Henry Cavill's Show 'The Witcher' Set To Be Netflix's Biggest Series Ever

The Witcher is on track to be Netflix’s biggest series ever!

According to multiple reports, the series starring Henry Cavill is turning out to be a huge hit for the streaming service.

Debuting on December 20th, the show so far has been by 76 million customer households in the first four weeks of release, according to the company.

“As a testament to how our hit content can penetrate the global zeitgeist and influence popular culture, the show’s launch drove up sales of ‘The Witcher’ books and games around the world, and spawned a viral musical hit,” the company said in its Q4 shareholder letter.

However, Netflix has also changed the way it reports a “view.”

In a footnote in the letter, it says that a view counts as a member watching for as as two minutes or “long enough to indicate the choice was intentional.”

Previously, the company counted a view as a member account watching at least 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a feature film.

The Witcher centers on Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
