Fumbling upon thousands of shows on Netflix can be both exhilarating and massive. From comedies and dramas to reality shows and documentaries, sufficient content of all types. There’s even a list of top 10 to help you decide what to watch next among the most favoured Netflix shows.

Every week, Netflix puts out a list of the 10 most-watched TV shows over a recent seven-day period. Below we’ve listed the top 10 shows on Netflix for this week, along with a synopsis of every show.

1. Outer Banks:

After losing possession of the gold and escaping the Outer Banks, Season 3 finds the Pogues washed ashore on a desert island, which for a moment feels like a perfect home. Officially deemed “poguelandia,” the visitors of the island spend their days fishing, swimming, and partying in the nonchalant lifestyle of their temporary dwelling. But things start going south for John B, Sarah, Kiara, Pope, JJ, and Cleo when a race for treasure takes its course, with everybody’s lives on the line.

Broke, far from home and harbouring suspicion on everybody possible, Ward and Rafe are hungry for revenge, and to add to misery there’s a Caribbean Don who will stop at nothing, to get his hands on the treasure. Was the treasure ever in their reach? Or was it all just a part of a plan to stop them forever? Either way, it’s the Pogues against the world – and there’s only one way out, it’s together.

2. You:

On almost every other series, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) would be an antagonist. But on You, this compulsive stalker and murderer is a fan loved anti-hero. Joe just can’t control or rather should I say help himself. Whenever a pretty young woman falls in his vision, he manoeuvres himself into their lives and often goes on a death row in the way of his happiness.
Parts 1 and 2 of the fourth season of You just premiered, and it revolves around Joe in a weird position of trying to escape his past life of bedlam behind and start afresh in London. But he is such a supreme artist of killing that art finds its way to Joe, his ability to kill and hide bodies just can’t let him go off the hook even while he’s trying to go off the radar.
