Season 2 of Bridgerton now holds the top spot as the most-watched English-language Netflix series of all time, with a whopping 627.11M hours viewed in 28 days.
The show’s season 1 held this record earlier, with over 625.9M hours of viewership in the first 28 days. So now, we have the two seasons of Bridgerton occupying the top 2 places in the most-viewed category of the streaming platform.
Netflix broke the news in excitement this week regarding the success of Season 2. Season 1 of Bridgerton was released around Christmas in 2020, leaving everyone to wonder about a new season.
Around 25th March 2022, season 2 was released and it gained a much higher viewership than before. Some might say that Netflix’s metric of most viewership in 28 days makes or breaks the series’ popularity.
The fans loved the chemistry between Kate and Anthony (or Kanthony) in season 2 and expressed their joys of the season’s success.

Despite the success of Bridgerton Season 2, it is still no match for the South Korean sensation Squid Game which has amassed 1.65 billion hours of viewership in the first 28 days.
