The list features Making a Murderer, The Haunting of Hill House and more, but there’s a surprise number one which you’ll probably need to check out soon

Have you had much time to watch any new TV shows this year? Probably not, right?

There’s just so much going on, from panicking about train ticket prices to panicking about Brexit to panicking about the end of the world. Everything is happening all at once and it’s a bit much, really.

Well, some of you clearly at least have a few hours spare per year, judging by Netflix’s guide to the most-binged shows of 2018.

As part of its traditional year-end round-up, Netflix has come up with a ranking of the shows which we “fell in binge with”.

According to their blog, this means “Netflix series released between January 1 to November 28, 2018 with the highest average watch time per viewing session.”

It’s based on US data, but we wouldn’t be surprised if at least a few of the shows listed would also find their way into a UK Netflix top 10.

Among the series on the list are The Haunting of Hill House – the horror show described by Stephen King as “close to a work of genius” – and the second season of true crime docuseries Making a Murderer.

However, the number one pick might not be what you’d expect.

Relegating Making a Murderer and 13 Reasons Why to podium places is On My Block, a coming-of-age series which premiered in March and has already been renewed for a second season.

The show has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Vulture’s Matt Zoller Seitz writing: “One of the many remarkable things about this series is how it folds crime and the awareness of potential violence into everyday life, which is something white sitcoms never do unless it’s a Very Special Episode.”

Netflix’s top 10 most binged shows in 2018:

1. On My Block

2. Making a Murderer: Part 2

3. 13 Reasons Why: Season 2

4. Last Chance U: INDY

5. Bodyguard

6. Fastest Car

7. The Haunting of Hill House

8. Anne with an E: Season 2

9. Insatiable

10. Orange Is the New Black: Season 6
