The Top 10 Most Popular TV Shows on Netflix Right Now (2023)

Looking for the Top 10 TV Shows on Netflix now? Well, you're in the right place! Despite the streaming service launching the trending list earlier this year, which reveals what the Top 10 most popular TV shows are on a daily basis, it's not easy to find that list on Netflix itself without digging into it a little bit. We're here to help streamline that process.

Holdovers on this week's list are the majority of this week's Top 10, including The Watcher, which solidifies Ryan Murphy's continuing domination over the streamer, Love Is Blind Season 3, heartfelt drama From Scratch, and the long-awaited return of Manifest via Season 4 Part 1 (after the streamer resurrected it in the wake of its cancellation on NBC) as well as the premiere of Steven Moffat's Inside Man and the premiere of The Crown Season 5, which boasts a wholly new cast playing the royals this time around, including Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales and Dominic West as the now-King Charles.

Newcomers to the Netflix Top 10 this week round out the rest of our picks, from the premiere of Season 2 of Warrior Nun to an all-new season of Down to Earth with Zac Efron.

Stay tuned to see how the Top 10 changes on a weekly basis, but for now, here's the Top 10 as it currently stands today:

With the new decade in its stride, the Royal Family are presented with possibly their biggest challenge to date; as the public openly question their role in '90s Britain. As Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession, she reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television and the twilight of the British Empire. Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home. Prince Charles (Dominic West) pressures his mother to allow him to divorce Diana (Elizabeth Debicki), presenting a constitutional crisis of the monarchy. Rumours circulate as husband and wife are seen to live increasingly separate lives and, as media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of her own narrative, breaking with family protocol to publish a book that undermines public support for Charles and exposes the cracks in the House of Windsor. Tensions are set to rise further as Mohamed Al Fayed (Salim Daw) arrives on the scene. Driven by his desire for acceptance of the highest order, he harnesses his self-made wealth and power to try and earn him and his son Dodi (Khalid Abdalla) a seat at the royal table.
