Amazon Prime Video series overtakes ALL Netflix series and becomes MOST VIEWED of 2021

“The Wheel of Time,” starring Rosamund Pike, became one of the most successful series not only on Prime Video, but also of 2021.

According to a recent report from Nielsen, the series was the most watched of all streaming platforms between November 15 and 21 (and it’s worth remembering that it didn’t debut until November 19).

During this period, the production aired for over 1.1 billion minutes, almost doubling the second-place minutes (the 2nd season of ‘The Mafia of the Tigers’, with 685 million).

This dominance is even more impressive considering that “The Wheel of Time” has fewer episodes than the other titles that have appeared on the list. Prime Video only released three chapters for the production debut, while the rest aired weekly. At the time, “You” and “Narcos: Mexico” already had thirty episodes available, while “The Tiger Mafia” had 13 and “The Great British Baking Show” 74 (all of which were in the report).
