Chernobyl now top-rated TV series on IMDB

It sits ahead of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and The Wire.

HBO’s chilling drama Chernobyl has become the highest-rated TV series of all time on review site IMDB. 

The critically-acclaimed series, which aired its fifth and final episode on Tuesday, currently sits at an impressive 9.6 out of 10. 

Over 150,000 users have submitted a rating for Chernobyl so far, with 121,540 of them awarding it a perfect 10 out of 10. 

Second in the Amazon-owned site’s ranking of TV series is the BBC’s stunning 2016 documentary series Planet Earth II which scored a 9.5 out of 10. 

That’s closely followed by the Steven Spielburg produced Band of Brothers, the original Planet Earth from 2006 and gripping crime-drama Breaking Bad all of which sit at 9.4.

Chernobyl dramatises the events surrounding the devastating 1986 Urkrainian nuclear disaster, from the initial catastrophic explosion to the Soviet Union’s subsequent attempts to cover it up. 

It received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics with Stellan Skarsgard, Jared Harris and Emily Watson leading the large cast.

All five episodes of Chernobyl are available to stream on NOW TV.
