Streaming giant Netflix has unveiled the list of its most watched TV shows from the duration of October 2018 to September 2019. Netflix has been notoriously secretive about the viewership numbers of its content and has often not been particularly forthcoming as to which of its TV shows and movies get the most views.
Duffer Brothers’ horror-science fiction show Stranger Things was the most watched TV show on the platform. Among the movies, Bird Box, a post-apocalyptic horror film starring Sandra Bullock, topped the list.
