Netflix Has Unveiled This Year’s Most Watched Shows And Movies

Another year gone by and another year closer to Netflix taking over the world.

The streaming giant has enjoyed another wildly successful 2018 and remains our go-to for any kind of binge-watch.



From the long-awaited return of the immensely popular crime doc Making a Murderer to newcomers like The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the terrifying Haunting of Hill House. It’s a pretty impressive track record.

Amongst all the Netflix original movies that were released throughout the year, the powers that be still refuse to rank on overall viewership. Instead they’ve accumulated the top three movies based on the amount of times viewers rewatch them.

And the winners are….

  1. The Kissing Booth
  2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
  3. Roxanne Roxanne

Netflix also added that staggeringly, nearly 50% of viewers re-watched #1 and #2.


Another metric that has been shared relates to our favourite stars of Netflix. But how would one measure this? By the growth of their Instagram following of course!

Here’s the 10 who enjoyed a nice bump to their Insta following.

  1. The Fab Five (Queer Eye)
  2. Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before)
  3. Joel Courtney (The Kissing Booth)
  4. Miguel Herrán (Elite / La Casa de Papel)
  5. Jaime Lorente Lopez (Elite / La Casa de Papel)
  6. Maria Pedraza (Elite / La Casa de Papel)
  7. Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Sierra Burgess is a Loser)
  8. Joey King (The Kissing Booth)
  9. Hannah Gadsby (Nanette)
  10. Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina)

And finally, there was the grand award of our favourite shows to binge on, arguably the most important of them all.

To work this out, Netflix collated the highest watch time per viewing session. You know the ones that are often rudely interrupted by the “are you still watching” message of shame.

Yes I am still watching but thanks for the overwhelming feeling of becoming utter scum.

Anyway, here’s the top 10:

  1. On My Block
  2. Making a Murderer: Part 2
  3. 13 Reasons Why: Season 2
  4. Last Chance U: INDY
  5. Bodyguard
  6. Fastest Car
  7. The Haunting of Hill House
  8. Anne with an E: Season 2
  9. Insatiable
  10. Orange Is the New Black: Season 6

Netflix is taking over – how many of these have you binged your way through?
