Netflix’s original series Stranger Things (pictured) continues to dominate overall TV demand for the fifth consecutive week.

Starring Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard and Winona Ryder, the sci-fi horror smash led both the top 10 digital originals and top 10 overall TV shows in Canada for the week of June 13 to 19. It was 101.3 times more in demand than the average TV series in Canada for that period, according to Parrot Analytics.

Directed by Toronto-born Deborah Chow, Lucasfilms’ Obi-Wan Kenobi (34.04) on Disney+ came in second on both the digital originals list and overall TV series demand. Meanwhile, Amazon Studios’ Toronto-shot The Boys (32.98) on Prime Video made both lists at No. 3.

Rounding out the digital originals list are Toronto-shot Paramount+ series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (24.13) at No. 4, and HBO Max’s Our Flag Means Death (22.89) – available on Crave in Canada – at No. 5.

In the overall TV series demand list, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants (30.05) ranked at No. 4, and NBC’s Saturday Night Live (28.16) at No. 5.

Parrot Analytics calculates its Top 10 lists using Demand Expressions, which are shown by using a metric that demonstrates how much more in-demand the top series are than the average TV show in Canada. For example, a difference of 1x represents the market average and 10x means a series is ten times more in demand than the average TV show in this market.
