“Murder Mystery” Tops List of Most-Watched Netflix Originals in 2019

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in "Murder Mystery"

Netflix has always been pretty secretive about their viewership numbers, but they prepared a special New Year’s treat for their loyal subscribers – a list of the most watched shows and movies released over the course of the past twelve months.

Murder Mystery topped the list of the most-watched Netflix originals in 2019, while the third season of Stranger Things came on top of the lineup of the most popular shows on this streaming platform. New shows The Witcher, The Umbrella Academy and Dead to Me also had impressive viewership numbers.

In addition to Murder Mystery, the list of the most-watched movies in the US also included 6 Underground and The Irishman. Some of the movies that made the cut, including The Incredibles 2 and Wreck-It Ralph 2, aren’t Netflix originals, and they’ll leave this platform in the following months.

Check out the full list of the most popular programs on US Netflix in 2019.
