    What are Millennials’ and Gen Z’s favourite TV series of the moment?

    AFP – Fans of the small screen are never short of TV series to watch. Across the generations, American viewers are just as fond of new series as they are of older productions, it seems. But one series, in particular, seems to have proved a unanimous hit.

    Among the series currently airing in the United States (US), Stranger Things is a hit with both Generation Z and Millennials, according to the latest report from YPulse, titled Media Consumption Monitor.

    This result is perhaps not surprising, since the show’s fourth season has earned its place as the second most-watched series of all time on Netflix and the top English-language series on the platform.

    The show has clocked more than one billion hours of viewing. Plus, Stranger Things even inspired a Kate Bush comeback with the song Running Up That Hill, which featured prominently in the show’s fourth season.

    As a whole, younger viewers are more likely to list an animated series as their favourite, such as Family Guy, The Simpsons or even Rick And Morty, which comes third in the Gen Z ranking.

    According to the survey results, 35 per cent of Gen Z respondents watch cartoons weekly or more often, compared to 21 per cent of Millennials. The 18-24 year olds also favour series with characters closer in age to their own, such as Euphoria, Outer Banks and Cobra Kai.

    Among Millennials, fantasy and sci-fi series are doing well. If Stranger Things comes first, House of the Dragon, The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, The Walking Dead and The Handmaid’s Tale are all popular. This group also seems to be more attracted to drama series, which 32 per cent of them watch regularly, compared to 21 per cent of Gen Z.

    While new shows such as House Of The Dragon have clearly appealed to audiences, viewers also remain loyal to older shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and The Walking Dead, across all generations.
