Streaming services from Hulu to Amazon Prime Video to CBS All Access are now making original shows – but Netflix is still the undisputed king.

In 2016, out of the top 12 streaming shows that got the most buzz, every single one was Netflix except for Amazon’s “The Man in The High Castle” (at No. 7), according to a new report by research firm Parrot Analytics.

Parrot measures the “demand” for a show by tracking different factors, from social-media chatter to file-sharing data, to get a sense of which shows have captured the public imagination. Netflix famously doesn’t release data on how many people are watching its shows.

But Parrot says that in 2016, Netflix scored big with fan-favorite reboots, like “Gilmore Girls” and “Fuller House,” and Marvel shows. So expect more of those in the future. It also had a pair of mystery sci-fi hits with “Stranger Things” and the more recent “The OA.” The only documentary series to crack the top list was “Making a Murderer” at No. 8, whose expansive global conversation actually had a real-world effect the case.

Here are the top streaming shows in 2016, according to Parrot:
