Marvel’s Luke Cage topped Germany’s digital list with 3.3 million demand expressions, with Sense 8 following in second place with 3.1 million demand expressions.

Returning series have dominated Germany’s digital list in general, however, with 13 Reasons Why, The Handmaid’s Tale and Santa Clarita Diet all making an appearance in the top ten.

Orange Is The New Black appeared in seventh place on the list with 1.6 million demand expressions as viewers gear up for the title’s sixth season, which is set premiere July 27th on Netflix.

Queer Eye also made an impression on audiences. It gained 1.9 million demand expressions and fifth place on the list.
