Why I am leaving ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ for Netflix
Posted On July 3, 2021
The show has not had a big ratings bump in the US since its revival on HBO in 2010, but it is getting some international traction with its latest season.
The Netflix original series, which stars Jeff Daniels as a writer-producer on a show called ‘Cufflinks’, has been watched by more than 5 million people in the past four months.
“It’s really good,” said Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos during a panel at the Netflix Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday.
“It has a lot of unique characters, a lot more unique stories.”
Netflix says it is currently working with HBO on a third season of ‘Caballero’, a show that will air on the streaming service in 2019.
Netflix will launch a ‘Cabballero’ streaming series in 2019 with a new cast and a new season.
The first season was watched by 2.2 million people worldwide, up from 2.1 million people last season, while the second season was also watched by nearly 1 million people, up about 60 percent from last year.
In the past, Netflix has tried to boost its domestic subscriber base by expanding its shows into countries outside of the US, but the shows have struggled to do so.
According to Netflix, its original shows and movies are the second most watched TV show in the world behind the BBC’s Sherlock and the HBO series Game of Thrones.
On Wednesday, Netflix also announced that its original series ‘Babylon 5’ will be available on the service starting next year.
