3 Body Problem Makes A Rare Move On Netflix

The fact that Netflix’s latest sci-fi adaptation is gaining momentum after a relatively quiet release makes sense. The slow-burn first half of Season 1 introduces the ensemble cast of characters (many of whom are different from or amalgamations of their book counterparts) and establishes the story, setting the stage and preparing for the events that are about to unfold. By Episode 5, “Judgment Day,” the action quickly becomes so intense that it had Netflix users warning each other to brace themselves. By the end of the season, the alien invasion narrative is in full swing, and the cliffhanger season finale leaves audiences begging for more. 

It’s no surprise that two weeks in, the show remains as hot as ever as fans eagerly consume the first eight episodes and make a Season 2 renewal more likely by the day. But this doesn’t change the fact that reclaiming that coveted top spot on the charts is impressive. Since the beginning of 2023, only a few shows have repeated the feat (according to Netflix’s Top 10 chart). “You” did so in March, while “The Witcher” and “The Lincoln Lawyer” made comebacks in the summer. Since then, no show has reached the top and then come back for a second reign. 

Netflix added that “3 Body Problem” remained on the Top 10 list in 93 countries during the final week of March. This is all good news for the team behind the sci-fi smash hit, and it bodes well for the saga’s future on the streamer.
