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

With March 2024 coming to a close, let’s dive into the pulse of what’s been causing Netflix viewers to binge-watch for hours on end.

Topping the charts is 3 Body Problem season one, a riveting science fiction series that has climbed up to the number one spot. Directed by David Benioff, DB Weiss, and Alexander Woo, this adaptation of Liu Cixin’s acclaimed novel explores the complexities of human interaction with extraterrestrial civilisations, offering a mind-bending journey through time and space.

Following closely behind is Testament: The Story of Moses, a retelling of one of history’s most iconic tales. Despite being labelled as a documentary, viewers should take this as an indication of the format rather than its content. There is no direct archaeological evidence confirming the existence of Moses. Many scholars believe that even if he may have been an actual historical figure, several details of his life and deeds are possibly embellished or mythologised over time.

In the third spot is Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen, season one. The crime drama is still going strong in the top ten but has lost its number one claim to 3 Body Problem.

Meanwhile, Homicide: New York continues to command attention with its gritty portrayal of law enforcement in the Big Apple. Rounding out the top five is the live-action adaptation of the timeless classic Avatar: The Last Airbender season one. 

The rest of the list is loaded with content for the kids, from the whimsical world of Gabby’s Dollhouse season nine to the prehistoric adventures of Bad Dinosaurs season one. These two animated shows are nestled in at the sixth and seventh spots. The other animation series, Hot Wheels Let’s Race, comes in hot at the ninth rank.

There is a dose of reality TV, too, with the second season of Buying Beverly Hills. It is followed by the stand-up comedy special Dave Attell: Hot Cross Buns.
