​​The 10 most popular series on Netflix this week: April 2024

Tuning into Netflix this week, you might find yourself spoiled for choice with a variety of series vying for your attention. From the intense Baby Reindeer to the sci-fi hit 3 Body Problem, here are the top ten most popular series on Netflix for the week of April 15th to April 21st, 2024.

Starting off the countdown, we have Baby Reindeer, the smash-hit British drama-thriller that explores the harrowing experiences of its creator and star, Richard Gadd, in a fictional format. Drawing from Gadd’s real-life ordeal of being stalked and sexually assaulted, the series offers a raw and nuanced narrative that delves into mental health and the very human need for connection.

Next, we have Unlocked: A Jail Experiment, a reality series that pushes the boundaries of conventional incarceration in the US. Sheriff Eric Higgins’ radical proposal to allow incarcerated men unprecedented freedom within their unit sparks intrigue and controversy. With minimal supervision, the inmates navigate their newfound liberty in an open prison system, raising questions about rehabilitation and punishment.

3 Body Problem takes viewers on a mind-bending journey through the realms of science fiction. Based on Liu Cixin’s Hugo Award-winning novel, this Netflix series explores the themes of the first encounter with extraterrestrial life.

Switching gears, we have Heartbreak High, an Australian comedy-drama. A soft reboot of the beloved ’90s series, Heartbreak High, follows the trials and tribulations of students and teachers at Hartley High. From racial tensions to teenage romance, the series captures the essence of adolescence with authenticity and heart.

For fans of crime comedies, The Gentlemen delivers in spades. A spin-off of Guy Ritchie’s 2019 film, this series stars Theo James as Edward Horniman, the unexpected heir to a vast estate and title and a drug empire he was not aware of.

Bad Dinosaurs brings a unique blend of humour and prehistoric chaos to the streaming platform. Created by Joel Veitch, this animated comedy follows the misadventures of a Tyrannosaurus family as they navigate life in the wilderness. But there are more animated wonders on the list. Rounding out the top ten is CoComelon Lane, a charming series that has been delighting young audiences with its catchy tunes and colourful characters. 

Jimmy Carr takes centre stage in Natural Born Killer, a stand-up comedy special. Known for his edgy humour, Carr tackles taboo topics like cancel culture. In more reality TV, The Circle is out with a sixth season, where contestants strategise through fun challenges in pursuit of a cash prize. This reality competition is as entertaining as it is unpredictable. 

Whether you’re in the mood for drama, comedy, or something in between, there’s no shortage of entertainment to enjoy on streaming. So, what have you been bingeing on Netflix this week?
