What movies and shows were the most-watched throughout April 2022? We’ll find out in this new rundown we’re doing that looks at the global top 10 TV and movie charts on Netflix over the past 30 days. 

Netflix’s top 10s, in case you didn’t know, allow you to track what’s trending in your country on any particular day. In this list, every day a show or movie features in their respective top 10 earns points which allows us to compile a list of which titles did the best on a global scale.

A few caveats to this data. The top 10s, particularly on the TV side, favors shows with longer runtimes as it’s based on hourly data. Also, if a title releases later in the month, it has less chance to feature in the top 10s so that’s worth bearing in mind. Also, Netflix Originals will tend to do the best on these lists given their global availability. Sonic the Hedgehog, for example, was only available on Netflix in April in around 23 countries.

We’re also going to be keeping a track of these top 10 scores as the year goes on. If you want to see the most popular movies of 2022 on Netflix so far, you can check out our post for that here.
