The popularity of “Bridgerton” and “Lupine” on Netflix cannot be denied. The two series – launched at the end of December and the beginning of January respectively – still feature in the top 10 of the platform’s most popular programs in France in February. At the top of the ranking, however, we find a novelty: the series “Always there for you”, carried by Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke, which was the most watched series on the platform for twelve non-consecutive days in February.
On the film side, two titles uploaded during the month topped the daily charts for seven days each: the third installment of the “To all the boys” saga and “I Care a Lot”, the comedy which won a Golden Globes at its lead actress Rosamund Pike. But, according to the monthly ranking that we publish, the most popular film of February is actually the French comedy “En passant pécho”.
