The most popular shows on Netflix right now besides “New Amsterdam”
“New Amsterdam” is the most popular show on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
The third and fourth seasons of the NBC medical drama hit Netflix on February 1, just two weeks after the fifth and final season wrapped on the broadcast network. Based on the book “Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital” by Eric Manheimer, “New Amsterdam” stars Ryan Eggold as a new medical director working to reform a neglected public hospital.
The second most popular show at the moment is the comedy-drama “Ginny & Georgia,” which has held the No. 1 spot on the charts since its Season 2 premiere on Jan. 5. The series follows a mother and daughter, played by Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry, as they face challenges in a new town and grow together.
Another dramedy is also trending on Netflix right now. “Freeridge” is a new spin-off of the teen show “On My Block.” The series premiered on February 2 and stars Keyla Monterroso Mejia, who viewers may recognize from her hilarious role as Maria Sofia in “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
And fans of “The Great British Bake-Off,” aka “The Great British Baking Show,” were thrilled on February 1, with the addition of “The Great British Bake Show: The Professionals.” One of many spinoffs from the popular cooking competition series, the show entered the charts almost immediately after joining Netflix.
