Lists

10 most popular series on Netflix this week: May 2022

The last seven days have been exciting for content on Netflix, and here are the hottest shows on the world’s favourite streaming service. 

Every week Best of Netflix will bring you the list of the ten most popular series on Netflix across the globe. From new releases to old favourites, these are the shows storming the charts and generating conversations on social media.

Everybody has been talking about Ozark following the release of the second part of the fourth and final season finished on April 29th. This week marks its ninth appearance on the Top 10s chart, and so far, it has been streamed for over a whopping 102 million hours.

The show, which stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, has gained a reputation for its gruesome violence and brutal scenes. The drama’s epic finale delivers on that front and is full of bloodshed. 

Bateman recently talked about how he has been recently bingeing the first season of Ozark with his daughter, and he’s not the only one. The Netflix viewers are also going back to the start and have watched the first series for 13.6 million hours. 

The seventh season of Grace and Frankie also bids a bittersweet adieu to the heartwarming series starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Astonishingly, it has already been consumed for a mind-blowing 23 million hours, which proves the show is a firm favourite among Netflix viewers thanks to its brilliant commentary on ageism, friendship and love. 

Created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, Bridgerton seasons one and two are still reigning supreme in the hearts of Netflix viewers who seemingly cannot get enough of the grandeur and intricate details of Regency-era romance.

Based on Julia Quinn’s novels, the two seasons have followed the romantic pursuits of the eldest Bridgerton daughter, Daphne and her older brother, Anthony. According to Rhimes, the show has already been renewed for two more seasons and could go on for eight seasons. 

Netflix viewers are pretty enamoured by the property market in Los Angeles and the struggles of real-estate agents trying to make a living there in Selling Sunset. The fifth season of the binge-able reality series is in the second position with a stream time of 17 million hours.
