Despite losing some 400,000 subscribers in the US and Canada, Netflix regained the numbers and more in the Asia-Pacific region with over 1.5 million new users.

A week after Netflix revealed it lost half a million Western users but gains more viewers in Asia, rumors have been circulating about new shows mostly on Asia-Pacific pop culture.

Despite losing some 400,000 subscribers in the US and Canada, Netflix regained the numbers and more in the Asia-Pacific region with over 1.5 million new users.

Some have speculated about the slew of new streaming services in the US that have yet to reach most parts of Asia.

To name a few, Disney+, HBO Max, and YouTube TV.

The company now seems to have refocused marketing towards the region with several shows reportedly to be in development.

First of which is a live-action Pokémon series by Joe Henderson, who is currently the co-showrunner and executive producer of Lucifer.

This is the second rumored show that partners Netflix with Nintendo after the latter pulled the plug on a live-action Legend of Zelda back in 2015.

Fans speculate that Nintendo would not cancel the show over a leak given the success of other game-driven shows that Netflix has produced such as The Witcher, Castlevania.

Other shows like Tomb Raider and Resident Evil are still in the works.

Another rumor is that Netflix has tapped BioWare and EA for their Dragon Age series while a fourth installment of the game is currently in the works.

The report, however, lacked details other than claiming the show is in “active development right now.”

The same source also claims that a live-action series based on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy games albeit with even fewer details as to how far Netflix is in the development schedule.

Kingdom, Netflix’s popular South Korean title is also reported to get a brand new spin-off titled Kingdom: The Crown Prince.

The company has not confirmed the report but could most likely be waiting for the response to Kingdom: Ashin of the North, the latest spin-off movie.

Like most rumors, fans will have to take it with a grain of salt as these titles could just be a sign that Netflix is now focusing on their growing subscriber base in Asia.

Filipinos are also watching out what’s next for Netflix’s original Tagalog movies after the success of Alessandra de Rossi’s My Amanda that launched earlier this month.
