It comes as no surprise that Netflix favorite, Stranger Things, rose to the top this past week. The third installment offers yet another action-packed adventure filled with ‘80s nostalgia and pop culture references; bringing the series to No. 1 with a rise ratio of 97.6%. The nostalgia continued thanks in part to Netflix streaming as ‘90s sitcom classic, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (No. 4), entered the top 10 and musical comedy, Glee (No. 5), held placement for a second week. Additionally, The CW’s retired crime series, Veronica Mars (No. 7), had a resurgence due to Hulu’s upcoming revival, which arrives at month’s end.
Meanwhile, Netflix carried on its summer domination with family drama, Free Rein, earning a No. 3 position while animated series, 7Seeds (No. 8), and new comedy, Family Business (No. 10), ascend following their recent releases.
