The 15 Most Rewatched TV Shows Of The Streaming Era

Most Rewatched TV Shows 2020

There’s a certain comfort to be found in rewatching a beloved series. Something about the familiarity and time-honoured moments – oftentimes comedic – is a sure-fire way to secure a bit of serotonin when you’re feeling low, almost neurologically comparable to seeing an old mate. Which is probably why a good majority of the most rewatched TV shows in the modern era just so happen to be ensemble affairs centred around that very concept: a tight-knit group of friends.

According to data collated by BroadbandDeals, approximately 22% of people have rewatched their favourite TV shows more than 10 times. And interestingly enough, 11 of the top 15 list entrants are currently available to stream via Australian Netflix (with 3 of the remaining 4 having once been in the ANZ Netflix catalogue). Certainly not a coincidence, if you ask me.

While The Office (US) came in at #3, the Nielsen figures revealed to be the most streamed TV show in 2020 “by far”, racking up 57 billion minutes across the American population alone.
