10 most popular series on Netflix this week: June 2022

Netflix is seemingly unfettered by the huge subscriber exodus and falling stock prices that have caused great financial losses. While the streamer has been stealthily cancelling productions and laying off employees, they are consistently adding new titles in June 2022 to fill their shelves. 

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. 

Stranger Things dropped the first volume of its fourth season. Comprising seven episodes, the first volume amassed an unfathomable viewership of 335 million hours. One of the most anticipated drops, Stranger Things season four is on its way to smashing Netflix records. 

Topping global charts for the second time since its release, the fourth season is set across three locations, namely Hawkins, California and Kamchatka in Russia. Darker, gorier and scarier, the first seven episodes uphold the terrors of a harrowing monster named Vecna who unleashes his wrath on Hawkins by preying on various lives. 

Stranger Things will drop its second volume of the fourth season on July 1st, 2022. Each season of the series has occupied the top four spots on the charts. The first season has been viewed for 75 million hours, followed by the second with a viewership of 58 million hours and the third season with a whopping 47 million hours. 

Starring Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Maya Hawke, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer and others, this Duffer brothers creation is surely one of Netflix’s most popular and sensational gems. Viewers are excited to catch up with the events of the first three seasons before taking a deep dive into the horrors presented by the fourth season. 

David E. Kelley and Ted Humphrey’s series adaptation of Matthew McConaughey’s eponymous 2011 film, The Lincoln Lawyer has been viewed for 42 million hours, appearing on the charts for the fifth time in a row. 

The second season of Bridgerton, too, has found its way back into the charts with a 9.9 million hours viewership, closely following Ozark season four which has been on the charts for 13 weeks in a row.
