The Witcher is More Popular Than Stranger Things in Most Countries

Netflix came out of the gate strong with it's newest series The Witcher, and the show has quickly picked up a big following not only in the United States but also internationally. Witcher fan Eberes on Reddit decided to compile just how big that international following was, and after gathering Netflix's various top most popular rankings from around the world, it seems The Witcher is ranking quite high in many of them, and in all but a few cases, beats out one of Netflix's other massively popular shows in Stranger Things, which is now on season 3. When comparing Witcher to season 3 of Stranger Things, it looks like Witcher gets the lead in most countries.

Eberes compiled 26 of Netflix's rankings for comparison, and after looking at the results, it seems he's onto something. "The Witcher won 21 to ... 5. The overwhelming majority of places in many cases. I remind you: Stranger Things S3 is the most popular Netflix series ever ... until December 20, 2019," Eberes wrote.

"Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts," Netflix said. "But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together."
