Netflix reveals its most popular movies and TV series

Istanbul, Turkey - July 03, 2020: Table with popcorn bottle and Netflix logo on TV. Netflix is a global provider of streaming movies and TV series.

Netflix has been making original content for 9 years now and has just revealed its top 10 original movies and TV series we love to binge.

It’s a rare peek; they’ve never released this kind of data before, which is based on the first 28 days of streaming after the series or movie is released.

Period drama Bridgerton is the most watched TV series, while Bird Box is the top movie.

Most of the entries are recent content, with the oldest being 10 Things I Hate About You from 2017.

Stranger Things, The Witcher and You also made it into the top 10 TV series list along with non-English language shows Lupin and Money Heist.

On the movie front, Extraction starring our very own Chris Hemsworth made it to the number 2 spot (and good news: a sequel is coming), while the rest of the ranking includes Enola Holmes (starring Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things), zombie gore fest Army of the Dead and surprise superhero hit The Old Guard starring Charlize Theron (also set for a sequel).

But keep an eye on Korean survival drama Squid Game, which Netflix says could become their biggest TV series ever given its massive popularity since its release only on the 17th of September. It's certainly going to be their top non-English language show according to Netflix.
