- One of the most-watched shows on Netflix this week is Dead To Me, a show about two grieving women who become friends which debuted its second season on the streamer earlier this month.
- Rounding out the list of what else is hot at the moment are familiar favorites that range from Money Heist to Ozark, Breaking Bad, and Stranger Things.
- This week’s list of the hottest TV shows on Netflix comes, as always, from the team at Reelgood.
On paper, you could argue that the sophomore season of Dead to Me which debuted on Netflix earlier this month doesn’t sound too much like the kind of hit series you’d expect a frustrated and traumatized public that’s going stir-crazy at home would want to binge in their free time during a months-long global pandemic. You’d be wrong, though, because not only is Dead to Me Season 2 — which stars Linda Cardellini and Christina Applegate — one of the most-watched shows on Netflix right now according to the weekly rankings we track. Its popularity also reflects two important truths about Netflix itself.
One of which is that, in case you needed any reminder, the streamer is masterful in its ability to create durable new TV franchises from scratch, whether it’s a docu-series like Tiger King , a raunchy reality show like Too Hot to Handle , or buzzy dramas that have global appeal, like Money Heist . The second thing is that it continues to be true that, especially during the time of the coronavirus, people are desperate for great storytelling from the entertainment mediums they support with their subscription dollars. Whether those stories offer up ridiculous central characters like a gun-toting exotic animal showman embroiled in a murder-for-hire plot, or two women who bond during therapy while each is grieving.
