Bridgerton Season 2 Becomes Most-Watched English Netflix Series Overtaking Season 1

It is not news that Bridgerton is one of the most popular shows and many subscribers tune in to watch the series every day. The show was in the number one position in more than 75 countries. It premiered back in 2020 with its first season. Even then it was revealed that Bridgerton is the most-watched English language series on Netflix.

But it seems like the first season has been knocked down by none other than its second season. Netflix revealed recently that Bridgerton season 2 has now overtaken the show’s first season. The second season debuted at the number one spot in 92 countries and gained about 193 million hours of viewing time. This was garnered during the premiere weekend.

It has gained 627.11 million hours since its launch and has been the highest of any English-language Netflix series in its first few days. Season 1 received 625.49 million hours of viewing in its first 28 days and was seen by 82 million homes during that time frame.

“This marks the first-ever series to hold both the first and second place on a Most Popular list. This week, Season 2 clocked 66.61M hours viewed and appeared in the Top 10 in 88 countries,” Netflix said.

But irrespective of this, season 2 is still lagging behind Squid Game, the South-Korean sitcom that still remains the most-watched series. This series received 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the first 28 days and was seen by more than 142 million homes in the first four weeks. With Season 2 officially announced, we may see some more records broken this time.

Despite the show’s success, some individuals claim that there is little difference between sex scenes in ‘Bridgerton’ and porn. Noelle Perdue, an adult film producer, chastised Hollywood for using “double standards” in classifying content. He thought the “show’s approach to vulgarity was bewildering” since he couldn’t see any distinction between what Netflix did and what he does for a job.

Steamy scenes have been one of the major aspects of the show which isn’t porn but they have undoubtedly made their way to multiple adult video websites. Nonetheless, the program continues to set new milestones, and Netflix has no plans to stop.
