The Most Streamed Web Series in 2023

2018 proved to be a fantastic year in India because it was when Indians and those living in the country got their hands, or should that be eyes, on what is known as web series. They were no longer limited to Hindi movies with all the singing and dancing; they could enjoy much more, thanks to streaming services. As you’ll expect, web series became incredibly popular and fast, and some of the shows below have proven to be mega hits.

Game of Thrones

There’s only one place to start when talking about popular web series, and that’s with Game of Thrones. The show, which saw families battle for the Iron Throne, was a worldwide success, and when streaming became a thing in India, it attracted millions of viewers. Interestingly, it was possible to use a VPN to watch the latest episodes before they were officially released in the country. This franchise has not only built up a loyal fan base but has been the basis for several video games, spin-off shows, and even the theme for online bingo rooms at some of the most popular online bingo operators in the world. And in spite of GoT being officially over, it’s still streamed regularly today.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is a TV show and web series that certainly hit levels of popularity similar to what was and is seen with Game of Thrones. However, Breaking Bad’s success came via viewers tuning in to binge-watch the show. Breaking Bad had everything, from crime through to relationships between unlikely parties, such as the one seen between Walter and Jesse. And the great thing about Breaking Bad is that there is also Better Call Saul to watch after, which documents the life and rise of Saul Goodman, who’s one of the characters from Breaking Bad.

Stranger Things

Stranger Things is certainly one of the most popular and most streamed web series in recent times. And its numbers will likely have seen it top the charts on that front several times. Because the web series started to come into play in 2018, it was nearly the perfect fit for Stranger Things, a show that tells the story of a boy going missing, superpowers, and generally strange things going on. In terms of viewership where Stranger Things is concerned, you’re not just talking millions; you’re talking tens of millions comfortably, proving just how popular the show was, is, and continues to be.

The Walking Dead

What you will notice about the Walking Dead and the three others mentioned here is that they’re arguably some of the most popular TV series of all time. They’re the kind of shows that everyone has seen and probably binge-watched. And The Walking Dead, which ended last year, is another that ticks all the right boxes with aplomb. As everyone will gather from the title if they’ve not watched the show, The Walking Dead is all about a zombie apocalypse, with Rick Grimes, a cop, and survivors, setting out to find safety. You could say that the whole zombie genre was ironically brought back to life thanks to The Walking Dead.
