“The Lincoln Lawyer” moved to No. 1 on Netflix’s list of top English-language titles for the week of May 16-22, its first full week after premiering May 13. Meanwhile, the first season of “Stranger Things” showed up in 10th place as viewers looked to catch up before “Stranger Things 4” debuts Friday.

Netflix’s “The Lincoln Lawyer” follows ​Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), an iconoclastic idealist who runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles. The David E. Kelley-produced show is based on the series of bestselling novels by Michael Connelly, with the first season following the second book, “The Brass Verdict.”

The series also stars Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole and Angus Sampson.

On the non-English-language side, “Who Killed Sara?” Season 3 took the first-place position with 46.6 million hours watched in its first five days. In second was “Welcome to Eden” Season 1 with 28.7 million.
