You can probably imagine that Stranger Things is no longer number one and that there is a Mexican series on the list.
Netflix is no longer the only streaming option that exists, but they were the first so they have a lot of experience creating addictive series that capture the world’s attention and they have a few that always make it to the favorites lists. between the different platforms that are already available.
Now that Disney, Apple and HBO have declared war on it (taking their content and developing their own original movies), Netflix , which recently revealed the list of the most popular foreign series , is having to get creative to find new stories that ensure that their numbers are not going to suffer once all the new ones are released and have the world divided, trying to decide which platforms are really worth it.
But they are not suffering so much either, at the time of their premiere, series like Stranger Things and Lupine have been the salvation of Netflix , and they have become what everyone sees and talks about for weeks (or months, especially when the new seasons are announce).
At first, Netflix was very reserved when it came to sharing their numbers, they did not talk about the most watched series and movies or the number of people who saw them, but, for a few months they have been starting to share that data, even dividing by countries, so that all its users can know which series are not to be missed and how many people saw the same thing.
Netflix usually reveals the numbers of its most popular series, starting with The Witcher and Stranger Things and ending with Cobra Kai and Umbrella Academy , the most successful series not only within the platform. For this, they took into account the list of series that had been seen by at least 70%, which makes Bridgerton, The Witcher and Lupine the clear winners (although also accounts that were seen for at least 2 minutes ).
This is the Top 16 most watched series on Netflix in the world (and not just for two minutes).
