With 30,000 monthly searches, the adventures of Din Djarin and Grogu will be returning to Disney + on February 22, 2023. The release date was confirmed by creator Jon Favreau.
With the villainous Moff Gideon (presumably) defeated, fans of the show are speculating which direction the show will go in. However, fast-paced interstellar Star Wars action is a guarantee.
3 - Clarkson’s Farm (Season 2) - 35,000 monthly searches
Jeremy Clarkson, former star of Top Gear, surprised everyone when he announced he’d be hosting a farming show. However, it was a success - and people are eagerly awaiting Season 2.

1 - Squid Game (Season 2) - 75,000 monthly searches
Topping the list and dwarfing the competition is Squid Game, the ultra-popular South Korean survival drama. Most of the cast of Season 1 were killed off during its run - leaving fans wondering how they will continue the show.
The inaugural season of Squid Game saw Gi-Hun win the titular Squid Game in a bittersweet manner. Will he be looking for revenge in Season 2? With no release date, fans may have to wonder for some time.
