News - Netflix to Focus its Originals on Fantasy / SciFi

Here are the bullet points from Business Insider (full article at the link):

  • Science fiction and fantasy" became the most popular genre of Netflix original show among subscribers in Q1 of 2018, according to data compiled by the analytics firm Ampere Analysis.
  • Netflix has been able to "anticipate" an increase in demand for the genre by rapidly expanding its production of original sci-fi and fantasy shows and movies, according to Ampere.
  • More than one quarter (29%) of upcoming Netflix originals are in the sci-fi and fantasy category, higher than any other genre.
It's a good time to be a fan of Fantasy and SciFi :)


  1. Makes sense. There's so little of it out there of any quality, and Netflix seems to have a pretty good "standard" for these types of shows.

  2. Hopefully they'll avoid the low budget sci-fi channel route.
