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

This week’s Netflix top ten lineup boasts an array of offerings that have been dominating the charts for a while and a few fresh entries.

Topping the charts at number one, once again, is One Piece. This enduring epic has sailed its way into the hearts of millions, garnering a staggering 145.7million hours viewed last week. As we delve into the world of Monkey D. Luffy and his crew of misfit pirates, fans are treated to a tale of adventure, friendship, and the pursuit of the ultimate treasure, the One Piece.

Following closely at number two is Virgin River season five. This sleeper hit drama has amassed 68.5m hours viewed in its debut week. Set against the backdrop of a picturesque small town, the series continues to explore the intricacies of love, loss, and new beginnings. 

In third place is the limited series Who is Erin Carter? This mystery action drama delves into the life of Erin Carter, a British teacher in Spain, who “finds herself caught up in a supermarket robbery. When one of the robbers claims to recognise her, her life threatens to unravel.”

Next, we have the gritty crime drama Top Boy, with its fifth and final season on Netflix. And that’s not all. From the enlightening exploration of longevity in Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones to the wit and humour of Shane Gillis in Beautiful Dogs and the pulse-pounding action of Predators season one, the top ten chart has a lot going for it.

The concluding chapter of the whimsical fantasy of Disenchantment is at the eighth spot, followed by the limited series on the origins of the opioid crisis, Painkiller. Lastly, there’s the espionage series Spy Ops, where “Intelligence operatives from MI6 to the CIA share insider stories of spy craft, Cold War campaigns, and coups carried out by covert agents.”
