Last week’s most-watched programmes were ‘Severance’ and ‘The Essex Serpent’

This past week’s most popular streaming series were Severance and The Essex Serpent, which were both on Apple TV+, according to data provided by JustWatch.com.

The Essex Serpent and Severance took the last two positions on the JustWatch ranking, which included series from Netflix and Disney+.

From Ben Stiller and creator Dan Erickson, Severance centers around Mark Scout (Adam Scott), a leader of a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided between their work and personal lives.

This experiment in ‘work-life balance’ is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself.

Candy, Beter Call Saul, and the upcoming programme The Staircase filled out the top three spots in the poll.

Set in Victorian England featuring a star studded cast led by Claire Danes, Tom Hiddleston, Frank Dillane, Clémence Poésy and Hayley Squires, The Essex Serpent follows London widow Cora Seaborne (Danes) who moves to Essex to investigate reports of a mythical serpent. She forms surprising bond of science and skepticism with the local vicar (Hiddleston), but when tragedy strikes, locals accuse her of attracting the creature.

Both of the new Apple TV+ series are excellent additions to the company’s ever-expanding library. If you want to watch, you’ll need an Apple TV+ or Apple One subscription.
