Jupiter’s Legacy: Canceled Series Opens as Top Original Series in Nielsen Charts

‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ Opens as Top Original Series in Nielsen Charts

The rankings for May 3-9 come a day after the streamer comics creator Mark Millar announced the show wouldn’t go forward.

Jupiter’s Legacy was the top original series on Netflix for its premiere week, according to Nielsen.

That wasn’t enough, however, to keep the show gong.

The adaptation of Mark Millar’s superhero comic pulled in 696 million minutes of viewing time in the week of May 3-9 (it premiered May 7), edging out Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale (690 million) for the No. 1 ranking among original series on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon’s Prime Video and Disney+. The release of the rankings comes a day after Millar and Netflix announced Jupiter’s Legacy was done.

Netflix, which acquired Millar’s company Millarworld in 2017, also gave a series order to a live-action show based on his and Leinil Francis Yu’s Supercrooks.
