Web series

A web series is, by definition, a run of scripted or unscripted online videos that are published online and typically in episodic form. Web series are a subset of the web television medium, which first appeared in the late 1990s and gained popularity in the early 2000s. I An episode or “webisode” is the name for a single instalment of a web series programme, but the latter term is less common. In general, a variety of platforms and devices, including desktop, laptop, tablets, and smartphones, can be used to watch web series. They are also available for television viewing.
Web series have a special place in the history of modern entertainment because of how common and popular they are. According to statistics, Netflix, a well-known OTT platform, has reached 65% of US households, and the average American between the ages of 18 and 34 spends two hours per day on the streaming service. According to reports, Netflix had close to 150 million customers worldwide in 2019. One can only speculate as to how many customers the pandemic crisis may have affected given the monotony of quarantine and the resulting lack of movies and television series being produced; the real numbers have not yet been released.
There are many factors contributing to this frightening popularity, starting with the fact that these programmes are shorter in length and hence more suited to the attention span of the younger audience. Second, audiences are intrigued by their suspenseful storylines, original content, and creative strategies. Additionally, they have made room for fresher performers to emerge and command attention.
