As always, this list of lists is far from perfect. Without official numbers from Netflix, we’re using multiple data-points to garner what’s currently hot on Netflix.

Netflix UK Top 10 List for June 26th

Netflix UK didn’t publish their typical list on Wednesday instead opting to highlight how many Netflix accounts have watched a particular Netflix Original.

Ava DuVernay announced that 23 million Netflix accounts around the world had tuned in to watch the stunning limited series.

Netflix UK added, “When They See Us has been in the top two most-watched series on Netflix in the UK since it launched on 31 May – beaten only by Black Mirror.”

The account did talk about its top 10s but failed to actually release it for this week.
