Netflix has revealed its most-watched series for late Spring 2019. The streamer rarely makes the move of sharing its viewership info with fans. Well, it is making an exception to share what has been most popular this month.
The most-watched show since May 31 has not been the popular Netflix-saved series Lucifer. It arrived early last month on May 8. Nor is it the divisively received, but always viral, fifth season of Black Mirror. It premiered on the streamer on June 5. It’s not even the addictive Dead to Me, which premiered May 3 and just got renewed for Season 2. Find out what it is via the Netflix tweet below:
Twitter users have retweeted Netflix’s announcement more than 25,000 times with the tweet garnering over 87,000 likes. When They See Us is based on the true story of the Central Park Five. Here is Netflix’s official description of the four-part drama:
Five teens from Harlem become trapped in a nightmare when they’re falsely accused of a brutal attack in Central Park.
Ava DuVernay, who created, directed, and co-wrote the drama, responded to the news below Netflix’s post. In the tweet, she thanked those who watched the series “on behalf of all the artists” who made When They See Us.
