that it’s still the most in-demand series in the world, months after all its episodes premiered.
Business Insider reveals that even though demand is slipping for The Witcher, it is still top of the heap: “Data firm Parrot Analytics told Business Insider that the show, based on the Polish novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, is still the most in-demand TV series globally across all platforms over the last 30 days (January 14 to February 12). It has held that top spot since it dethroned Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian seven weeks ago.
“Parrot Analytics measures demand expressions, its globally standardized TV measurement unit that reflects the desire, viewership, and engagement of a series weighted by importance.”
This certainly puts plenty of pressure on season two to succeed, especially considering its vast global reach. Will it be able to surpass season one? Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long to find out.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri. Other cast members include Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, Emma Appleton, Eamon Farren, Joey Batey, Lars Mikkelsen, Royce Pierreson, Maciej Musiał, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte, and Anna Shaffer.
