When Riot Games released Act 1 (episodes 1-3) of its League of Legends animated series Arcane on Netflix last week, the show was showered with praises from both fans and critics. Act 2 (episodes 4-6) of the series have reached even greater heights than the first three episodes. While Act 1 of the show reached No. 1 on the global Netflix TV charts with 38 No. 1 rankings in individual countries, Act 2 has shown more momentum.
According to Flixpatrol, Arcane retakes the #1 spot on the Netflix Top 10 worldwide. Riot's animated series surpassed major streaming shows like Squid Game (#2), Narcos: Mexico (#3), You (#4), and Animal (#5).
After Arcane premiered its first three episodes, the series debuted at No. 1 at the charts for 38 different countries, which made it good enough to rank the animated series at No. 1 on the global chart, but Act 2 raises the bar, taking the show to the top of the charts in 52 different countries:
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- Dominican Republic
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Korea
When Act 1 premiered last week, Arcane debuted in No. 8, but now the show is #2 on Netflix U.S. charts, and it's currently #1 in both South Korea and Canada.
The first two Acts of Arcane are clearly a huge success for both Riot Games and Netflix. With the final Act coming this weekend, it would be interesting to see how the series will dominate the charts worldwide.
The third act of Arcane will premiere on Netflix this Saturday, Nov. 20. You can read more details about Arcane here.
