Chris Hemsworth-starrer Extraction, which released on Netflix during the nationwide lockdown last year, has become the most-viewed movie on the platform. The American streaming giant recently released data on its most-watched movies and shows.

While Extraction, which also starred Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, used his obvious Indian connection to top the charts, Bridgerton’s first season won the shows honor.

A staggering 82 million subscribers logged into Netflix for Bridgerton within 28 days of the show’s premiere. Henry Cavill’s fantasy series The Witcher came in second, while France’s Lupine topped the top three with 76 million subscribers in its prize pool.

According to Netflix data, 99 million subscribers watched Extraction within 28 days of its release. Bird Box, an apocalyptic thriller, finished second in the list of most viewed movies, followed by the movie Spenser Confidential in third place.

Netflix counts subscribers who watch the first two minutes of content as a “view”. To balance things out, the streaming giant also revealed the total viewing hours of its 10 best original series and movies.

Netflix subscribers spent 282 million hours watching Bird Box in the first 28 days, while Extraction took second place with 231 million hours.

Bridgerton, with 625 million hours watched in the first four weeks, also topped this list. Viewers spent an average of 7 hours and 37 minutes watching the show, which lasted 8 hours 10 minutes in its first season.

Netflix chief executive Ted Sarandos told Variety that talent needs to be rewarded, and he believes the company is doing just that.

Speaking of Bridgerton, Sarandos said that had they not made the deal with producer Shonda Rhimes, the series would have aired elsewhere. He added that talent should be respected and compensated competitively.

Netflix has already given the green light to all of its reputable shows, it announced at its recent global fan event, Tudum. Stranger Things, The Witcher, Bridgerton, The Old Guard, Army of the Dead, You, and Extraction will all have sequels.
