The Witcher Has Been Named As Netflix's Most Popular Series Of 2019
Netflix has dubbed The Witcher the UK's most popular series release of 2019.
The streaming giant has compiled multiple lists depending on your country. They range from top 10 movies to top 10 stand up releases of the year.
When it comes to the 'Top 10 Most Popular Series Releases Of 2019' for the UK, Netflix has listed The Witcher at the top spot followed by After Life, Stranger Things and Sex Education.
Coming in at number five is The Umbrella Academy then You, Unbelievable, Top Boy, Black Mirror and finally Dirty John.
Witcher being Netflix highest rated series to me is proof the should switch to weekly. Pains me to say it because I love binging shows but the fact that they blow their loads then everyone moves on a week later has no longevity for the series. This could've been a long term W.

Not only is The Witcher the highest rated series on Netflix right now, the author of the books is the most popular on Amazon.
Not just in fantasy genre, but among ALL authors.
A great time to be a Witcher fan.#TheWitcher pic.twitter.com/mJ8T7ccSkz

The most popular released of the year across the board were: The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, 6 Underground, Murder Mystery, The Witcher, The Irishman, After Life, Stranger Things, Our Planet, Sex Education and finally Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
If you're a fan of stand up you'll be pleased/disappointed to know that Jack Whitehall: Christmas with My Father was first with Kevin Hart: Irresponsible, Jimmy Carr: The Best of Ultimate Gold Greatest Hits and Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones following.
Some people weren't convinced with the lists with one writing: "The Witcher and You have been out for maybe five minutes does that mean all of 2019 viewing happens in December? Or does 'prediction' cast forward."
Another added: "Also interesting how the McCann documentary came up number one despite *really* bad reviews."
