Starz’s ‘Outlander’ tops list of most in-demand period dramas

20 March, 2022

Period series have always been a staple of entertainment, but we’re seeing a resurgence right now of the popular genre. This has been apparent with the recent success of two new period dramas, HBO’s “The Gilded Age” and Paramount+’s “1883,” which both take place in 1880s America. So it’s a good time to take a look at the most in-demand period series — both dramas and comedies, according to Parrot Analytics data.

Despite the recent attention on these new premieres, Starz’s “Outlander” still tops the ranking of historical dramas, with 28.9 times the average series demand in February. High demand for this show in February came ahead of the show’s season 6 premiere on March 6 after a nearly two-year hiatus. In that time, earlier seasons had also become available to stream on Netflix.
