Netflix bets on science fiction

Image Fantasy and sci-fi series have played a huge role in the success of the online service Netflix. Only in the last couple of years, the hearts of viewers and critics have won the streaming giant's TV projects such as Mysterious Events, OA, Altered Carbon and Lost in Space. According to Ampere Analysis, Netflix is preparing new surprises for fans of sci-fi and hopes to make fantasy and sci-fi the dominant genres of its service.

American analysts managed to establish that the second season of the series "Mysterious Events" became the highest-rated Netflix project last year, which gathered about 25 million viewers from the screens on the day of its premiere. The closest pursuer of the mystical drama about the mysterious town of Hawkins was the mini-series "The Defenders". Over 10 million people watched the Marvel superhero action movie during its premiere day.

For a long time, Netflix's subscribers have prioritized comedies, but the success of its latest sci-fi series has changed that. According to the results of the first quarter of this year, for the first time, sai-fay managed to break out into the leaders of the rating of the most popular genres of online services. Comedy takes second place, and action and adventure are on the third step of the podium.


Netflix executives immediately responded to the changing tastes of their audience. According to Ampere Analysis forecasts, the share of fantasy and science fiction series in the total volume of new projects of the leader of the global streaming industry will increase to 29%.

Other well-known online services are ready to take an example with Netflix. Thus, the media giant Amazon intends to spend $ 1 billion on the creation of a series based on the fantasy saga "The Lord of the Rings", and the young television department of Apple corporation has just announced a remake of the fantastic anthology "Amazing Stories", a space show from the creator of "Battlestar Galactica" Isaac Asimov's series "Foundation".
