    The Results Are In: These Are The Most Popular TV Shows And Movies Australians Watched On Netflix

    Yes, Tiger King came out THIS year.

    Like most people, I definitely turned to TV shows and movies to keep my mind occupied from the general dumpster fire that 2020 turned out to be this year.

    They gave me comfort, they made me laugh and they provided escapism into a completely different world — even if was only for an hour or so.

    So, in light of that, Netflix have decided to look back and see what the most popular TV shows and movies were for Australians this year.

    FOR ACTION: Extraction and Cobra Kai took out the top spot.

    FOR COMEDY: Holidate and Emily In Paris came in first place.

    FOR DOCUMENTARIES: American Murder: The Family Next Door and Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem And Madness clocked in the most views.

    FOR DRAMA: Enola Holmes and The Queen's Gambit reigned supreme.

    FOR HORROR: It Chapter Two and The Haunting Of Bly Manor beat the rest of the competition.

    FOR ROMANCE: The Kissing Booth 2 and Dash & Lily were loved by Aussies the most.

    FOR THRILLERS: Spenser Confidential and The Sinner: Jamie had us all glued to our screens.

    FOR REALITY: Too Hot To Handle was the one that Australians couldn't get enough of.

    And lastly, FOR KIDS: Pokémon Detective Pikachu and Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Season 1 took out the top gong.

    According to Netflix, in general, Australians were most invested in content that had "female-led stories, iconic characters and worlds and a heavy dose of romance."

    Plus, our love for anime and K-drama grew a lot stronger this year, which makes me very happy because there's a lot of good content to come out of both of those genres.

    Well, that's the year wrapped up in terms of what we watched the most. Here's to many, many hours of Netflix in 2021.
