Chances are, you’ve never even heard of the TV show Story of Yanxi Palace, but despite that, it was the most Googled TV show of 2018. Based on Zhou Mo’s novel of the same name, the Chinese period drama has been streamed more than 15 billion times, and was the most-watched online drama in China for 39 consecutive days. Initially available only through China’s equivalent of Netflix, iQiyi, this series is 70-episodes-long, and it has since been broadcast in 70 other countries including America. It hasn’t been aired in the UK or Ireland yet, but it’s definitely one to watch out for.
