Netflix added 4.38 million paid subscribers in the third quarter of 2021, thanks in large part to a stronger slate of programming, to finish the three-month period ending September 30 with 213.56 million total subscribers. Analysts were expecting closer to 3.72 million new subs.

Revenue for the period was $7.48 billion, an increase of 16 percent over the $6.44 billion generated in the year-ago quarter. Operating income, meanwhile, rose 33 percent, from $1.32 billion to $1.76 billion. Earnings per share checked in at $3.19, compared to Wall Street’s expectations of $2.56, and $1.74 during the same quarter a year earlier.
