Parrot Analytics shared specific data that revealed WandaVision didn’t begin rising to the top of the heap until episode 3, when it became the “second or third” most in-demand series. It held in the top three until the release of episode 5. WandaVision‘s shocking cliffhanger helped skyrocket the show to the #1 spot, where it has remained according to Parrot Analytics’ last available data. That being said, Disney+’s decision to release one episode of WandaVision per week (rather than the Netflix method of dropping an entire season at once) may have also contributed to the series’ growing popularity.
Unlike other streaming originals on other platforms, WandaVision has the benefit of taking place within an existing and already ultra-popular universe. This is also true for Disney+’s other megahit, The Mandalorian. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is arguably the most popular film franchise in the world. Eight of the top 25 highest-grossing films of all time are set in the MCU, including the #1 biggest blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame. Considering Wanda was last seen in that film, it makes sense that the show would enjoy comparable success. With three more weeks of WandaVision episodes ahead, and plenty more bombshells expected to drop, the series stands a good chance of maintaining its #1 spot.
