  • Apple TV+ show Severance was the third most-streamed show of last week.
  • Only Better Call Saul and Yellowstone were more popular according to new numbers from JustWatch.

Following a whole lot of buzz about its recent series finale, Apple TV+ hit Severance found itself sitting in third spot in a list of the top-ten most-streamed shows of last week according to new numbers shared by the streaming guide people at JustWatch.

Those JustWatch results have only Yellowstone and Better Call Saul as the two shows that were more popular than Apple TV+ fan-favorite Severance last week. The rest of the top-ten included big names like Netflix show Russian Doll which made its return for a new season, while Disney+ saw Moon Knight appear towards the end of the list.

Severance has become hugely popular and has already been signed for a second season.

From Ben Stiller and creator Dan Erickson, Severance centers around Mark Scout (Adam Scott), a leader of a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided between their work and personal lives.This experiment in 'work-life balance' is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself.

The first full season of Severance is now available to stream on Apple TV+ and you should absolutely do that if you haven't yet taken it in already. You'll need a $4.99 per month subscription or be an Apple One subscriber to do so, however.
