“Dahmer” Rises To Become The Second Most Watched English-Language Series on Netflix ever

Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a recent Netflix original series, has recently passed Stranger Things 4 to rank as the second-most watched English-language program on the platform overall in addition to becoming the fourth-most watched Netflix program in different languages.


701.37 million hours have been spent watching Dahmer's debut since September 21. In contrast, the first 28 days of Stranger Things 4 saw 1.35 billion hours of viewing. 

The most popular English-language series on the streaming service is just Stranger Things 4. Squid Game, a well-liked South Korean series, has received more than 1.65 billion hours of viewing in its first 28 days, maintaining its top position overall.


Nothing new on the charts comes even close to how dominant "Dahmer" has been. In contrast to other series, "Dahmer" rarely receives further seasons. If the program wins an Emmy, it will be intriguing to watch how Netflix expands on it. 


Netflix decided to amuse a certain audience that was curious to learn more about the real-life serial murderer. Living relatives of the victims came out in numbers to protest. However, the platforms are currently being ignited by "Dahmer."


Dahmer, which is based on true events, stars Evan Peters as the titular serial murderer Jeffrey Dahmer. Developed by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, the series tells the story of Dahmer's murders between 1978 and 1991 mostly from the viewpoint of Dahmer's victims. According to the Netflix description, "the series, which is a fictitious retelling of true events, will also take a critical look at systemic racism, white privilege, homophobia, and the institutional failings that permitted Dahmer to kill and dismember 17 boys and men."


The program has lately been under fire from Tony Hughes' mother for its opportunistic treatment of Dahmer's killings. Tony Hughes was one of Dahmer's victims. Shirley Hughes told The Guardian, "I don't see how they can do it." "I don't see how they can take our names and spread information like that." She said that the murder of her son by Dahmer in 1991 "didn't happen" exactly how it was portrayed in the series.


The cousin of Errol Lindsey, a victim of Dahmer, Eric Perry, also disclosed on Twitter that the relatives of his victims were not consulted or alerted. “Okay, I didn't think the tweet would draw that much attention. No, they don't inform families when they do this, to address the primary query. They don't have to inform (or compensate!) anyone because everything is public record. My family learned about it after everyone else," Perry wrote. “Currently, a rush of calls and messages alerting my cousins about the impending date of another Dahmer exhibition wakes them up once every few months. It's vicious.”


According to a 1992 Associated Press article, Dahmer confessed to 17 murders at the time of his arrest in July 1991. He said that he had indulged in necrophilia and cannibalism with several of his victims. In November 1994, a fellow prisoner at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin, beat Dahmer to death.
