Squid Game Is Netflix’s Most-Watched Show Ever


It’s been revealed that Squid Game is now officially Netflix’s most-watched series of all time, leapfrogging Bridgerton and Money Heist in the process. This news was revealed by Pop Sugar among other sources.

I have to say that the numbers are pretty sensational. Squid Game is miles ahead of the competition. So much so that there isn’t really any competition. In the show’s first 28 days of being available to stream on Netflix, Squid Game’s view count was at 1,650,450,000.

That is utter madness, especially considering that Bridgerton, which is Netflix’s second-most streamed show, only got 625,490,000 views in its first 28 days of being available on the streaming platform. So, Squid Game got over twice the number of views than Bridgerton did, which is in second place.

The thing we have to keep in mind is that Netflix is very fast and loose with its numbers. They count two minutes as a view, which isn’t much for an entire series. That said, I’m pretty sure that most of the people that started watching Squid Game ended up finishing the series.

None of Netflix’s shows came close to Squid Game’s numbers

Money Heist Part 4 is in third place with 619,010,000 views in its first 28 days. Stranger Things Season 3 is in fourth place with 582,100,000 views. The Witcher Season 1 is in fifth place, with 541,010,000 views.

These are all very high numbers, but none of them come close to Squid Game’s numbers. It was revealed not too long ago that Squid Game Season 2 is already in development. We actually broke that story before it was ‘officially’ announced by Netflix.

It’s going to be interesting to see how well the second season does compared to the first, and also I can’t wait to see where the story goes next. I know that Netflix has big plans for this show, and they’ll want to make sure that interest in Squid Game remains very high.
