Netflix subscribers have reveal their two most favorite original shows on the streaming service, and the results may not surprise you. According to Variety, a recent poll revealed that Orange Is the New Black is the number 1 most loved show on Netflix, and Stranger Things is number 2. The shows beat out classics such as The Office and Friends to take the top two spots. Notably, both of those classic series will be leaving the streaming service soon, but with these results Netflix execs may not be too worried about it.
It should also be noted, however, that the upcoming season of Orange Is the New Black will be its last, and there are reports that indicate the next season of Strangers Things will be the final outing for that show as well.
Variety adds that of the top 20 shows voted on, 15 were Netflix originals, thus indicating that once the two top series are gone, fans will find others to gravitate toward.
