Netflix has changed the perception of the viewers for the past many years. Especially during pandemics, Netflix has been a savior for several people. But now that it has changed some policies, it’s losing the faith of the subscribers. Now that Netflix wants its own franchise, the viewers are a little skeptical about it. The reason is weird but understandable. Let us find out more about it.
Netflix wants to create THIS franchise but fans are skeptical!
As the viewers know, Netflix is determined to expand its reach in various genres. Now, Netflix wants to create its own franchise like ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Harry Potter like movies and shows. Netflix has expressed its will, but it seems difficult as the major loss in subscribers has decreased the popularity of the streaming giant.
Netflix are hoping to launch their own iconic franchise.
“We want to have our version of ‘Star Wars’ or our version of ‘Harry Potter,’ and we're working very hard to build that. But those are not built overnight.”

Some current partners at the streaming giant have requested anonymity to protect their ongoing business relationships. It also frustrated them to see the lack of collaboration between the film and the TV groups. A studio executive said, “It feels as if you have to fight your way into building a franchise there.” Netflix is trying to build a franchise that would have its own identity. They promise to be working very hard. And also say, “Netflix is a very young organization, those walls just never had time to be built.”
Now that the fans got the news, they are skeptical about Netflix’s intentions. They have lost faith as Netflix keeps on canceling the popular shows and doesn’t even renew their own original shows. This is how a viewer expressed her dissatisfaction.

A franchise is not something that one plans. Says this viewer and tries to make a point.
A franchise isn’t something you strategically plan. It normally unexpectedly grasps a fan base out of nowhere which become hooked by the story and the characters, but I don’t think you can intentionally make a story and characters to specifically form this. Need to be natural imo

This user has some suggestions as well for the streaming giant.
I agree. Stop killing shows at 2 seasons. Also, kill the binge model. Weekly release format allows show to marinate and keep people talking/buzzing.

This viewer says that Netflix doesn’t care about connectivity. It only wants money and wants to get its subscribers back.
did they not manage to achieve that with bridgerton though? netflix is ultimately not looking to build a legacy, they’re looking to gain all their subscribers back after they left them for disney+ and HBO max. they just want money and they don’t know how to connect w their target

The fans’ reactions are harsh and very doubtful. But what is your view of this hopefully potential situation? Do you think Netflix would be successful in this endeavor?
