Unlike the rest of the world, Netflix had a phenomenal 2021. With the release of brilliant Netflix Originals, most notably Hwang Dong-hyuk’s South Korean survival series Squid Game, the streaming service established itself as one of the highest-grossing content creation services.
Cometh 2022, the streaming giant, has a fresh set of original series and films lined up that indeed seem pretty promising. Among them are some returning shows that fans have been waiting for with bated breath.
From waiting to see how Bridgerton season 2 determines the fate of the womanising Anthony Bridgerton to finally getting to explore the implosion of sci-fi, mystery and colours in the long-awaited Stranger Things season 4, 2022 is an exciting year for Netflix viewers.
At VpnOverview.com, the cyber experts have compiled a list of the most anticipated shows and released the monthly search numbers. Undoubtedly, Stranger Things tops the list. From the producer Shawn Levy talking about how the fourth season is “super worth the wait” to the cast, especially Finn Wolfhard, calling the season “dark” and “super messed up”, it is indisputably the chart-topper.
Then there is the live-action adaptation of the popular video game franchise Resident Evil that is set to make its debut on the streamer this year. Series such as The Crown feature on the ‘most searched’ list as well. The fifth and penultimate scene of The Crown has stirred a lot of controversy due to the inclusion of various notorious elements surrounding Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ tumultuous relationship.
According to one of the spokespersons at VpnOverview.com, “Whatever people are planning to watch this year, it looks like it will be another successful year for Netflix based on the searches alone.”
