While original shows on Netflix get the most attention, the most-viewed shows on the streaming service are almost all off-network shows, according to a study by 7Park Data.

In June, Orange is the New Black, which had just released new original episodes, jumped to quickly become the No. 1 show on Netflix around the world, 7Park said, based on data from 1 million over-the-top users who collectively stream more than 1 million hours of content each day.

Stranger Things was also among the series released by Netflix in June, but to less initial fanfare. It slowly became a hit through praise by critics and word of mouth. 7Park expects the eerie show to appear in the July rankings.

The rest of the top 10 shows on Netflix in June were How I Met Your Mother, Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural, Family Guy, Grey’s Anatomy, Friends, Prison Break, The Walking Dead and The Vampire Diaries.
