The new episodes also inspired people watch the first season of the show, which racked up an additional 17 million minutes watched to take the number 9 slot. However, even combined, those numbers don’t eclipse the thriller series Pieces of Her, which was watched for an impressive 95 million hours that week.

Netflix also released data about foreign-language movies and TV shows for the week of March 7-13:
