We already knew that squid game was fantastic and universally popular; now we have a better idea of just how popular it is.
Today (per TVLine) it was revealed that the Korean drama reached more than 3.2 . in the week of September 27 billion minutes watched on Netflix. That puts the show in extremely rare company. YOU season 2, Ozark, The Umbrella Academy, Tiger King, and The crown are the only other shows to have achieved such a feat in one week – Ozark and tiger king actually did it more than once.

While we don’t think these ratings will shock many people, they do speak of the show’s worldwide popularity, which grew slowly after its release before becoming a runaway sensation. Merchandise based on the series is now coming, which we’re not sure anyone expected before it first came out. We also think there are more weeks to come when it will again cross the 3 billion minute mark. People are still discovering it!
Of course the crazy thing here is that in the midst of everything we’ve seen with squid game headlines, there is still no confirmation that there will be another season. It’s going to be hard for this show to catch lightning in a bottle the same way again, but we wouldn’t be shocked if Netflix and the creative team tried it. (Of course we don’t want another season being forced; so much of this particular show is about capitalism and it would be quite hypocritical to continue it for financial reasons.)
Are you surprised about that? squid game generates this kind of impressive viewing figures?
