Although Netflix is notoriously cagey about ever giving away specifics of its viewing figures, it has revealed that Guillermo del Toro’s animated series Trollhunters, released just before Christmas, is currently tracking to be the streaming service’s most watched original children’s show ever.
We’re not surprised. The only question mark has to be how many of those watching it are actually children – it seems like as many, if not more, grown ups are loving the show too! You can read our review here.
The announcement came as part of Netflix’s press release about how its final quarter profits for 2016 are set to show the largest quarterly gain in the streaming service’s history. It also highlights (without going into actual numbers) The Crown, Black Mirror and Marvel’s Luke Cage as particular successes during the period. [via Variety]
