In less than a week, The Twilight Saga has taken over half of Netflix’s top 10 most popular titles. The five-part vampire novel series began with the release of the original Twilight in 2008. Four sequels would follow over the next few years, concluding: The Twilight Series Breaking Dawn Part 2 in 2012. All five films began streaming on Netflix on July 16, bringing the saga back to the forefront of pop culture, with fans reliving the series.
Just five days later The Twilight Saga started streaming on Netflix, Twilight currently ranks #3 in the streamer’s top 10 in the US title list. The four sequels are also all there, taking up literally half of the list with five overall spots. The Twilight Saga: New Moon follows no. 6, with eclipse at no. 7, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 at no. 8, and Breaking Dawn – Part 1 at no. 10.
The other titles making the list include: Virgin River at No. 1, Never have I ever at no. 2, manifest at no. 4, Anywhere at no. 5, and Gunpowder Milkshake at no. 9.
mainly, The Twilight Saga tells the story of a love triangle between human teenage girl Bella Swan (Kristin Stewart), vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), and werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Other major cast members of the series include Ashley Greene, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Anna Kendrick, Jackson Rathbone, Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning.
The Twilight Saga is based on Stephenie Meyer’s original novel series with Melissa Rosenberg writing all five episodes of the film series. Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, David Slade and Bill Condon were directors. Although the films have often been criticized, their success cannot be denied, such as: The Twilight Saga has raised more than $3.3 billion worldwide. Even nearly a full decade after the last film’s release, it’s clearly still very popular with fans.
Kristin Stewart has since gone on to star in films like Charlie’s Angels, Underwater, and Happiest Season. She will next be seen as Princess Di in the upcoming biopic Spencer. Robert Pattinson also plays a very big role along the way, as he plays the role of Bruce Wayne in the batter, one of the most anticipated releases of 2022. His other recent credits include: High life, The lighthouse, and basic principle. Meanwhile, Taylor Lautner has had starring roles in the TV shows Cuckoo and scream queen and starred in the drama Enter the tide.
A continuation on Twilight doesn’t seem likely at this point, though not every cast member has given up on the idea. Last year, Peter Facinelli, who named the vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen played that he would return to the role “in an instant” if the opportunity presented itself. Still, he admits time may be running out, because he’s only human, after all.
“I like that character. [He’s] so fun to play and that world is so fun,” Facinelli told People.[But] vampires are not supposed to grow old. It’s been ten years and everyone has gotten older.” Maybe there won’t be a sequel with the original cast, but fans will always The Twilight Saga. All five episodes of The Twilight Saga currently streaming on Netflix.
