The most popular movies and TV shows for 2019 are largely what you would expect – with titles such as Stranger Things 3 and The Irishman making it into the top slots. But one show which has become a big hit very quickly is The Witcher, now available to stream on Netflix.

Here is the full list:

  1. Murder Mystery
  2. Stranger Things 3
  3. 6 Underground
  4. The Incredibles 2
  5. The Irishman
  6. The Witcher
  7. The Triple Frontier
  8. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
  9. The Umbrella Academy
  10. The Highwaymen

It would appear that Netflix viewers prefer to watch originals, which is a good sign for their upcoming strategy to invest more heavily in this area. It will also help to secure confidence in subscribers and investors in the months to come.

Viewerships statistics weren’t released with this information, which means it isn’t too clear what popularity is measured by for these titles. What we do know is that Netflix makes the rankings based on the number of accounts that streamed a title for two minutes or more during the first 28 days of its release.

Some of the most popular titles on Netflix are still Friends and The Office, but these aren’t on the list as they weren’t released in 2019. The most impressive on the list is The Witcher, which has secured sixth place despite only recently being added to Netflix.
