When it comes to series ratings, many people first look at the IMDB – after all, countless film and series fans regularly submit their ratings on the international database site. Recently on the IMDB We also took stock of which of the series that got a new season in the first half of 2022 are the best overall. It is important to note that only current series that have received NEW seasons were taken into account, not debut series.
And even if “Stranger Things“ scored excellently with 8.7 out of 10 possible points – two series with new seasons each achieved an even better rating, and both were also released on Netflix in Germany.
1st and 2nd place in the ranking are occupied by “Peaky Blinders: Gangs Of Birmingham” and “Better Call Saul“ with 8.8 points each, whereby “Peaky Blinders“ more votes and therefore has the edge. We run both series as Netflix originals, although they are actually not Netflix in-house productions – but their home broadcasters, namely the BBC at “Peaky Blinders’ and AMC at ‘Better Call Saul”, does not exist in Germany and many other markets, which is why Netflix broadcasts the series here as the original.
“Stranger Things’ ranks only 3rd among the best returning series in the first half of 2022. Incidentally, we assume that the final two episodes of the fourth “Stranger Things”-Season were taken into account, although these only started on July 1st, i.e. in the second half of the year to be precise. the List was from the IMDB laid out at the end of Junebut updated three weeks ago – and the ratings of the series in this list are also the current ratings if you click on the respective series pages.
Incidentally, places 4 and 5 are firmly in the hands of Amazon Prime Video: In fourth place is “The Boys”, ranked 5 “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel“. These series also score 8.7 points in the overall ranking.
Of course it is IMDB not the only platform on which fans can submit their ratings – there would also be, for example, the popular review collection sites rotten tomatoes, Metacritic and of course MOVIE STARTS, which might result in a different ranking. “Stranger Things” but with its successful fourth season should be included in each of these leaderboards – and the grand finale is still ahead of us!
With the launch of the fifth and final season of “Stranger ThingsHowever, we do not expect it until 2024. Until then, you can perhaps console yourself with other series and films on Netflix – for example the new additions in August:
