Netflix reveals its most watched original series of all time

Netflix has revealed the viewing figures of some of its biggest releases over the past few months.

Netflix previously broke streaming records with its original film, Murder Mystery, which starred Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, and now, the streaming service has announced that the third, and latest, season of Stranger Things was their most successful television show of all time.

The series, which is a nostalgic homage to 80's pop culture, was streamed by 64 million households in its first four weeks of release, making it no surprise that the show was recently commissioned for a fourth season.

The findings, which were disclosed as part of the service's quarterly shareholder newsletter, also detailed that Unbelievable - which starred Kaitlyn Dever, Toni Collette and Merrit Wever, was watched by 32 million households in its first 28 days, and that the family movie, Tall Girl, garnered 41 million streams in the same time period.

Another series which saw big numbers was season three of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist). It racked up views in 44 million households, making it the most-watched show in Netflix's non-English-language territories.

It must be taken into consideration, however, that the streaming service only counts a view when a user has streamed 70 per cent of the content, and Netflix reportedly picks and chooses which titles it releases statistics for, in order to highlight its successes.

The service also revealed some of the film titles that are in the pipeline for Q4; they include, Dolemite is My Name, starring Eddie Murphy, 6 Underground, starring Michael Bay and Ryan Reynolds, Steven Soderbergh's The Laundromat, and The King, starring Timothée Chalamet, Lily-Rose Depp and Joel Edgerton.

Also coming to Netflix are the animated features, Klaus and I Lost My Body.
