Using the top 10 data (as provided by FlixPatrol) you will see the biggest hits from June 2021, regardless of whether they are TV series or films from 2021.

You will find that Netflix Originals dominates most of the lists. On the global list, this is mainly due to availability (i.e. a licensed title might come to Netflix UK but not anywhere else and therefore not be able to make it into the top 10 in other regions).

For a daily rundown of Netflix’s popularity, head over to our top 10 list.

One recurring theme you’ll see on these lists is how well kids’ shows and movies perform on Netflix. We can be heroes demonstrates this perfectly with many around the world repeating the film every day of the week. Disney + demonstrates this theory also with the same titles in the top 10 every week.

Love and monsters did well on Netflix worldwide, even though it wasn’t on Netflix US. The Mitchells vs. The Machines had one of the best debuts in the first month in the top 10 and shot straight to number 2 in the rankings in May 2021.

In particular, there are some titles on the global list that are not available in the US but are distributed in most regions outside of it. New Amsterdam, the NBC series was added to most of Netflix’s regions in January this year and has remained consistently in the top 10.

Snow piercer is another good example of a show distributed by Netflix outside of the United States.

Bridgerton remains the runaway winner, however, and Netflix’s first-month viewership of 82 million households confirms that too.
