Prime Video‘s Jack Ryan barely beats Netflix‘s Wednesday in the latest streaming charts, according to Nielsen. Netflix, however, keeps its top-dog status leading the pack with Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Jack Ryan and Wednesday take the second and third spots.
Notably, the rest of the list belongs to Netflix, save for the fifth spot occupied by Peacock’s Yellowstone. Based on these numbers, Netflix is still the streaming giant for the American audience.
Starring John Krasinski as the eponymous character of the series, the third season premiered on December 21st, 2022. That gave fans over three years of waiting for the latest season. Now they are anticipating the fourth, presumed to be the final, season of the series.
Jack Ryan Barely Defeats Wednesday In Nielsen Charts
While the CIA and international politics and security would be highly different from Nevermore Academy and the town of Jericho, Ryan and Addams may just have something in common. Aside from an eye for conspiracy and putting two and two together, both series take top priority in streaming for audiences.
Obviously, their market and genre are different. However, the interest and intrigue they both have may just be at the right amounts to keep audiences interested and invested.
While the teenage Addams girl has just received the green light for a second season, the CIA Analyst already has three seasons to his belt with a fourth and possibly final season. The final season holds the key for a spinoff and a possible movie as well.
The good news for fans is that the fourth season won’t take three years to arrive. In fact, Krasinski himself gave indications that it could very well arrive within the year.
In an interview with The Wrap, John Krasinski reveals:
We already finished [Season 4], we actually shot three and four back to back. So that was the whole idea, knowing that the fans would go so long in between two and three, we decided to do three and four back to back so that they wouldn’t have to wait that long again.
Be that as it may, it will not be the last that the audience will know of the Ryanverse. The live-action series adaptation of Tom Clancy’s characters will continue in a future spin-off series and possibly a full-feature film.
The fourth season will bring Michael Pena as Ding Chavez forward for a more significant role. It will pave the way for his own spin-off series in the Ryanverse.
