Parrot Analytics: Orange is the New Black is no match for Stranger Things in the UK

The eagerly-awaited final season of Orange is the New Black was not enough to beat out Stranger Things in Parrot Analytics’ originals in-demand chart in the UK for the week ending July 30.

The retro sci-fi phenomenon saw 35,948,138 average demand expressions, compared to OITNB’s 8,323,699.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms.  

Hulu original The Handmaid’s Tale, which streams in the UK on Channel 4’s AVOD All4, sits in third with 5,454,478 average demand expressions.

Spanish-language La Casa De Papel (Money Heist) charted 4,852,313 average demand expressions, reflecting the record-breaking success of its new season for Netflix.

The chart is predictably dominated by Netflix, with The Handmaid’s Tale and Good Omens being the highest-ranking non-Netflix shows.

The rest of the top 10 is made up of Netflix originals Lucifer, Queer Eye and German-language Dark, along with CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery and Hulu’s reboot of cult-classic Veronica Mars.
