Netflix’s Manifest Saw A 67% Viewership Jump In 2 Weeks
The Crown Season 5 premiered on November 9 on the streamer. On the other hand, Manifest dropped the first part of its fourth season on November 4 after which it quickly shot to the top. The American supernatural drama initially aired on NBC for three seasons after which it was canceled by the network. However, Netflix picked it up and the numbers sure validate its renewal.
Manifest’s viewed minutes shot up in the second week itself from 1.37 Billion to 2.28 Billion minutes. This marks an increase of 67%. Meanwhile, The Crown debuted its fifth season with 2.13 Billion viewed minutes in the first week. It soon became the only series that came really close to taking the top spot and dethroning Manifest.
The latest season of Love Is Blind bagged the third spot with 1.27 Billion viewed minutes as reported by ComicBook. Henry Cavill and Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola Holmes 2 earned 942 Million minutes at the fourth spot.
Why Is The Crown Season 5 So Popular On Netflix?
The Crown Season 5 marks the biopic series’ transition to the modern era bringing in a sense of familiarity. Moreover, the series also showcased the story of a crucial member of the Royal Family, Princess Diana. The role is currently played by Elizabeth Debicki who is taking over from Emma Corrin who helmed the character’s portrayal in Season 4.
Imelda Staunton from Harry Potter fame is also taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth from Olivia Colman. Claire Foy was the first actress to be cast in the role. Other new faces introduced in the latest season are:
- Dominic West as Prince Charles
- Jonathan Pryce as Prince Phillip
- Lesley Manville as Prince Margaret
Why Did Netflix Renew NBC’s Manifest?
Manifest is a mystery-drama show that closely resembles the popular series Lost. Although the series premiered on NBC with superb ratings, with each new season, it dropped rapidly. Season 1 averaged over 10 Million viewers per episode while Season 2 saw a drop to 6-7 Million. By Season 3 the number was down to 5 Million. Given that the number was too low for a prime-time network show, Netflix rescued the series and dedicated a two-part fourth and final season.
Ever since then, the series has soared and gained the much-needed audience that loves the binge-watch format.
