Netflix is notoriously mum on viewership numbers, but the Netflix Top 10 TV shows list at least gives us some idea of what's working for the streaming service and what isn't. The Netflix Top 10 list of TV shows for Monday, June 21 adds three new shows as the list turns over thanks to new releases. The highest debut is the Spanish YA series Elite, which just premiered its fourth season and sits at No. 4. At No. 6 is the travel docuseries The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals for all you wannabe influencers out there, and at No. 10 is the Icelandic supernatural series Katla. Manifest fends off the competition to stay in the top spot, followed by Sweet Tooth and Black Summer.

But of Netflix's Top 10 TV shows, which shows are actually worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix Top 10 TV shows list and guide you through what to binge and what to skip. We do the same for Netflix's Top 10 moviesas well as Netflix's overall Top 10 list. If you're looking ahead, here are the best shows to watch on Netflix in June.

Based on Netflix's Top 10 TV Shows for Monday, June 21

1. Manifest


For fans of: Doomed flights, twists and turns, Lost | Is it good?: It'll keep you on your toes

A flight that was presumed missing for five years finally lands, and its passengers reintegrate into society, only to discover that there's a much deeper mystery going on that they work to uncover. (Friday's rank: 1)


2. Sweet Tooth


For fans of: Animal-human politics, the end of the world | Is it good?: Give it a shot even if you're over dystopian fantasies

Yeah, yeah, it's another post-apocalyptic show, but this one is kind of adorable? Sweet Tooth, based on the DC comic, is set in the aftermath of a viral outbreak (again, yeah, yeah, but give it a chance) that decimates most of the world's population as a wave of animal-human hybrid children are born. Our hero is Gus, a young half-deer half-human boy, who was raised in the woods by his father and goes on an adventure to find his mother in the American West while evading idiot humans who have an irrational fear of things they don't understand. It's a charming story with an indie-folk vibe that's all of sudden way too relevant. (Friday's rank: 2)


3. Black Summer


For fans of: Intense no-cut actions sequences, life and death situations | Is it good?: It's awesome (for the right person)

Not all zombie shows are built the same, and this spiritual spin-off of the goofy Z Nation focuses on the gritty life-or-death situation of a small group of people trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. It's intentionally minimal on plot (and at times dialogue), letting the action -- frequently told in long takes with no cuts and some athletic cameramen -- tell the story. (Friday's rank: 6)

Here's what's worth watching in Netflix's Top 10 movies

4. Elite


For fans of: Melodrama, melodrama, melodrama | Is it good?: Everyone on this show is insane and it's just the best

Nothing shakes up a prep school show like graduation. The smash-hit Spanish teen drama Elite said goodbye to some of its original stars at the end of Season 3, paving the way for a new class of rich kids with secrets. A strict principal and four new students arrive at Las Encinas in the fourth season, and they're bringing a new mystery with them. (Friday's rank: n/a)


5. Cocomelon


For fans of: Mashed vegetables, pacifiers | Is it good?: For babies, sure

Colorful objects, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this catnip for toddlers and younger kids who get screentime. (Friday's rank: 4)


6. The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals


For fans of: Watching strangers go on lavish vacations | Is it good?: It's pretty mind-numbing

A trio of young people act all young while traveling the world and staying at Airbnbs, basically. (Friday's rank: n/a)


7. Workin' Moms


For fans of: Cult sitcoms, giving moms their due | Is it good?: It's fun!

Much like Schitt's Creek, Workin' Moms is a Canadian sitcom that really found its audience when it premiered on Netflix. Catherine Reitman's comedy about four working mothers just trying to get through the day is now in its fifth season, and the show is exploring everything from life after maternity leave to equal pay in the office to dealing with troubled teens. (Friday's rank: 3)

Here's what's worth watching in Netflix's overall Top 10 (movies and TV shows)

8. Record of Ragnarok


For fans of: Bloodsport's kumite, fighting video games | Is it good?: It's OK, it does what it does

Not much to chew on here. This Netflix original anime is an adaptation of the manga, in which gods review whether humans should exist every 1,000 years. This time around, they decide humans should be eradicated, but the humans are given one last chance to prove their worth in one-on-one battles against gods in an arena. Fight! (Friday's rank: 8)


9. Lupin


For fans of: French crime, watching people pull off heists | Is it good?: It's very entertaining and easy to get through

Omar Sy stars as Assane Diop, a man who is essentially a French Bruce Wayne if Batman were more of a cat burglar than dark knight. Diop starts the series trying to steal a valuable necklace from the Louvre with a grand heist as part of a revenge plot against the wealthy family responsible for the death of his father several years prior. From there, the heists and trickery get even more fun, and are always performed under the guise of being the good guy. (Friday's rank: 5)


10. Katla


For fans of: Nordic noir, volcanoes | Is it good?: If you're into slow-burning mysteries, go for it

In this Icelandic supernatural mystery series, people thought to be missing begin reappearing covered in ash from a local subglacial volcano. It's a bit slow, so if you need action you can pass. (Friday's rank: n/a)
