All Netflix Original Series Ranked by Viewership Popularity

new on netflix june 2016

Looking for a list of the most popular Netflix original shows? Great news, the entire list of originals sorted by popularity can be found below. The votes have been cast by Netflix viewers, and you can see the total number of votes a specific series has received in the column to the right.

No surprises that recent original ‘Stranger Things’ is currently atop the list, as the show has won hearts and minds of everyone craving just a little bit of that 1980s nostalgia that we didn’t know we wanted. Mainstays ‘Daredevil,’ ‘House of Cards,’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ are of course performing well.

We were actually a bit surprised to see ‘Fuller House’ and ‘Marco Polo’ as high as they are, as both were panned pretty heavily by critics. This likely just goes to show how little Netflix cares about these things, as noted by Ted Sarandos last week.

Also of note, all things considered, is how well overall the shows appear to be doing for Netflix subscribers. Netflix needs to keep its subscriber base happy in order to keep them paying monthly (as well as get them telling their friends about Netflix content to get them on board). The below list seems to reflect that overall Netflix subscribers are extremely happy with their content, as most shows receive at least a 3.5, which would likely be well above average if compared with major network television.
