Clickbait: People Are Obsessed With Netflix's New Thriller

We've found your next TV obsession! Netflix’ new thriller Clickbait sees a husband and father kidnapped and broadcasted across the internet – and fans are obsessed with the major plot twists and dark storylines involved.

Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier), who is pegged at the beginning of the series as the perfect family man, is kidnapped by anonymous people who post a video of him online holding a sign that says “At five million views, I die.”

Later, more videos are posted that make allegations against Nick concerning abuse and murder, which shakes his family to their core as they try to find out where Nick is and who is behind the kidnapping.

The eight-episode mini-series premiered on Netflix on 25th August and is currently No.1 in the UK on the streaming service. 

Viewers of the show have become detectives in their own right, trying to decipher the various clues left in each episode to work out whether Nick is a victim or a criminal, and who may have wished him harm. 

Many have said that Clickbait is “the best Netflix series in recent memory” and definitely “won’t disappoint” – it’s the ending that has everyone particularly shocked, as some have said it was completely unexpected.

Another wrote: “Plot twist on plot twist on plot f***ing twist with a side of what the f***." Most on Twitter have “binged” the whole series, saying they originally “underestimated the show”, encouraging others to watch the show as soon as possible.

A third Twitter user said: “Overall, can recommend. What worked, really worked. The difference POVs are fantastically written, beautifully honed in on the individual. The cast is phenomenal."

Despite everyone’s obsession with the show, it is by no means perfect as quite a few tweets mention one character being particularly unlikeable: Pia Brewer (Zoe Kazan), Nick’s sister.

But, that has not stopped them from watching the show and hoping for its creators to figure out some way of continuing the story in a new season.

Clickbait is available to stream on Netflix.
