Netflix Top 10: ‘Bridgerton’ Returns to First Place With 28 Million Views After Season 3 Part 2 Debut

“Bridgerton” has returned to first place on the Netflix Top 10 after the debut of Season 3 Part 2. The season hit 28 million views in the final four episodes’ first four days of availability.

Viewership of earlier episodes through the entire week of June 10-16 were also accounted for in that total, but were Netflix to separate views of Parts 1 and 2, the number would likely be even higher. Views are calculated by dividing the total number of hours streamed by a title’s runtime. Therefore, even though the majority of the season’s 223.3 million viewing hours were certainly concentrated on the final four episodes, they were divided by the season’s full eight-hour length, rather than its latter few hours alone.

Season 3 has been a massive success for Netflix, having opened with 45.1 million views — “Bridgerton’s” best-ever launch. By the June 3-9 viewing window, less than one month after its May 27 debut, the season had already reached a total of 84 million views, which would have landed it the No. 10 spot on Netflix’s list of its most popular English-language series of all time if it weren’t rendered ineligible by the incoming four episodes. The streamer calculates that chart based on total views in each title’s first 91 days of streaming, and though Season 3’s viewership total has reset since the debut of Part 2, it’s still sure to make the chart soon. Accounting for all Season 3 viewership and the season’s full eight-hour length, it has now reached a total of 68.7 million views — less than 20 million below “Baby Reindeer,” the current No. 1 title.

Once again, Season 3 also drove viewership to “Bridgerton’s” previous seasons: Season 1 was the sixth-most-watched title of the week with 2.7 million views and Season 2 was No. 9 with 2.3 million views.

The other most-impressive chart showing of the week was “Under Paris.” Not only was the French film the most-watched title of the week for the second week in a row — just barely edging out “Bridgerton” with 28.7 million views — it leapt onto the list of Netflix’s most popular non-English films of all time, landing in fifth place with a cumulative 69.6 million views thus far.

“Hit Man” also had a strong second week on the chart, leading English-language films with

Back on the English-language TV chart, “Sweet Tooth” Season 3 took second place with 6 million views, followed by “Perfect Match” Season 2 with 5.1 million views. Both were in their second weeks on the chart, while “Eric” and “Geek Girl” took fourth place with 4.9 million views and fifth place with 3.8 million views, respectively, in their third weeks on the chart.

In its second week, “Hitler and the Nazis: Evil on Trial” tied “Bridgerton” with 2.7 million views, landing at No. 7, followed by the third week of “Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult” with 2.4 million views.

After the addition of Showtime’s “Your Honor” starring Bryan Cranston to Netflix, the series’ first season charted at No. 10 with 2.2 million views.
