Updated September 13, 2021

What’s trending on Netflix this week?

The shows and movies most popular on Netflix according to their subscribers are found on the service, but that’s only part of the story.

We’ve made a list of the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix U.S. that our visitors have been reading about over the seven days ending September 12.

Last week’s buzzy no. 1 on our list, Clickbait, has dropped a few slots to position four, replaced at the top by the action flick, Kate, which sees Mary Elizabeth Winstead playing a John-Wick-alike who causes all sorts of bloodshed in Tokyo. Also new to the list this week: On the Verge, a series about four L.A. women in midlife crisis mode, created by actress, writer, and director Julie Delpy, most known for the Before trilogy. Then there’s the German film Prey, a survival thriller about a group of friends who find themselves stalked by a sniper while on a hiking trip, and the return of Belgian sci-fi series Into the Night. When it comes to Netflix, it seems peril pops.

Directed By: Inti Calfat, Dirk Verheye

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though definitely not for all tastes, Brand New Cherry Flavor is a delightfully deranged trip anchored by another incredible performance from Rosa Salazar.

The Chair: Season 1 (2021)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Chair is too short to achieve all of its ambitions, but spot-on observations about academia and a sturdy ensemble led by an empathetic -- and hilarious -- performance from Sandra Oh ensure it's never less than watchable.


He's All That (2021)

Adjusted Score: 31874%
Critics Consensus: Hobbled by a lack of chemistry between its stars, He's All That comes up short on numerous opportunities to improve upon its gender-swapped source material.
Synopsis: An influencer who specializes in makeovers bets that she can transform an unpopular classmate into a prom king.... [More]
Directed By: Mark Waters

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

Clickbait: Season 1 (2021)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With an array of flashy, half-formed ideas and thin characterizations, Clickbait is more akin to its namesake than the deeper show it aspires to be.


Worth (2020)

Adjusted Score: 84600%
Critics Consensus: It isn't as hard-hitting as one might expect, but Worth remains a powerfully performed and rewardingly complex dramatization of real-life events.
Synopsis: In Washington, D.C., lawyer Kenneth Feinberg battles cynicism, bureaucracy and politics to help the victims of 9/11.... [More]
Directed By: Sara Colangelo

Money Heist (2017)

Synopsis: A criminal mastermind who goes by "The Professor" has a plan to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history... [More]


Kate (2021)

Adjusted Score: 43414%
Critics Consensus: Mary Elizabeth Winstead does reliably gripping work in the title role, but Kate is disappointingly derivative of numerous other female assassin films.
Synopsis: Slipped a fatal poison on her final job, a ruthless Tokyo assassin has less than 24 hours to find out... [More]
Directed By: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan
