After gathering a list of the top Netflix shows, we analyzed a year’s worth of global search volume to find the top shows in every country (where data was available). Have you seen your country’s favorite show? Or is your favorite show capturing the attention of other countries?

  • Rounding out the top three, Riverdale released its fifth season in January 2021. The not-so-innocent teen drama was a favorite in seven countries including Austria, Costa Rica, Moldova, and Panama.
  • In Canada and the United States, the top show was Schitt’s Creek, which released its award-winning final season in 2020.
  • Eleven countries in the world revved up with the “romance-heavy” teen shows Riverdale and Sex Education.
