When They See Us has been a hit with Netflix fans over recent weeks and has now replaced a seasoned series as the streaming platform’s most popular show.
However, When They See Us has now replaced the devilish drama on the top of the charts after becoming an instant success.
So moving, difficult to watch at times but beautiful
Director Ava DuVernay shared the news with her followers and simply wrote “faints” to illustrate her shock at the news.
Fans of the show soon congratulated her on the show’s meteoric rise, with one fan saying: “Wow. Netflix barely ever talks about their viewing numbers. This is big. Congrats!!!”
Another added: “Well deserved. So moving, difficult to watch at times but beautiful.”
Other fans praised the show’s content and what it means, with one adding: “Thank you again for giving us a much-needed voice of truth, empathy, justice & compassion.”
Another added: “And I pray the most impactful. It was done with excellence and to watch it knowing this isn’t fiction was mind-blowing. You did it with 13th and you have done it again. This series will be used to educate others and hopefully change the way we view our justice system.”
