Using the top 10 data (as provided by FlixPatrol) you’ll see the biggest hits whether that be TV series or movies of 2021 on Netflix as of June 2021. We’ll be covering the top 10 lists globally (usually every countries data) while also covering the United States and the United Kingdom.

You’ll notice Netflix Originals dominate most lists. On the global list, this is mostly because of availability (ie. a licensed title could come to Netflix UK but nowhere else and therefore be unable to enter the top 10s in other regions).

If you want to see a daily rundown of what’s popular on Netflix, head over to our top 10 list.

One recurring theme you’re going to see on these lists is how well kids shows and movies do on Netflix. We Can Be Heroes demonstrates this perfectly with many around the world slapping on the movie on repeat every day of the week. Disney+ demonstrates this theory too with the same titles in the top 10 every week.

Love and Monsters has performed well on Netflix globally despite not being on Netflix US. The Mitchells vs. The Machines had one of the best first-month debuts on the top 10s and shot straight up to number 2 on the rankings in May 2021.

Notably, there are a few titles in the global list that aren’t available in the US but are distributed in most regions outside. New Amsterdam, the NBC series was added to most regions of Netflix in January this year and has remained consistently in the top 10s.

Snowpiercer is another good example of a show distributed by Netflix outside the US.

Bridgerton remains the runaway winner though and Netflix’s own released viewership number of 82 million households watching in the first month also backs this up.

Top 10 Movies on Netflix UK So Far in 2021

We Can Be Heroes also dominated the top 10 movie list in the UK too but there are a few standout exceptions for the UK.

Seaspiracy is a documentary that lit up the tabloids and dominated the news in the UK and therefore rose to the number 2 spot but has since sunk down to number 4. Elsewhere, The Dig did well in the UK which makes sense given it’s set in Suffolk.

  1. We Can Be Heroes
  2. The Secret Life of Pets 2
  3. The Mitchells vs. The Machines
  4. Seaspiracy
  5. Love and Monsters
