Korean Series Squid Game Set To Overtake Bridgerton As Netflix’s Biggest Show Till Date 

Squid game is on its way to becoming Netflix’s biggest TV show ever, if the early viewership figures hold.

The creepy hyper-violent Korean movie series premiered on the platform last month and sees 456 desperate contestants compete with each other in a mysterious and deadly survival game. The multiple rounds of games have a top prize of almost £30 million.

The Squid Game is said to be a horrifying version of Takeshi’s Castle, some fans have repeatedly asked if the dystopian show which sheds light on staggering wealth inequalities, was in fact real

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos who said the series will “definitely be their biggest non-English-language show in the world”,  added that there was “a very good chance it’s going to be their biggest show ever”

If this stands, the show will overtake Bridgerton which is Netflix’s current number one original show of all time. Bridgerton had 82 million subscribers tuning in to watch at least two minutes of the show in its first 28 days on the service, and a whopping 625 million total hours viewed within its first four weeks of release on the service.

The streaming giant has had huge success with international series, with the likes of Germany’s Dark and Spain’s Money Heist proving popular with viewers.
