The top 10 most-watched TV shows on Netflix right now

@Russellisation

The unusually tight-lipped media giant Netflix has revealed their 10 most-watched TV shows on the streaming service right now, with NBC drama Manifest topping the current list. 

Following a commercial airliner that suddenly reappears after being missing for five years, only for the survivors to experience mysterious guiding voices in their heads, Manifest began in 2018 with its third and final series having aired in June 2021. Passionate fans of the show, nicknamed “manifesters”, have since inundated show creator Jeff Rake on social media with everything from praise to ideas about how to move a potential fourth series forward. 

With the series proving so successful on Netflix, many fans of the show were hoping that the streaming service might pick the series back up for a fourth season, though unfortunately for fans it looks like this may not happen. Though, this is not to say that there is no future for Manifest at all, with calls for Rake to consider a book series or podcast, with always the chance that a different TV company could take a crack at a new series. 

Other high-ranking shows include the ever-popular reality dating format, with the recent series of Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle, following a group of young attractive individuals who cannot engage in physical contact, proving once again successful in its second series.  

Fantasy series Sweet Tooth is also enjoying a healthy existence on the streaming platform at number four, a series following a boy, half-human and half-deer, surviving in a post-apocalyptic world with other hybrids. The series represents a move toward more ambitious fantasy projects from the streaming service, joining Lucifer and The Witcher, as it looks to compete with the big-budget projects of other TV studios.
