Revealed: The top 20 Netflix shows you can’t wait to binge on

Whether its releasing entire box set collections on demand or pushing out full seasons of original content all at once, we have Netflix to thank for the modern notion of ‘binge viewing’.

Today the company announced binge viewing series is 20-times more popular than it was a in 2013 and that a whopping 8.4 million viewers have consumed a season within 24 hours of it premiering on the platform.

The streaming giant also revealed the top 20 series subscribers are blazing through within the first full day of availability.

Topping the speed-viewing charts are Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life and Fuller House.

Given both shows were reprised by Netflix to the delight of rabid fanbases, the fact subscribers scoffed down episodes like Eric Cartman at an all-you-can-eat buffet at Casa Bonita is hardly surprising.

The Defenders is up next, which is the only Marvel adaptation to break the top twenty.

The Seven Deadly Sins and The Ranch round out the top five, while the new Netflix-produced series of the Canadian comedy Trailer Park Boys (RIP Mr. Lahey) is sixth.

Surprisingly Netflix’s biggest hitters are much farther down the list.

The likes of Orange Is The New Black (9), Stranger Things (10), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (15), House of Cards (16) and Master of None (20) are much lower than we’d expect given the anticipation that accompanies each series.

The full top 20 is as follows:

1. Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

2. Fuller House

3. Marvel’s The Defenders

4. The Seven Deadly Sins

5. The Ranch

6. Santa Clarita Diet

7. Trailer Park Boys

8. F Is For Family

9. Orange Is The New Black

10. Stranger Things

11. Friends From College

12. Atypical

13. Grace And Frankie

14. Wet Hot American Summer

15. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

16. House Of Cards

17. Love

18. GLOW

19. Chewing Gum

20. Master Of None

Netflix’s VP of Original Series Brian Wright says: “There’s a unique satisfaction that comes from being the first to finish a story — whether it’s the final page of a book or the last climactic moments of your favourite TV show. Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there’s nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing.”
