They put their friendship to the test once they begin their high school lives together. Sierra Capri, Diego Tinoco, Jason Genao, and Brett Gray are amongst the popular series’ cast.
A few follow-up seasons came in at the next two spots on the Netflix list. No. 2 overall was “Making a Murderer: Part 2,” while “13 Reasons Why: Season 2” took the third spot. “Last Chance U: INDY” and “Bodyguard” rounded out the top five of the list.
