Bridgerton Is Now Netflix’s Most Successful Orignal Series Ever

Bridgeton Season 2 Release Date

Bridgerton Season 1 has just been announced as the most successful Netflix Orignal  show on the streaming platform ever. This news was revealed via Deadline.

Bridgerton Season 1 is pretty darn good, and it seems to have struck a chord with many people out there. Us being all locked up in lockdown at the moment might have helped the show become so popular.

It’s now being revealed that the show is Netflix’s most successful original series after having been watched by a record 82 million households around the world. Now, Netflix does count 2 minutes as a watch, so this number is skewed slightly. However, it’s still pretty impressive.

Netflix had predicted that the show would end up being watched by 63 million households in its first 28 days, however, it looks like they underestimated how popular the show would be.

At 63 million, Bridgerton would have been the fifth best performing Netflix Original show on the streaming platform. However, it’s shot straight to the number one position, leapfrogging The Witcher Season 1 in the process.

The Witcher Season 1 was watched by 76 million households in its first 28 days. It was also revealed that Lupin – the new hit French show – was watched by 70 million households in its first 28 days later.
