Maid to dethrone The Queen’s Gambit as Netflix’s most-watched miniseries


Margaret Qualley stars in Maid.


Another Netflix record is about to be broken (according to Netflix, of course). Maid, with Margaret Qualley, is on the verge of overtaking The Queen’s Gambit as Netflix’s most-watched limited series, the streamer revealed on Tuesday during its last results report.

Maid is a 10-episode drama based on the memoir of Stephanie Land Housekeeper: hard work, low wages and a mother’s will to survive. It follows Alex, played by Qualley, a young mother who turns to housekeeping to make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy.

Maid is set to be watched by 67 million accounts in its first 28 days of release (it launched on October 1), according to Netflix. The Queen’s Gambit, which currently holds the record for the most watched miniseries on Netflix, was watched by 62 million accounts in its first four weeks of release (it launched on October 23, 2020).

Netflix also noted that Money Heist season 5 has been watched by 69 million accounts and Sex Education season 3 has been watched by 55 million accounts.

Netflix revealed that after 28 days a sensational South Korean survival drama Squid game has now reached 142 million accounts, making it Netflix’s most-watched original by far. He had already beaten Bridgerton’s 82 million accounts a week ago.
