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

In a somewhat strange twist of events, the top five spots on the Netflix top ten series chart globally are being dominated by the same shows two weeks in a row. 

At the top of the list sits The Gentlemen season one, a gripping tale of drugs, crime, and intrigue directed by Guy Ritchie. The Theo James headliner has been dominating the top ten charts since its debut on the platform. For those craving a nostalgic trip down memory lane, the live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender season one continues to reign supreme. 

The limited docuseries The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping takes the third spot again, followed by the animated Hot Wheels Let’s Race and the sixth season of Love Is Blind, the reality TV show offering guilty pleasure and a dose of drama.

The documentary Turning Point: The Bomb and the Cold War continues the curiosity about the atomic bomb that has been brought back into pop culture with Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-winning Oppenheimer. The series explores the events leading up to the Cold War and the nuclear arms race.

The limited series One Day is still going strong. It has landed in the seventh spot in its sixth week. The series, starring Ambika Mod and Leo Woodall, is based on David Nicholls’ bestseller novel, which was first adapted for the screen by Lone Scherfig. The 2011 film saw Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess portraying the roles of Emma and Dexter.

For those in need of a good laugh, Steve Treviño’s Simple Man delivers a dose of comedy with its stand-up routines. And rounding out the top ten is Chris Sheridan’s sci-fi dramedy, Resident Alien, starring Alan Tudyk.
