The Top 10 Most Popular Web Series of 2022
1. Stranger Things
The fourth season of Stranger Things tops Netflix’s list of the “Most Popular TV Show In 2022.” Netflix presents a list of the top TV shows streamed in 2022, with Stranger Things season 4 taking the top spot. After three years since season 3, Stranger Things season 4 finally released on Netflix. Before the most recent episode, the longest time between seasons of Stranger Things was the two years between seasons 2 and 3. The Covid-19 pandemic caused a number of production issues for Stranger Things season 4, which caused the series to delay its release before making a hugely successful Netflix premiere.
2. House of the Dragon
Pre-release buzz for the Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon was intense, but it far exceeded everyone’s expectations with top-notch acting, writing, and production standards that delighted GOT fans. The Targaryen Houses’ internal civil war, which is depicted in the books as a dragon dance, is the subject of House of the Dragons. The Iron Throne was claimed by both half-brothers Aegon and Raenira in the season finale after King Viserys passed away, setting the stage for that conflict.
3. Better Call Saul
One of the best scripted television shows, Better Call Saul, has returned for a sixth season to rave reviews and ratings from viewers. With 2.7 million viewers on AMC in Nielsen live+3 ratings, including 1.1 million adults 25-54 and many more on AMC+, Better Call Saul’s series finale was the most watched episode of the season. The final season continues to be the #1 acquisition driver.
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
The creators of The Lord of the Rings created the Rings of The Power trilogy as a follow-up to the HOTD prelude to Game of Thrones. This fantasy series, which is available to watch on Prime Video, came in at number four. The Rings of Power was one of Prime Video’s most popular original series when this first season was in production. The Rings of Power is a huge hit for Amazon on the ratings front. It garnered a global audience of more than 25 million viewers.
HBO’s “Euphoria” returned in January to nearly double the number of viewers it had in its first season.According to a report from Variety earlier this month, since airing on January 9, the season two premiere has attracted 13.1 million viewers across HBO and HBO Max. Episodes two and three have also seen increases in viewership. On HBO, season one’s average viewership in 2019 was 6.6 million.
6. The Boys
With 919 million minutes views in the United States, The Boys season 3 has experienced a meteoric rise in streaming ratings from Nielsen. The show is in second place, immediately behind Stranger Things on Netflix, which has a significant lead over Amazon’s graphic and obscene superhero series with 4.2 billion minutes seen, a significant decrease from its record-breaking 7 billion minutes watched. The Boys season 3 is the only programme to top the Nielsen charts, according to viewership in every category.
7. Moon Knight
The newest Marvel show to dominate Disney+ is Moon Knight. Oscar Isaac (Marc Spector/Steven Grant), Ethan Hawke (Arthur Harrow), and May Calamawy’s nuanced performances on the superhero programme have generated a lot of attention among viewers and critics. Moon Knight has had an 8.65-times increase in demand since its March 30 premiere. The specifics of what that means are somewhat difficult to interpret, but the overall impression is that Moon Knight has done quite well.
8. The Sandman
After its August debut, Sandman immediately surpassed all other TV shows on Netflix in every country. There is no census of how many people watched, but they do track hours, with the first three days seeing 69.5 million and the seventh day seeing 127.5 million. The show has gained popularity and a rebirth after being introduced to Netflix in Latin America, India, and the Nordic nations.
In the most recent Top 10 rankings from Nielsen, “Ozark,” which received 2.6 billion minutes of viewing between April 25 and May 1, came in first place. The series finale was only accessible for the final three days of the viewing window because Netflix published Part 2 of the fourth and final season of the show on April 29. In Nielsen’s top original series rankings, the Netflix drama outperformed the other nine shows’ combined total (3.96 billion minutes). With 24.48 million hours seen last week, the first season of Ozark saw an increase in viewers as well. “Ozark” hasn’t consistently dominated Netflix’s audience like some of its other hits have. However, it has garnered positive reviews from critics.
10. Inventing Anna
After its premiere, “Inventing Anna” on Netflix gained momentum and, in the second week after its release on the service, climbed to the top spot on Nielsen’s Top 10 streaming rankings. The Shonda Rhimes limited series starring Julia Garner ended up increasing its viewership to 3.3 billion minutes during the week of February. In the first four days of streaming, 1.6 million US homes watched the Netflix series, according to Samba TV.
