Daredevil season 3 experienced a viewership drop of over 50% in its first week compared to the second season, according to Netflix viewing figures obtained by Screen Rant.
While Netflix keeps their viewing figures a secret, San Francisco-based analytics company Jumpshot has been monitoring the Netflix original shows since 2016 in order to gather insight into the viewing behavior and activity of their U.S. members. According to the data, the third season of Daredevil suffered a viewership drop of 57% in its first week compared to the figures for season two over the same period of time. While that may be a significant drop during the critical first week, when all Netflix Original’s earn the majority of views, the series is still outperforming the second seasons of Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
