The Watcher premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2022, and it’s one of the most popular series of all time. The Netflix original series currently sits at No. 10 on the list of the Netflix Top 10 all-time with just about 450 million hours watched in its first month on Netflix.

The Watcher is based on the true story of the family who lived in the house at 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey. The homeowners start receiving mysterious letters from “The Watcher,” who is also tormenting them.

The Watcher season 2 is officially in the works on Netflix. We still don’t know a lot of the details about the series, but we’re anxiously awaiting the second season of the hit series. We’ll share more details about the second season when we find out.

If you like weird, creepy, and more than a little campy, The Watcher is the show for you on Netflix.

Verdict: Watch
