Looking for the Top 10 TV Shows on Netflix now? Well, you’re in the right place! Despite the streaming service launching the trending list earlier this year, which reveals what the Top 10 most popular TV shows are on a daily basis, it’s not super easy to find that list on Netflix itself without digging into it a little bit. We’re here to help streamline that process.
This week, most of the shifting happened in the second half of the top 10 list. Korean horror-thriller-sci-fi series Squid Game continues to sit right behind the newest third season of returning thriller series You. Margaret Qualley-starring dramedy Maid was knocked out of the top three by the limited series Colin in Black and White, while the CW teen dramas that held a place last week were shuffled out of the rankings altogether as Season 2 of Locke and Key shifted down a few spots.
Newcomers to this week’s list include the kid-friendly Nickelodeon superhero show The Thundermans, as well as the not-so-kid-friendly true-crime docuseries Catching Killers. Plus, Season 2 of the genre mystery series Locke and Key debuted strong, and maybe one day we’ll look back on this time fondly with kid-favorite Cocomelon and perhaps even make something beautiful out of it.
Stay tuned to see how the Top 10 changes on a weekly basis, but for now, here’s the Top 10 as it currently stands today:
- 10. Maya and the Three
- 9. The Thundermans
- 8. Riverdale
- 7. Locke and Key
- 6. Catching Killers
- 5. Cocomelon
- 4. Maid
- 3. Colin in Black and White
- 2. Squid Game
- 1. You

Colin in Black & White stars Jaden Michael as Young Colin before reaching the highest levels of American football as an NFL quarterback and becoming a cultural icon and activist; Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker as his well-meaning parents Rick and Teresa; and Colin Kaepernick himself, who appears as the present-day narrator of his own story, guiding viewers through a robust and colorfully presented array of historical and contemporary contextual moments. You don’t know Kaepernick until you know Colin.

Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing. But the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who’s wise to your tricks? Well, that’ll prove a much more complicated escape.
