Netflix keeps renewing its top originals.
Netflix originals have gained so much popularity in the past few years that viewership rivals “Game of Thrones,” on HBO.
“It’s reasonable, but, sometimes I think it can get a little out of hand because people just start going crazy for these shows and begging for more,” said Delta College student Jasmine Morehouse.
According to an article from thewrap.com Nielsen said a certain Netflix show got more ratings in one spring than any other show except “Game of Thrones,” but didn’t say which show it was. “Game of Thrones,” averaged 20.2 million viewers in 2015.
Over the years some of the most popular shows on Earth have been created and streamed on Netflix such as “House of Cards,” and “Stranger Things.”
Netflix originals even earned 16 nominations in major categories in the 2016 Emmys, only eight behind HBO who had the most.
Netflix has been responding to this popularity by putting billions of dollars into new shows and films for exclusive streaming rights over the past year. Netflix looks to keep adding original shows to their service confirming about 49 more shows by 2018.
As well as renewing 43 of their current shows including crowd favorites like “Orange is the New Black,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and many others that you could read on Metacritic’s 2016-17 Season Scorecard.
“I mean if they’re shows come out great it’ll be worth it, but, if people don’t like them because they prefer the [current] originals then they’ll probably drop down and they’ll lose millions,” said student Elizabeth Santibanez.
