For a few months now, Netflix has been chaining record after record … and no, it’s not Squid Game we’re talking about today. Indeed, if the Korean series has allowed Netflix to garner millions of new subscribers, it is another mini-series that would very soon become the most watched mini-series on the American platform.
Maid plus fort que The Queen’s Gambit
Indeed, in the bowels of Netflix’s latest financial report, the American giant announces that Maid should soon set a new record. Indeed, this one should become the miniseries most seen during its first month of diffusion on the service of SVOD. The Maid would thus take the place of The Queen’s Gambit.
In fact, if the record held by The Queen’s Gambit shows 62 million views during its first month of availability, Maid could peak at more than 67 million views by November 1. Remember that Maid is an American mini-series, created by Molly Smith Metzler, adapted from the memories Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land, which was put online on October 1. We follow the adventures of Alex, a young mother who becomes a housekeeper to support herself and her daughter Maddy. A mini-series that has a total of 10 episodes.
For its part, Squid Game obviously retains its newly acquired title of the most watched series of all time on Netflix, the latter having tickled the curiosity of more than 117 million accounts … in 17 days. A Netflix that seems more powerful than ever, even if according to some estimates, the supremacy of Netflix (whose recent price increase continues to plague more than one subscriber …) could soon be undermined by a certain Disney +.
According to “experts“, The number of Disney + subscribers will reach 284.2 million by 2026, exceeding Netflix’s total of around 270.7 million. To be continued.
