Renewal of ‘Bridgerton’, monster earnings underscore Netflix’s streaming dominance

Netflix’s (NFLX) latest breakout series, “Bridgerton”, has been officially renewed for Season 2 – and it couldn’t come at the right time.

The news, which was announced on Thursday, was not at all surprising given the series’ great success. In fact, “Bridgerton” is the premiere of Netflix’s most-watched series of all time, with 63 million households estimated to see at least a portion of the show in its first four weeks, according to the company. (Cavite: Netflix counts a ‘viewer’ as someone who watches at least 2 minutes of content.)

After a five-year, $ 100 million deal for ABC (DIS) in the smash hit 2017, Shona works as the producer of Shona Romes’ first show for Netflix.

The film is expected to resume in the United Kingdom this spring, although one of the biggest challenges amid the coronovirus epidemic will be the film.

Recent restrictions have made it quite difficult to shoot more intimate scenes – which have now become a viral staple of the drama series.

In addition to the steamy scenes, “Bridgeton” also leans on hundreds of extras to help create the show’s festive ballroom parties – another familiar phenomenon that could be compromised due to COVID-19.

Nevertheless, the renovation underscores Netflix’s impressive commitment to content, which it plans to crank at a rapid pace. Earlier this month, Munch announced that it would drop an original film every week in 2021, and this week crushed the customer growth estimate in its quarterly earnings.

Flicks like “Malcolm and Mary” starring Zendaya and John David Washington have already received Oscar buzz; While others like “Don’t Look Up” highlight the ability of the platform to highlight A-list talent with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Meryl Streep, and more.

But despite all the series and movies that hit the stage in 2021, Netflix still suffered a lot after saying goodbye to its number one series “The Office” on January 1, according to Nielsen’s streaming list, that show saw 1.3 Gaya saw minutes in all 192 episodes between 7–13 December – making it the number one show on all platforms.

The ‘Dunder Mifflin’ Classic now lives on Contestant More (CMCSA), and it’s actually seeing more viewership on that service than Netflix, a streaming hub app hosting 300 services in one location According to the new data from Reelgad.

Of the 2 million Reelgood users, the stream’s share for “The Office” rose to 9.2% from January 1 to 7, with Reelgood’s list of the top 100 most-watched TV shows for that week, “Bridgeton” and “Mandaladorian” “Both stayed on top. .

In addition, the number of reelgood users with Peacock Free subscriptions increased by 17% from the week of December 25 to the week of January 8, while the timeframe for those holding a Peacock Premium account increased by 5%.

Data suggests that “The Office” may be a main driver in users coming to the platform – and yet another example of things heating up in an already competitive streaming battle.
