The results are in for the top streamed shows of 2021 in America, and Netflix takes home the big win.
According to analytics firm Nielsen, a whopping 12 of the top 15 most popular series came from Netflix, with the remaining three made up by Hulu, Disney+, and Apple TV+. Other large services such as Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, and Peacock didn't even make it on the list. Interestingly enough, despite the Korean thriller Squid Game going absolutely viral, it only came in at second place, defeated by none other than Lucifer, which wrapped up with its sixth and final season back in September last year.
The full list is:
Squid Game (Netflix)
Great British Baking Show (Netfix)
Virgin River (Netflix)
Cobra Kai (Netflix)
The Crown (Netflix)
The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu)
Outer Banks (Netflix)
Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)
The Witcher (Netflix)
All shows are now available on their respective platforms if you're looking for something to binge on.
In other entertainment news, Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 have now been delayed until 2023 and 2024.
