Netflix said Wednesday that “Bridgerton”, Shonda Rhimes’ latest television hit, is the most watched series in the history of the digital giant.
The platform said in a press release that 82 million accounts have seen “Bridgerton” in its first 28 days after its fantastic premiere at Christmas.
In the case of Netflix audience data, it is advisable to walk with lead, since the method used by the platform to define a viewing is very controversial: it is enough for a user to watch a specific content for two minutes for it to be counted.
But in any case, and no matter how doubtful Netflix’s way of presenting its successes may be (there is no news of its failures), “Bridgerton” has positioned itself above other phenomena such as the “streaming” service such as “The Witcher”, “Lupine”, “The Queen’s Gambit” or even “Stranger Things”.
Last week, Netflix confirmed that there will be a second season of “Bridgerton” via the series’ mysterious narrator, Lady Whistledown.
In a signed note in his own handwriting, this character revealed that the next season of the series will focus on the older brother of the family, Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), and that it will begin shooting in the spring.
“This author has been faithfully informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season,” said Lady Whistledown, who warned that she will have her pen “ready to relate all his romantic activities.”
Although no further details have been released, it is assumed that Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) will continue to be part of the plot of this addictive period series that has caused a sensation in theaters. last weeks.
