Fauda becomes most watched non-English Netflix show

The season four of the hit Israeli television series Fauda is currently the most streamed Netflix show in Lebanon and has made Netflix’s of the most watched non-English shows around the world less than a week since its premiere on the streaming service.

Season four of Fauda, which premiered on Netflix on Jan. 20, was the seventh most watched foreign language show on Netflix from Jan. 16-22. It is also among the top 10 non-English television shows in 21 countries on Netflix, including Jordan, Qatar, Kenya, the United Arab Emirates, the Czech Republic, Cyprus and Serbia.

Netflix’s Fauda has become one of the most watched in Lebanon and various Arab countries.

According to JFC, the recent season 4 debuted last weekend and has climbed to the Lebanese ‘Most Watched List’ on the streamer.

Moreover, the show also trended in Saudi Arabia and raked in strong viewership from UAE.

Previously, the series’s co-creator said about its popularity, “I think part of it is the language, which means that ‘Fauda’ has crossed over into the Arabic language, and we are also bringing the story on both sides, not just from the Israeli side.”

To match the show’s popularity in the region, Hamas has come up with its version of the show, titled Fist of the Free.

The 30-episode series, created by the Al-Aqsa network, rejects the comparison.

“The idea of our films and series centers on our struggle with the enemy… We are not responding to them in their Fauda program,” the assistant director of the show told AFP.

Fauda season four takes the cast to Lebanon and Belgium and returns to the West Bank.
