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

From gaudy reality shows to period dramas, the Netflix global top ten list is being dominated by some familiar faces like Queen Charlotte and Bridgerton (the second season is on a 14-week streak!) this week. There is the limited series Maid, released two years ago, back in the list after clips went viral on TikTok recently. Then there are the new releases.

Claiming the top spot is FUBAR, season one. This series has spent an impressive one week in the top ten list and has accumulated a staggering 88,940,000 hours viewed. In the second place, we have XO, Kitty, season one, which has garnered eyeballs despite reviews panning the over-the-top K-drama-inspired drama. With 63,780,000 hours viewed, the To All The Boys spin-off series has kept viewers hooked.

Coming in at number three is Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. This spin-off from the beloved Bridgerton franchise has spent four weeks in the top ten, captivating viewers with its lavish settings and intriguing storyline. It has garnered an impressive 42,900,000 hours viewed.

Selling Sunset season six takes the fourth spot, captivating audiences with its tacky yet glamorous real estate drama. Spending two weeks in the top ten, this reality series has accumulated 33,350,000 hours viewed.

Rounding out the top five is S.W.A.T. season one. This action-packed series has spent one week in the top ten and has accumulated 20,230,000 hours viewed. This police procedural, along with The Night Agent (which has been on the list for 10 weeks in a row now, just like Firefly Lane season two), are good choices for those who love adrenaline-fueled entertainment.

These are just a few of the top ten series currently captivating Netflix viewers. With a mix of genres and captivating storylines, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. So start bingeing!
