Check out: The best original streaming shows on every platform

Sites like Reelgood and Nielsen track streaming viewership from week to week. We can also see Netflix‘s own top 10 titles at any given time.

Based on all of that, we’ve compiled 10 of the most popular streaming shows from November. Read on if you want to stay on top of all the titles everyone’s been binging.


Men stand on the foggy deck of a ship in 1899

The series follows a group of immigrants on their way to New York aboard a steamship when they encounter another ship. The second vessel is adrift and seemingly abandoned, but the group suddenly faces a series of bizarre mysteries upon investigating.

The White Lotus

The White Lotus season 2 on HBO

The first season of The White Lotus was a huge hit, shot and released early during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was initially meant to be a limited series but was so successful that HBO ordered a second season, which has been one of the most popular streaming shows of November — it’s technically a cable show, but it streams simultaneously on HBO Max. The new season sees new misbehaving, rich American tourists, this time vacationing in Italy, where conflict, drama, and the promise of mysterious deaths looms over the resort getaway.
