In India, the show spent 406 days in the top 10 on TV (almost 80% of the time since the feature was released).
We asked Mahmad Sohel Moldharia, who is the editor-in-chief of Otakukart, why he thinks the program is performing so well in the region:
“Money Heist is basically a show, which has everything Indians like, drama is the main genre in India and Money Heist has a lot of that.
What else is bank robbery, it”s used a lot in Indian movies, and a lot to be honest. It never ran as well as it did on Money Heist, though.
Good characters that attract Indians, women are almost never shown as protagonists in these shows in India, and money robbery is different, there are female protagonists like Tokyo, Nairobi and Raquel ”
The show spent most of the days in the top 10 in Hungary, with 474 days.
Money Heist”s worldwide popularity was even recognized with the release of the 2020 documentary Money theft: the phenomenon which covered its popularity around the world.
Of course, the show is coming to an end with both parts of season 5 slated for release in 2021.
Other insights from older Netflix Top 10 titles
We can get a lot of insights from this list about what content performs well on Netflix.
There are remarkably only two Netflix Originals in the top 10, with most others having licensed content with all but one (the elusive 365 days) being TV shows.
Only three US TV shows appear in the top 10 with Friends from Warner Brothers, The blacklist from Sony, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine of NBC Universal doing well around the world.
Most of the shows on the list are more than 1 season old (we know that many episodes give a show a better chance of acting), hence K-drama Crash Landing on You it”s so awesome with only a single season available.
