‘WandaVision’ Beats Out ‘The Mandalorian’ for Most Popular TV Show. Marvel’s first Disney+ Original Series, WandaVision has been a hit for Marvel Studios and Disney+ since the premiere of the series and fans are in agreement that it just keeps getting better as we dive deeper into the story.
Parrot Analytics recently ran a study comparing data based on social media, fan ratings, and piracy data to determine how in-demand various entertainment titles are currently and found that WandaVision is currently the most in-demand television series around the world, unseating Star Wars The Mandalorian.
The study showed that WandaVision was heavily popular after its initial release, but the premiere of episodes 4 and 5 caused the series to shoot straight up to the #1 spot.
Insight Analyst at Parrot Analytics Wade Payson-Denney shared the correlation between prolonged popularity and release styles sharing, “When we see a binge release series like we do on Netflix [The Crown, Bridgerton, Cobra Kai, The Queen’s Gambit, Tiger King, etc], we’re seeing demand skyrocket at first for like a week. They really pop up at first but quickly trail off. It’s a quick hit for these streamers. Whereas with weekly release [like on Disney+], we see popularity gradually build over time, especially for a show like The Mandalorian and WandaVision.”
