Here’s what Delaware watched on Netflix last year

The canceled "Iron Fist" was the First State's fave of 2018.


You can learn a lot about a state by looking at the data behind-the-scenes.

When it comes to Delaware, what we usually see is that we’re not a state that marches to the same tune as other states, whether it’s a preference for Cinnamon jelly beans or rooting for the Dodgers.

Recently, a team at used Google Trends to compile a list of the most popular shows on Netflix in each state in 2018. Delaware’s top show? “Iron Fist,” the Marvel martial arts superhero series that was axed in October.

“Iron Fist” was most popular in only two other states — Alaska and Hawaii, reinforcing Delaware’s reputation for being in its own world — if not geographically, figuratively.

The most popular shows included “13 Reasons Why,” “Orange is the New Black” and “Stranger Things.” “Jane the Virgin” (one of the few that is not Netflix Original) came out on top in California and Texas — surprising, until you think about the fact that “Jane” is the only show on the list with primary Latino representation.

A few states are “onlies” — Pennsylvania is the only state where “Mindhunter” came out on top, Oregon is the only “Disenchantment” state (which is a shame — the Matt Groening original series is a blast), and Washington liked “Altered Carbon” for some reason. The most obscure “only,” though, is Montana, whose top Netflix show of 2018 is the German horror mystery series “Dark.” 


Delaware isn’t the only state to favor a show that’s since been cancelled. In addition to Alaska and Hawaii, other states have had to say goodbye to their Marvel faves on Netflix, including Maryland and Georgia, which favored “Luke Cage” and “Daredevil” states New York, Virginia, Kentucky, Florida and South Dakota.

Most relatable? The District of Columbia, who came in with a 16-way tie that included otherwise not-on-the-list gems like “American Vandal,” “Black Mirror” and “GLOW.”
