The 10 most popular series on Netflix this week: April 2023

There are always moments in the Netflix calendar when a seismic change happens. For the last weeks, we have experienced that change in the most popular charts as a brand new series becomes a contender for one of the streaming platform’s best.

However, before we dive into the wild success of The Night Agent, let’s talk about the rest of the top ten this week. We have four new entries in the chart, with the first seasons of Unstable, Wellmania, Emergency NYC and Unseen with 70million hours of viewing spread between them.

The fourth season of Love Is Blind is enjoying its second week in the top ten at number two and 47.6miillion hours of viewing. One step down is Shadow and Bone with 27million hours of viewing, while Outer Banks’ third season may well drop out of next week’s list at number ten.

The rest of the chart is dominated by three of Netflix’s best-ever series. The fourth season of You continues to linger in the charts in fifth position, grabbing another 18.2million hours of viewing, proving that Joe Goldberg is a huge draw no matter what side of the pond he is on.

Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday is experiencing an unprecedented 18th week in the most popular charts as audiences scramble to see this possibly generation-defining show. Quirky and morbid in equal measure, the creepy series is the perfect antidote to an empty weekend.

But the week’s biggest story is undoubtedly The Night Agent, which has rubber-stamped itself as the most important release of 2023 so far, bagging another 216.4million hours of viewing. This is a 50million increase on its premiere week and shows that news of the action-packed series is spreading. Simply put, if you haven’t seen The Night Agent yet, now is the time to settle down with a bingeworthy series.
