Squid Game is likely to become the biggest TV show ever on Netflix. This is on condition that the early viewership figures hold. This is a creepy and violent Korean series which premiered on Netflix last month.
The show is about 456 contestants who compete against each other in a deadly and mysterious survival game. There are multiple rounds in the game and the top prize is valued at £30 million.
The characters are shaped on the traditional children’s game such as Red Light and Green Light and the consequence of losing out is death. Viewers have been left shocked by the gory scenes in the horror thriller series. However, this has not stopped the TV Show from becoming a global sensation. The show has topped the charts as the no. 1 show in many countries across the globe.
The show has been likened to Takeshi’s Castle considering that fans have been asking whether the show which reveals on the big inequality gaps is in fact real.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix co-CEO, stated that the series will definitely be their biggest non-English-language show in the world. Ted also added that “there was a very good chance it is going to be the biggest show ever.”
If this comes to pass, the show will ultimately overtake Bridgerton which currently holds the record as number one original show of all time. The show had 82 million subscribers watching at least two minutes of the show in its first 28 days on Netflix. A total 625 million hours viewed within the first four weeks of release.
Squid Show has been on the platform for a couple of days and yet it has proved to be very popular. Fans have even made games based on the deadly challenges in the show. These challenges have been seen all over Roblox. Further, several Squid Game remakes have emerged. Netflix has had great success with international series.
