New data from JustWatch contends the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” and the original movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 are the most popular programs among subscribers through Sept. 21 in the data company’s international streaming guide that tracks more than 20 million users per month across 54 countries.
Notably, “Stranger Things” is by far the most popular TV show — almost twice as popular as the second place, “The Queen’s Gambit.” Interestingly, two out of the top three series feature a female protagonist.
Among movies, the competition is tighter. The first three rankings are separated by only 0.1 percentage point. Even though I Care A Lot and The Mitchells vs. the Machines were released in 2021, they still made the Top 10.
