Due to the pandemic, more people have been watching movies and TV in the comfort of their own homes than ever before, and the holiday season was no exception. Netflix has revealed viewing data for two of their most popular holiday releases — Bridgerton and We Can Be Heroes. The Shonda Rhimes produced TV series is projected to be watched by 63 million households across its first 28 days, while We Can Be Heroes is projected to be watched by 44 million households in that same period.
While Bridgerton hasn’t yet been officially renewed for a second season, Netflix is already developing a sequel to We Can Be Heroes with Robert Rodriguez set to return. Rodriguez wrote, produced, and directed the film, which was something of a spin-off of the Spy Kids franchise and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. The superhero film followed the children of Earth’s superheroes being whisked away to a government safe house when alien invaders kidnap their parents. “But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno,” reads Netflix’s synopsis. “Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada. If they’re going to save their parents, they’ll have to work together by using their individual powers – from elasticity to time control to predicting the future – and form an out-of-this-world team.“
