For Netflix , recovering from the post-pandemic slump is proving to be a complicated plotline.

Netflix said Tuesday in its third-quarter report that 142 million households chose to watch the series in its first month, blowing past the 82 million who watched the company’s previous record holder, “Bridgerton.”
