“Squid Game” — an fictional drama from South Korea — is Netflix’s greatest ever series at launch.

The streaming monster said in a tweet late Tuesday that the much-hyped South Korean drama show has drawn in 111 million watchers worldwide since its Sept. 17 release.

It’s the principal Netflix show to top 100 million viewers in the main month, the organization said. The series handily smashed the past record from “Bridgerton,” which was watched by 82 million families in the initial 28 days.

The series is No. 1 on Netflix’s Top 10 lists in 94 nations all throughout the world. It’s the platform’s very first Korean series to arrive at No. 1 in the United States.

The series isn’t for the faint-hearted. It sees fictional contestants contend in a series of kids’ games, with the expectation that they’ll win stacks of money. On the off chance that they lose, they’re shot dead by masked guards in red jumpsuits.

It’s important that, on the grounds that 111 million individuals saw Netflix, that doesn’t mean they watched the whole series beginning to end. Netflix’s considers just bring with account clients who tuned in for no less than two minutes.

Global development has been a key focus for Netflix as of late, having put intensely into foreign-language shows and films like “Money Heist” and “The Platform,” which achieved both basic and commercial achievement.

In the same way as other top streaming series, “Squid Game” has has become a pop culture marvel. The series has produced images and even Halloween outfit thoughts.

The success of “Squid Game” addresses Netflix’s capacity to create an overall hit. Netflix has 209 million subscribers and the organization has attempted to reach audiences on a worldwide scale.
