The 10 most popular series on Netflix this week: January 2024

The week of January 15th to January 21st, 2024, the top ten series chart on Netflix offers a diverse range of genres, from suspenseful dramas to animated adventures.

Leading the pack is the crime docuseries American Nightmare, holding the coveted first position for the first week since its debut. With a staggering 48.1million hours viewed, this gripping true crime documentary has left viewers horrified about the case that was wrongfully nicknamed the ‘Gone Girl case’ in the media and law enforcement. 

Fool Me Once has dropped down to the number two spot in the chart. This Harlan Coben adaptation may not be the most competent mystery story out there, but its massive popularity on the streaming platform has led to the announcement of two more Coben novel adaptations. The list this week also features another Coben adaptation, The Stranger, which secures the seventh spot.

Taking the third spot is the limited series Boy Swallows Universe. In its second week in the top ten, the series has accumulated 27.2million hours viewed, illustrating the enduring appeal of coming-of-age scapes.

The fourth position is secured by Yellowstone season one. This modern Western saga introduces viewers to the Duttons, who own the largest ranch in Montana and use a mix of business savvy, politics and violence to protect what is theirs. Yellowstone season two claims the ninth spot.

Byron Wu and Brad Falchuk’s The Brothers Sun claims the fifth spot this week. This tale of Taipei gangsters and family dynamics stars the incomparable Michelle Yeoh, along with Justin Chien and Sam Song Li.

Moving down the list, we have My Life With the Walter Boys season one at number six, having spent a whopping seven weeks in the top ten.

At number eight is Sonic Prime season three. This animated series has delighted 1.8 million viewers with its high-energy adventures and beloved characters.

Rounding off the top ten is Loudermilk season one, with 8million hours viewed in its debut week. This comedic series is having its resurgence on Netflix while it shops for a new network to tell its story beyond the first three seasons.
