The first season of Riot Games' League of Legends animated series Arcane may have already released all nine episodes on Netflix, but it's still dominating the streamer's charts across the world, and it's now the #1 English language series on the streaming platform this week.
Arcane, which follows the origin story of sisters and fellow League champions Jinx and Vi as well as the growing tensions between the twin cities Piltover and Zaun, originally premiered earlier this month, with three episodes being released each Saturday until the Nov. 20, when the final Act (episodes 6 to 9) premiered. The series is based on Riot's popular MOBA game League of Legends, and it's definitely one of the best titles Netflix released this year.
Unsurprisingly, Arcane is now the #1 English language series on Netflix, and the show is in the top 10 charts in 87 countries, according to the streaming giant's website. The series has been viewed for a total of 38.42 million hours this week.
Although the series has fallen to #8 in the U.S. charts for TV shows, it still holds the #2 spot for the top TV shows on Netflix worldwide with only Hellbound (South Korean series) topping it.
As you can see in the rankings below, Arcane has surpassed other English-language shows like Tiger King 2, Narcos Mexico: Season 3, Maid, You, and Cowboy Bebop.
Arcane is a wonderful steampunk fantasy masterpiece praised for its brilliant story, well-developed characters, and fantastic animation, so it's not surprising to see it dominate the Netflix charts. The series has already been renewed for a second season, and you can check out more details about Arcane Season 2 here.
