Netflix published a list of the top TV shows streamed in 2022, with Stranger Things season 4 taking the top spot. Stranger Things season 4 eventually debuted on Netflix three years after season 3 did. The interval between seasons of Stranger Things that was the longest before the most recent episode was the two years that separated seasons 2 and 3. The Covid-19 pandemic caused several production issues for Stranger Things season 4, which caused the series to delay its release before making a hugely successful Netflix premiere.
The fourth season of Stranger Things topped Netflix’s list of the “In 2022 Most Popular TV ” (according to the streaming service). The most recent season of Stranger Things saw the introduction of Vecna, the show’s horrifying antagonist who contributed to the series becoming a social media sensation. Stranger Things is the most popular title, spending 19 weeks in the best top 10 on Netflix. Close behind in second place is Wednesday, a brand-new series that may have taken first place had it debuted earlier than November 23. The event series Dahmer, the return of Bridgerton season 2, and the short series Inventing Anna round out the top five. After the break, view the full list of the top 10:
Can Anything Compare to Stranger Things?
Unquestionably, Stranger Things has established itself as Netflix’s most popular franchise, and the season 4 ratings reflect this. Season 5 of Stranger Things, which will be the final season of the series, has already begun production. Still, the data for Netflix’s top television shows in 2022 has already chosen a deserving successor in the form of the new spooky series Wednesday. By the time Stranger Things season 4 wraps up in 2022, Wednesday wants to have surpassed Wednesday as the most watched English-language Netflix series.
Jenna Ortega portrays Wednesday Addams in Wednesday, which is based on the Addams Family television series. In the dark television show, Wednesday looks into a murder case involving a creature that is killing people close to her school. Many of the show’s scenes went popular on social media because of Wednesday’s infamously emotionless personality. With 341.2 million hours compared to Stranger Things’ 335.1 million, it assisted Wednesday in breaking the record for the most English-language television programmes seen in a week on Netflix.
The Millie Bobby Brown programme won the contest for the title of most-watched English-language Netflix series with little over 100 million total viewing hours. If Wednesday season 2 and Stranger Things 5 are published in the same year, Netflix should have another record-breaking year.
What Programs Might Surpass Netflix In 2023?
2023 is predicted to be a record-breaking year for the streaming service due to Netflix’s continued creation of original series. One of the shows vying for Netflix’s top spot is the thriller You season 4. Joe Goldberg returns for a global adventure this season, departing from the US for London.
The show will also adhere to the Stranger Things 4 release schedule on Netflix, which splits the season into two parts that are released one month apart. The Witcher, which will feature Henry Cavill’s final season as Geralt, has the potential to surpass other Netflix original series in 2023 in terms of viewership. To witness Cavill say goodbye to the franchise, viewers are anticipated to swarm to the fantasy series in great numbers. Even though the next season of Stranger Things shouldn’t start airing until 2023, Netflix is well-served for the year.
