The top 20 most ‘binged’ watch Netflix shows in the UK have been revealed.

The TV and movie streaming platform has unveiled the ranked run-down of the shows completed in full series by most viewers within their first 24 hours. While one might expect the likes of ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Black Mirror’ and ‘House Of Cards’ to rank highly due to their acclaim and popularity, the ‘binge list’ is in fact topped by ‘Marvel’s The Defenders’, ‘Gilmore Girls’ and ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ in the UK.

“Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there’s nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing,” said Netflix President Brian Wright.

‘Stranger Things’ bosses have already decided how and when the show will end

While much hype is gathering around the imminent release of ‘Stranger Things’ season 2, this week saw Netflix confirm that they’ll be releasing 80 of their own original films across the service in 2018.

It is reported that they plan to spend $8 billion on original content over the next year. Netflix released eight original films in the last quarter (ending September 30) and gained 5.3 million new customers during that time, as revealed by the company’s content chief Ted Sarandos in a video conference this week.
