Netflix Unveils Its Most Popular Releases of 2019

What was the most popular thing on Netflix this year? No, it wasn't Stranger Things or The Witcher, it was Murder Mystery starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston, which was watched by over 30mm accounts during its first three days of availability alone.

It's important to note, however, that Netflix counts a "watch" as a subscriber who has watched at least two minutes of a program, so keep that in mind when judging that astronomical number.

The most popular series of the year, however, was indeed the third season of Stranger Things. The second season of You, which was released just days ago, surprises as the fifth most popular show, making the Lifetime-to-Netflix phenomenon a darkhorse contender for most valuable property.
