When it comes to details on best-performing series, Netflix is notoriously secretive. But since GQ launched the Top 10 feature tab, we already know about what those on the streaming site are watching. In the past, the viewing statistics for Netflix focused on consumers consuming 70% of a film or series. Today, viewership counts whether anyone follows a title for 2 minutes.
Here are the highest-selling and most viewed shows on Netflix to take the guesswork out of what to screen to get your mind off the elections.
Top 8 Most Watched Netflix Originals
Extraction – 99 million views
To top the rankings, leave it to Chris Hemsworth. The Aussie Golden God can do no wrong, and it earned the best movie release for Netflix so far as Extraction reached the streaming site. For the first four weeks of publication, the projected 99 million views are.
Bird Box – 89 million views
And though it came out in 2018, Bird Box’s success has not waned. It’s also deemed one of the greatest perming movies or TV series of the streaming giant to date, which is not impossible to believe, given the number of memes the film spawned.
Underground – 83 million thoughts
Ryan Reynolds can say no wrong. Even though critics largely panned the film, it was still an immediate hit for Netflix due to Reynolds’ star strength and comic charisma and some major explosions.
Murder Mystery – 83 million views
Murder Mystery was the mega-success nobody saw coming, mixing Sandler’s comic humor with Jennifer Aniston’s star force. Ridiculous, a little stupid, and hilariously entertaining, the movie made an outstanding debut and, for weeks, ruled Netflix’s Top 10.
The Witcher – 76 million thoughts
Centered on the novel series and the same name’s video game, we knew from the early days that The Witcher would be tall. On Netflix’s YouTube site, each trailer was regularly the most-watched. Individuals were waiting for their next fix for Game of Thrones.
The Witcher is currently one of the top five most-watched Netflix titles in the entertainment giant’s history, and anticipation can only grow with a second season on the cards.
Money Heist (Season 4) – 65 million views
As it racks up an incredible 65 M expected views worldwide, the Spanish series continues to be Netflix’s darling series.
It has taken in almost as many as Money Heist Season 3, tailored to the pre-2 minute metric, although that’s probably not a reasonable approximation.
Restricted Series (Tiger King) – 64 million views
As a consequence of the coronavirus, it might have broken out at the same moment that we were all approaching lockout, but Tiger King dominated too much publicity. It was an afterthought of the global pandemic.
This documentary has taken the world by storm, but the viewing figures don’t necessarily reflect that. However, that’s not denying Tiger King his dues since it’s also the most-watched Netflix documentary film.
The Irishman – 64 million views
Netflix wasted no cost on The Irishman in an attempt to nab an Oscar. Although it was received critically, it didn’t arrive with quite the effect that many predicted. That said, when you consider the duration of the movie, viewing figures are fairly extraordinary and that 70 percent will need to be watched for such a statistic to be regarded.
