‘Stranger Things’ is DESTROYED from the list of most watched series by another big hit on Netflix
What ‘Stranger Things’ is one of the biggest hits of contemporary television, it’s nothing new. After all, the series created by Duffer brothers reached the top of the ranking of the most watched titles in the Netflix From United States for several weeks – but now the work has been dethroned by another big hit on the streaming platform (via ComicBook.com).
According to data from Nielsen Media Research, the acclaimed romantic drama ‘Virgin River’ reached number one on the most watched list for the week of July 18 to July 24, with no less than 2.6 billion minutes viewed. At the same time, ‘Stranger Things’ came in second, with almost 2.3 billionfollowed closely by the action ‘Hidden Agent’in third place, and for the first season of ‘Resident Evil’in fourth.
And, during a statement released by Comic Book, co-CEO Reed Hastings listed some titles responsible for preventing the drop in Netflix users from being greater.
Among the titles mentioned are ‘ozark‘, which had new episodes released in March, and ‘Stranger Things‘, which had its 4th season split between May and July.
“Looking at the last quarter, we were serving a variety of quality content. We had ‘Ozark’ and ‘Stranger Things‘, among other titles, which garnered many views. We are improving everything we do around marketing, improving service, improving merchandising and you know it all slowly pays off.”
“But if we can credit a single production, we would choose ‘Stranger Things‘. Losing nearly 1 million subscribers is less painful than losing 2 million, as we were anticipating, so our excitement is dictated by the less bad results.”
Remembering that the Netflix remains the world’s largest video streaming service, with nearly 221 million subscribers. Already for the third quarter of 2022, the company estimates that it will get 1 million new users. According to data from consultancy Refinitiv, Wall Street analysts had expected a forecast of 1.84 million new subscribers.
