When a new season of a popular original series debuts on Netflix, it doesn't take long for subscribers to dive in and start binging. This is especially true of originals that are coming to an end, as fans don't want to wait to see the story's conclusion. It should come as no surprise that The Last Kingdom is already soaring through the Netflix Top 10 ranks just one day after its most recent season debut.
Historical drama The Last Kingdom has been huge for Netflix since coming over from BBC and becoming a streaming original. It was revealed last year that the show would be coming back for a fifth season, but that batch of episodes would be the end of the series. That final season debuted on Netflix this week and is immediately making waves with subscribers.
Thursday's edition of the rotating Netflix Top 10 list features The Last Kingdom in the second overall spot, just behind juggernaut limited series Inventing Anna. Thursday was The Last Kingdom's first day eligible for the list, so it wouldn't be much of a shock if it moved up another spot to number one on Friday.
