Nebraska: Top show in 2018
In 2018, Stranger Things was one of the most popular shows in Nebraska. This was after season 2 came out, so everyone was excited for more monsters and kids fighting them and to see the aftermath of Will being back and what that final scene in season 1 meant. According to a study done by HighSpeedInternet.com, Nebraska was one of the states that loved the show the most that year.
Colorado, Utah, and Idaho tied with The Cornhusker State for liking the show the most. Unfortunately, the popularity didn’t stick in the last two years. In 2019, Nebraskans watched The Umbrella Academy the most, and in 2020, they were all about Orange is the New Black. Hey, not everyone liked season 3, we get it Nebraska.
Also, the pandemic coming in 2020 probably changed lots of peoples’ viewing habits and the majority of people in Nebraska wanted to watch OITNB. It’s interesting, though, because if you look at the states that tied with Nebraska in 2018, both Idaho and Utah stuck with Stranger Things as their most popular show, but Nebraska and Colorado changed over the past two years.
While we probably won’t get season 4 this year, Nebraska still has a chance to make it their favorite show for 2021 when the new season does come out. Hopefully 2021. Let’s be optimistic here!
