It's been gaining currency for a while now, long before that show.  Like board games, there has been a long running increase in pasttimes that bring people together.  A lot of us want contact and companionship in real life, not just virtually.

Celebrity nerds were the start of it. Will Wheaton has (had) a youtube channel all about playing board games and D&D with minor celebrities. That expanded out into The McElroy brothers being non-threatening weirdos and voice actor Matt Mercer running their own campaigns that people loved watching.

Now everyone is streaming their campaigns on the Twitch or the youtubes.

Someone bought me last year's edition, or I wouldn't even have that...and I was a die-hard player for decades. No innovation beyond pandering to microtransactions to make even more money. I daresay they had better features and comparable gameplay dating back to the early 2000s.
