Netflix’s ‘Umbrella Academy’ Takes Over ‘Stranger Things’ as No. 1 Streaming Original Last Week





Move over Stranger Things, The Umbrella Academy has broken through to the top as the number one original digital TV show for last week thanks to its Season 2 premiere on July 31. Demand for the show rose 154% since the previous week, according to Parrot Analytics’ digital originals rankings.

Netflix‘s ever-popular Stranger Things got bumped to No. 2 after sitting on top for seven weeks in a row, even though there hasn’t been a new episode since July 2019. The Duffer Brothers’ sci-fi thriller is always a powerhouse for pulling in views regardless of when new seasons premiere.

The Mandalorian, the live-action Star Wars series on Disney+ held its No. 3 rank again last week, and Netflix’s fantasy series The Witcher starring Henry Cavill stayed at No. 4.

And coming in at No. 5 was DC Universe’s Titans with expressions up 1.7%. As DC Univers’s first original series, it’s gained quite the following by comic fans. The storyline follows this group of young heroes as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the iconic Teen Titans franchise.
