Due to the lockdown, the streaming platform rose to popularity in the last two to three years. Today, we’ll examine the prevailing trends in streaming services for the current year.

In today’s generation, almost everyone has successfully made a transition from watching broadcast TV to streaming applications. The content that is being consumed today is mostly online streaming. Streaming platforms have billions of subscribers and they will definitely rise in the long run.

What is the next big trend?

Till today we have witnessed a number of trends like the huge growth of the streaming platform, everyone has their own preference while watching content, substantial growth due to the pandemic, etc. Making money off of nostalgia is the next big thing we can see right now.

Trends for streaming platforms are expanding and shifting swiftly in a variety of ways. Be it movies and series from other countries, the quality of the movies, and how they are delivered to the users.

How makers are making money by using nostalgia?

The next big thing in streaming apps is how they are making an income from nostalgia. They are using the 80s, 90s, and 2000s movies or series stories and recreating them.

When we talk about nostalgia movies or series undoubtedly Netflix comes at the top, and the majority of the remade movies or series do gain popularity.

Some of the prime examples of nostalgia are:

  • Lightyear came out on June 17, 2022, and is based on the character from Toy Story, which everyone loved in their childhood.
  • Detective Pikachu came out on 3 May 2019, based on the franchise of Pokemon. Pokemon is an animated series and also a game.
  • Top Gun Maverick came out on 27 May 2022, It had its first part in the 1980s and now they have made another part, Top Gun Maverick.
  • Stranger Things season 1 came out on 16 July 2016, It is based on the story of the 80s, and that’s why it contains references to 80s pop culture
  • Cobra Kai season 1 came out on 2 May 2018, It used to be released on Youtube and now Netflix is releasing it on their own streaming platform.
  • Chilling Adventures of Sabrina came out on 26 October 2018, it was recreated by Sabrina the teenage witch in 1996.
  • Lion King, Jungle Book, Aladdin, Mulan, and Beauty and The Beast are all animated movies from our childhood that are now made into live-action movies. We spent weeks in a year watching these animated movies when we were kids.


The era of social media and digital platforms is increasing exponentially. We are more addicted to digital platforms and it’s other parts. Moreover, we are highly influenced by the celebrities. For instance, Alana Martina dos Santos Aveiro is only 6 year girlAlana Martina dos Santos Aveiro child of Cristiano Ronaldo. In that case, we are highly curious about her too.

This practice of modern makers is nothing new. Even before streaming sites existed, the same tactic was employed. The 2021 release of Dune, a remake of the 1984 film, serves as a prime example. Not only streaming apps but even traditional media use the same tactic. With the list of remakes announced we can conclude that the trend is not going anywhere soon. We can also conclude that making money from memorable movies is the biggest trend at present.
