We learned last month that the series based on the My Chemical Romance frontman and illustrator Gabriel Bá’s series racked up about 45 million viewers in the first four weeks it was available on the platform.

To put that into perspective, similar popular titles like Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Our Planet only raked in up to 25 million households viewing each respective show. Netflix considers a “view” when around 70% of the show’s runtime has been viewed.

That means the show has been something of a smash, then, so its creators should be quite proud. That’s probably part of what went into the decision to renew the show for a second season, after all.

When do you think season two will be complete? Sound off in the comments below!
