the umbrella academy work it most popular this week

Welcome to your weekly recap of the most popular titles on Netflix around the world for the past 7 days! We’ll be taking a look at the global top 10 movies and TV series as well as regional-specific lists such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and any other region that we find interesting.

This data comes to you thanks to our ongoing partnership with FlixPatrol.com.

Note: data is between August 9th to August 16th, 2020. The number to the right of each title is the number of points accrued for the week. 10 points for a first position and 1 point for a 10th position. This means titles added later in the week tend to have less chance to rank well. 


Global Top 10 Movies & TV Series This Week

As always with global data, titles that are the most widely available (titles that are licensed globally or Netflix Originals) tend to do better.

  • In India, the Netflix Original movie Raat Akeli Hai managed to beat out Work It for the week.

That’s it for this week, we’ll be back next Sunday for more of the top 10s for the past week.
