This Map Shows the Most Popular Netflix Show in All 50 States

What Americans are binge-watching across the country.

A new study has revealed the most popular Netflix show in each state for 2018. HighSpeedInternet.com published a map on January 2 with the results, which found that the top two shows in the U.S. last year were 13 Reasons Why and The End of the F*cking World.

To determine each state’s top show, researchers at the Internet review website analyzed Google Trends, looking at which Netflix shows received the most searches throughout the year.

According to the study, the most popular show in the country was 13 Reasons Why, which replaced last year’s top pick of Orange is the New Black. The controversial teen drama was ranked number one in seven states: Connecticut, Illinois, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island.

In a close second was The End of the F*cking World, the British comedy-drama that won over six states: Arizona, Iowa, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. While a release date has yet to be announced, the series announced a second season is in the works, saying “we’ll be f*cking back.”

Other popular shows included Daredevil, Orange is the New Black, and Stranger Things. Interestingly, despite the spike in Daredevil‘s popularity (it didn’t hold the top spot in any states in 2017), Netflix is canceling the Marvel series.

Researchers also found that only four states (Louisiana, Missouri, Utah, and West Virginia) have the same favorite show as last year, noting that there’s been a clear shift in what Americans are watching. And some states, like Missouri with Ozark and New Mexico with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, showed a preference for Netflix series set in their own backyard.

One outlier in the study was Washington D.C., which was included despite not being a state. The nation’s capital couldn’t make up its mind when it came to a favorite show, boasting a 16-way tie between series.
