Dark seems to be a hit for Netflix

Since I do loves me a chart, I thought I’d flag up this exciting bit of news. Dark, which is Netflix’s first German-language show and has already been renewed for a second season, seems to be Netflix’s biggest European hit so far:

Global demand for Dark

The quick demise of Marseille isn’t a big surprise, particularly to anyone who tried watching it, since it wasn’t much cop, but the fact Dark is doing so well is surprising, albeit less so when you think that genre shows tend to get a certain level of built-in popularity.

Global demand for Dark

More surprising is that Dark was more popular than cartoon Castlevania. That’s the kind of thing you expect to do well, don’t you think?
