Fan-Favourite Netflix Series Topples Hawkeye & Wheel of Time With New Season Debut

Original Netflix programmes have pierced the pop culture veil and resonated with audiences in recent years, with fans eagerly expecting new episodes. The live-action adaption of The Witcher on Netflix may safely be listed among them, with the second season premiering to a lot of fan buzz late last year.

According to Nielsen’s most recent statistics, that conversation has also translated into some amazing audience numbers. The two seasons of The Witcher were seen for a total of 2,191 million minutes during the week of December 13th through December 19th, according to their data. This was far more than Disney+’s Hawkeye, which received 580 million minutes of viewing time, and Amazon’s The Wheel of Time, which received 467 million minutes of viewing time.

This corresponds to Netflix’s recent announcement that Season 2 of The Witcher received 462.5 million hours of viewing in the first 28 days of its release. This makes it the streamer’s seventh-largest English language launch ever.

In Season 2 of The Witcher, convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.

‘The Witcher includes Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), Freya Allan (Ciri), Jodhi May (Calanthe), Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson (Eist), Adam Levy (Mousesack), MyAnna Buring (Tissaia), Mimi Ndiweni (Fringilla), Therica Wilson-Read (Sabrina), Emma Appleton (Renfri), Eamon Farren (Cahir), Joey Batey (Jaskier), Lars Mikkelsen (Stregobor), Royce Pierreson (Istredd), Maciej Musia? (Sir Lazlo), Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Dara), and Anna Shaffer (Triss).

During a panel appearance last year, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich remarked of the third season, “What I will say about the third season. The writers are back in Los Angeles diligently working while I am here getting to do this, so I’m grateful for them. […] It’s a really fun season, and it follows a particular book very closely, has a lot of action, some death… some death.”
