North Carolinians and South Carolinians will argue day and night over college football, college basketball, and barbecue sauce. But there’s at least one thing we seem to agree on. Our favorite show on Netflix is The Umbrella Academy, the very cool superhero drama starring Ellen Page.
Netflix doesn’t disclose actual ratings so a study employing Google Trends data was used to rank 2019’s highest-searched shows on Netflix in each state. Eight shows, including The Haunting of Hill House and Orange is the New Black, appear on the list.
Given the overwhelming the popularity of superhero movies, it’s not surprising that The Umbrella Academy would be the most-watched Netflix show in North Carolina, South Carolina, and thirteen other states. The first season is currently streaming. New episodes should drop later this year.
