Welcome to your weekly look at what’s currently hot and popular on Netflix right now. We’ve got data from multiple sources which should help you find your next Netflix watch. Let us know in the comments how many of the titles listed you’ve seen. 

As always, this article isn’t completely scientifically accurate with multiple footnotes needed for each source as to why they’re not 100% accurate. However, it does give us a vague sense of what’s trending around the world on Netflix.


What’s Hot on Netflix UK This Week

One of the best sources we have for seeing what’s popular on Netflix is from Netflix itself. In the United Kingdom, they release weekly top 10 lists of what’s hot.

Last week, Netflix UK didn’t release its usual top 10 list and this week, they’ve waited until early Friday morning to release. The biggest surprise is how well Sextuplets, the new movie featuring Marlon Wayans in six different roles did catapult itself to the top of the list. Mindhunter made a modest entry at number three but Wu Assassins sits at the second spot a couple of weeks after debuting.
