Netflix’s top 10 list of 2021 is a mix bag of high-quality TV shows and not-so-great movies.
The streaming service continued to prove itself as a force to be reckoned with this year thanks to several new releases making their way onto Netflix’s most-watched of all-time rankings.
In September, Squid Game overtook 2020 series Bridgerton to become the streamer’s most-watched title ever.
Despite the fact that Netflix is yet to release a top 10 list for 2021, The Independent has collated previously announced figures to collate a list revealing the most-watched shows and movies of the year so far.
It is worth noting that Netflix considers a viewer to be someone who watches two minutes of a title, an amount of time they say is “long enough to indicate the choice was intentional”.
1. Squid Game (142m)
2. Lupin part one (76m)
3. Money Heist season five (69m)
4. Maid (67m)
5. Sex/Life (67m)
6. Sweet Tooth (60m)
7. Fate: The Winx Saga (57m)
8. Sex Education season three (55m)
9. Shadow and Bone (55m)
10. Lupin part two (54m)
1. Red Notice (129m)
2. Army of the Dead (75m)
3. Fatherhood (74m)
4. The Guilty (69m)
5. Sweet Girl (68m)

7. He’s All That (55m)
8. Blood Red Sky (53m)
