With 2018 now coming to an end, Netflix have unveiled their top 2018 lists, packed with all the original content we enjoyed from the streaming platform over the last year.
From the movies that the public fell in love with, to the stars of Netflix shows that were most popular with audiences, they’ve compiled three lists of everything those subscribed to the service loved most.
Under their ‘Movies We Fell In Love With’ category, teen rom-com The Kissing Booth topped the poll of movies rewatched most, narrowly beating out the much-talked about To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to the top spot. In third place was Roxanne Roxanne, the true story of Roxanne Shanté, a teenage New York MC with star power.
These three movies received the highest rewatch rate of Netflix’s original offerings last year.
In ‘The Stars We Fell In Love With’, the service has calculated which of their stars received the largest percentage growth in Instagram following since January.
In no surprise, the much loved and wholesome Fab Five from Queer Eye pipped the top spot, just ahead of the leading lady from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Lana Condor.
Joel Courtney, the main love interest in The Kissing Booth, and three members of the Elite cast also made it into the top ten.
There was also a number of shows we ‘Fell In Binge’ with this year, as they call it, including High School drama On My Block, the second part of Making A Murderer, and season two of the much-discussed 13 Reasons Why.
Other titles that appear on the much-binged list include Bodyguard, Insatiable and the most recent series of prison drama Orange Is The New Black, as well as the horror series The Haunting of Hill House.
This year saw some of Netflix’s most discussed content yet. it’s been an overall successful year for the platform. They’ve already began to announce new content that will be coming to the platform in 2019, including their first original African series. As well as that, they’ve also secured the heavily anticipated documentary ‘Fyre’ on the controversial festival failure in 2017.
There will also be a new eight episode show from the producers of Stranger Things and the director of sleeper hit ‘The End of the F***** World’ in 2019, based off a graphic novel by Charles Forsman.
Of course, there will also be the return of a number of ever-loved series from the streaming giant, including cult hit Stranger Things, the feel-good Queer Eye, royal drama The Crown, heartwarming comedy Grace and Frankie and the second half of the final season of the Tina Fey comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
