Henry Cavill’s ‘The Witcher’ Is Still The Top Series Worldwide

The Witcher Henry Cavill Coronavirus Netflix

New data reveals Henry Cavill’s The Witcher is still the biggest series in the world, despite a drop in interest from U.S. viewers.

Netflix debuted the first season of The Witcher in late December 2019, and the Henry Cavill series quickly became one of the biggest hits for the streaming service. Now, Business Insider reports that Data firm Parrot Analytics has informed the outlet that Henry Cavill’s The Witcher was still the most in-demand television series across all platforms from January 14 to February 12.

When The Witcher debuted on Netflix seven weeks ago, the Henry Cavill series dethroned Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian as the top TV series and has retained the position ever since. According to Parrot Analytics, both Henry Cavill’s The Witcher and The Mandalorian feature qualities that make for a hit streaming series, including science-fiction and fantasy themes inspired by the popular source material.

In the U.S., Henry Cavill’s The Witcher has slipped in recent weeks in the Parrot’s U.S. audience-demand rankings for original streaming shows. Last week, Henry Cavill’s The Witcher ranked third behind Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian and Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Here is the official synopsis for Henry Cavill’s The Witcher:

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.

The Witcher is now available on Netflix.
