The Most Popular Shows On Netflix Right Now Besides 'Cowboy Bebop'

A new South Korean thriller and the "Tiger King" sequel also are trending in this week's rankings.

“Cowboy Bebop” is the most popular show on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

A live action adaptation of a 1998 Japanese anime series, “Cowboy Bebop” follows a group of bounty hunters traveling across the solar system on a spaceship in the future. The show, which premiered on Nov. 19, stars John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Elena Satine and Alex Hassell.

The second-most popular series at the moment is “Tiger King 2” ― a continuation of the docuseries about private zoos that captivated audiences and spawned countless memes in March 2020. The second installment consists of five episodes and has received mostly negative reviews.
