Squid Game has officially surpassed all previous Netflix series launch records.
In its first 28 days, the Korean drama drew 111 million viewers, pushing Bridgerton (82 million) off the 1st position.
Anyone who watched two minutes of a series on Netflix counts as a view.
It demonstrates that Netflix’s goal of producing more international series has been a great success. Squid Game “has gone through beyond our wildest aspirations,” Netflix CEO Minyoung Kim told CNN.
The nine-part series, which premiered in September, follows a bunch of misfits as they participate in a variety of kids’ playground games.
