Netflix Reveals The Top 20 Most Binge-Raced Shows

Netflix and no chill

Much like a packet of Tim Tams or bottle of wine, sometimes you can’t help but consume an entire Netflix series in one go. 

According to Netflix, more than 8.4 million viewers have powered through their favourite television series in a day. And with the binge-watching phenomenon comes a new term: binge-racing. Binge-racers are known to watch an entire season within 24 hours of its release.

In Australia, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life turned out to be the most binged raced—the marie claire office probably contributed to a few of those views. And with just four episodes in the new season, it’s a fairly manageable to devour in a day.

Also topping the list were Marvel’s The Defenders, Drew Barrymore’s morbid but hilarious Santa Clarita Diet and The Seven Deadly Sins. Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things earnt spots on the list too (obviously). 

Another fascinating gem of information: the Australian Capital Territory topped the list of binge-racers per captita within Australia, followed by Queensland and Tasmania.

As Netflix revealed, one dedicated viewer managed to binge-watch 13 shows within 24 hours (seriously, are they writing about me?).

Here’s the full list of the 20 most binge-raced shows: 

  1. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
  2. Marvel’s The Defenders
  3. Santa Clarita Diet
  4. The Seven Deadly Sins
  5. The Ranch
  6. Fuller House
  7. Atypical
  8. White Gold
  9. Friends from College
  10. F is for Family
  11. Stranger Things
  12. Grace and Frankie
  13. Orange Is the New Black
  14. GLOW
  15. Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later
  16. Frontier
  17. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
  18. You Me Her
  19. Chewing Gum
  20. Anne with an E

The take-home from this? You’re not the only one with an insatiable appetite for binge-worthy television, so don’t feel guilty when another episode auto-plays (even if it’s 2am).
