Must Watch Series

The most-watched series in Netflix history

Netflix is one of the biggest multimedia companies across the globe responsible for dutifully spreading entertainment. Every few months there are certain projects that gain more attention than others, and Netflix’s formula for getting content right revolves around them.

Series like Stranger Things and Love Death + Robots are great examples of a similar nature, providing content for an extremely similar audience, yet one is perhaps the most beloved series the platform has ever made, and the other is a pure cult-classic. This article highlights the most-watched series across the platform in the history of Netflix. 

Ever since the beginning of Netflix’s blockbuster era, the company has been disrupting the market with its innovative expansion pushing the borders of modern entertainment accessibility. Whether it’s creating a platform for everyone to have easier access to media objects or interactive entertainment, awarding viewers more agency than they ever had. Like Bandersnatch or Kaleidoscope

Although Netflix lost a lot of subscribers in recent history, that has not stopped them from venturing into maximising realms of creative production and viewership possibility. To study their viewer’s preferences, the company analyses and rates their most-watch series across different categories to better understand consumer needs.

There are a few surprises on the list below. Though one might expect to see Stranger Things and Wednesday dominate the English language list, it is a little surprising to see the quaint Ginny and Georgia breaking into the top ten. But it’s still Squid Game that ultimately reigns supreme as the most watched series in Netflix history.
