The lists show noticeable trends in the data, such as the addition of foreign-language and anime series as Netflix expands into foreign markets, as well as the addition of Spy Kids: Mission Critical, as Netflix subscribers express their interest in reboots and nostalgia.

Our TV Time community is made up of millions of TV fans across the world. They tend to gravitate to U.S.-produced, English-language programming,” saidChristy Ezzell, TV Time’s Senior Editorial Director.

“But with shows like the German-language series DARK, Netflix has proved the world is embracing engaging content in all languages. DARK has been in the top 20 of the most tracked shows in our app every week since its debut in December 2017 and Netflix looks like it’s capitalizing on that momentum and investing in more content like the Korean-language series Kingdom.”
