Marvel Studios' decision to open the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4 with WandaVision may have sounded a little too daring at first but as the Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany series progresses, it's already becoming quite evident that Kevin Feige and the people behind the show made the right call.

Debuting last January, the series started off at a slow pace which felt a little weird and confusing to a lot of fans who were used to the franchise's tried and tested formula. However, a lot of skeptics have learned to embrace WandaVision, especially after the third episode when things went from silly to downright serious in just a snap.

Now, just a month after the show premiered, it's already considered as one of the most popular shows in the United States. According to a new stat from Parrot Analytics (via The Direct), WandaVision was the third most in-demand show in the US last week, besting other shows like Stranger Things, Titans, and Lucifer.

Not only that, but the stat also reveals that the MCU series is 60 times more in-demand than an average television program. The most surprising bit about this is WandaVision is not too far behind The Mandalorian and it's close to surpassing the Star Wars spinoff series in terms of popularity.

In my personal view, the reason behind the show's growing popularity can probably be attributed to two factors. First, it's no secret that Marvel fans experienced a long and agonizing content drought from the studio which lasted over 500 days and a lot of people totally felt refreshed after finally seeing a new MCU project.

Secondly, we can't deny the fact that the show is just too good and it keeps viewers wanting more. Also, it gets more and more compelling as we approach the finale. Marvel Studios totally made the right move and we can only expect to see the show's popularity grow exponentially in the coming weeks leading up to the final episode.
