Despite a lot of negative reviews from critics, Netflix’s “The Witcher” has been warmly welcomed by players and viewers since the 20th. According to the analysis released over the weekend, “The Witcher” began on the 20th and remained the third most popular streaming platform in the United States until the Christmas break, behind Stranger Things and Disney’s “Star Wars: The Man-Manlo.”
Businessinsider cites statistics from Parrot Analytics, whose “demand algorithm” weights different factors such as audience demand, topic engagement, and ratings as a global standard for episode dissemination.
As a series supported only by the first season of the first season, which is supported by a total of eight episodes, “The Witcher” is able to compete with two solid-based predecessors, “Stranger Things” and “The Mandalorians,” apparently thanks to the popularity of the original and adapted games. While the novel “The Witcher” is regarded as a Polish national treasure, CDPR’s game “The Witcher” series is one of the best RPG works in history, attracting a lot of not-so-focused film and television drama players to come.
As a result, The Witcher’s Rotten Tomatoes ratings also showed a huge gap of 56% (critics) and 93% (audience). Netflix has announced the second season of “The Witcher” in November, and we can expect to see a better run in the second season.
