The last week of 2022 on Netflix is under the banner of one Top 10 dominated by the saga of Harry Potter between most watched movies in Italy, while between TV series Emily in Paris continues to confirm itself as one of the most successful titles of the streaming platform.
Indeed, the festive atmosphere seems to have revived interest in the film adaptations of JK Rowling’s novels which have monopolized user preferences.

The last days of 2023 see Glass Onion, in its second week of presence in the catalog, dominate the ranking of the 10 most viewed titles. The Rian Johnson-directed sequel is number one in nearly all of the 93 countries it charted in and also dragged the previous chapter of Detective Benoit’s investigation, Dinner and Murder, to seventh place of the most watched feature films.
The Italian comedy Christmas at all costs slips by two positions in a few days, however remaining in the Top 3.
The entire ranking is therefore dominated by the various chapters of the Harry Potter film saga.
The film based on the Matilda Musical, a show inspired by the children’s novel by Roald Dahl, instead debuts in last place in the weekly ranking, still managing to make its way into the Top 10 of 89 countries, also reaching the top in some countries such as Bolivia and Peru.

The most watched TV series on Netflix Italy of the week from 26 December 2022 to 1 January 2023
The first two positions in the ranking of the most watched series of the week on Netflix in Italy remain unchanged: the professional and sentimental misadventures of the protagonist of Emily in Paris, now in its third season, continue to attract the attention of users and the charismatic Wednesday remains stable in second place.
The Lily Collins-starring series is in the Top 10 in 92 countries, but fails to make it to number one in the US states, while maintaining its dominance in Europe.
The second season of Alice in Borderland climbs one position and enters the Top 3, while the first arrives in seventh place in the ranking. The series, as to be expected, is dominating the charts in Asian states. On the other hand, the miniseries The Witcher: Blood Origin remains at the foot of the podium, present among the 10 most viewed titles in 87 countries, but not able to reach the top of the rankings internationally.
Charlie Cox, interpreter in the MCU of Daredevil, is back on the screens with the miniseries Treason which debuts in the fifth position of the classification of the most viewed titles in Italy. Internationally, there are 74 countries in which it is within the weekly Top 10, also reaching the top in five countries.
Few changes in the rest of the ranking positions that are filled by The Recruit, the show Summer Job, the fourth season of The Sinner and the Harry & Meghan project.
