Hold on to your reindeers, because it's official: Baby Reindeer -- the thrilling semi-biographical series created by and starring Richard Gadd -- is now one of Netflix's most popular series of all time!

According to Deadline, this dark comedy series has crept its way to No. 10 on the streamer’s all-time English-language TV series list after amassing 84.5 million views since its release on April 11. This impressive feat has bumped The Witcher season 1 off the list, and there's still time for it to move up a few more spots.

Baby Reindeer still has 30 days left in its premiere window, giving it a solid chance to climb even higher, potentially rivaling heavyweights like Bridgerton season 2 or Stranger Things 3. This milestone is particularly noteworthy because Baby Reindeer isn’t attached to any existing IP. Instead, it relied on word-of-mouth and critical acclaim to fuel its rise.

For those who haven't jumped on the Baby Reindeer bandwagon, the series follows Donny (Richard Gadd), a struggling comedian whose act of kindness towards a vulnerable woman named Martha spirals into an obsessive and suffocating stalking ordeal. Martha's behavior threatens to derail both of their lives, creating a gripping narrative that's hard to look away from.

The official synopsis from Netflix’s Media Center reads:

"Based on the award-winning and hit Edinburgh Fringe one-man play, Baby Reindeer follows struggling comedian Donny Dunn’s (Richard Gadd) warped relationship with his female stalker and the impact it has on him as he is ultimately forced to face a deeply buried trauma. This compelling, darkly funny true story also stars Jessica Gunning as Martha, Nava Mau as Teri, and Tom Goodman-Hill as Darrien."
