“The Diplomat” is currently the most popular show on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
Starring Keri Russell, this new political thriller explores the personal and intergovernmental challenges a career diplomat faces in his new role as US ambassador to the UK. All eight episodes of The Diplomat aired on April 20 to generally positive reviews.
The second most popular show of the moment is the critically acclaimed “Beef,” which features Ali Wong and Steven Yeun as two strangers who end up in an escalating feud after a shooting range accident.
While there is no official word on the future of the comedy drama, creator Lee Sung Jin has indicated that he envisions a three-season arc. However, it’s worth noting that the show has been mired in controversy since a recovered clip revealed cast member David Chow describing himself as a sexual abuser. He later claimed to have made up the story for “shock value”.
AMC “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” is also trending on Netflix as the sixth and final season joined the platform on April 18.
The only other non-Netflix series on the chart is another spinoff, All American: Homecoming. The CW sports drama centers on Jeffrey Maya’s “All American” character Simone Hicks, who leaves Los Angeles to pursue her tennis dreams at a historically black college in Atlanta.
