Henry Cavill and The Witcher: Over 100 Million Tune In On Netflix


Wow, good news for Henry Cavill and The Witcher as Netflix releases viewing numbers offering the series is its biggest new show.

During the company’s investors call on Tuesday, Netflix let it be known that 76 million member households chose to watch the action-fantasy series.

If we assume that at least half of those households had more than one person watching, that would mean over 100 million people tuned in to watch Henry Cavill and The Witcher series.

The number could actually be a lot higher obviously if households have numerous people watching the show.
