The Umbrella Academy Was Watched By 45 Million Households In Its First Four Weeks

Netflix have released some pretty impressive stats in their 2019 first-quarter earnings report.

Since its release earlier in the year, we’ve been absolutely obsessed with The Umbrella Academy on Netflix – the brilliant adaptation of Gerard Way and illustrator Gabriel Bás beloved comic-book series of the same name.

And, as it turns out, a ton of people have been feeling the same way – as confirmed by Netflix’s just-released viewing data. According to the company, in its first four weeks on the streaming service, the series was viewed by approximately 45 million households (for comparison’s sake, other big-hitters like Our Planet and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened were viewed by 25 million and 20 million households respectively). Interestingly, a show or film has been viewed” if at least 70 per cent of its total running time has been seen.

This is an absolutely incredible achievement – so congratulations to Gerard, Gabriel and the entire team behind The Umbrella Academy. It’s good thing the show was recently renewed for a second season, eh?
