Netflix’s ‘Luther: The Fallen Sun’ Rises to Top Streaming’s Most-Watched List | Charts

Nine years after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s mysterious disappearance, investigative miniseries “MH370” sweeps the streaming ranking

Netflix’s film continuation of the popular BBC crime series “Luther: The Fallen Sun” earned the top spot in streaming for the week of March 8-14 in the latest Wrap Report tracking the most watched programs across linear TV and streaming, according to viewership trends collected from Samba TV’s panel of more than 3 million households drawn from over 25 million connected TVs, balanced to the U.S. Census.

Featuring Idris Elba reprising his role as Luther and co-starring Andy Serkis and Cynthia Erivo, the film rolled out in select theaters in February before making its streaming debut on Netflix last week. The movie sequel succeeded so far in retaining its die-hard fans while at the same time solidifying new ones by tapping into a global audience beyond viewers of the British series, which has three seasons available to stream on Pluto TV and all five seasons on Hulu. The fragmented streaming rights situation doesn’t seem to have deterred fans of the show.
