- Netflix has been releasing lots of original content this year.
- “13 Reasons Why” was the most watched Netflix show of 2018.
- Other shows include “Insatiable”, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Elite.”
As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to take stock of not only what TV shows critics took a shine to, but also which ones drew the most viewers. While some of the most-streamed shows on Netflix this year weren’t exactly surprising — promising new shows “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Elite” made the top 20 — some of the picks on the list don’t match up with critics’ reviews.
“Insatiable,” for example, cleared the top 10 most-streamed shows of the year despite backlash, and “13 Reasons Why” scored the number one slot despite (or perhaps because of) its controversial subject matter.
According to TV Time, these are the top 20 most-viewed Netflix shows of 2018.
