To give that number some specific circumstance, Netflix declared recently that 82 million families watched “Bridgerton” in the initial 28 days following its Christmas debut. “Squid Game” outperformed that number in a more limited measure of time.
The series is No. 1 on Netflix’s Top 10 records in 94 nations all throughout the planet. It’s the stage’s very first Korean series to arrive at No. 1 in the United States.

The Korean series, which centers around a Battle Royale-style game show where contenders battle to death for a gigantic monetary reward, has been an enormous marvel, rousing dedication (and images) in its expanding fan base. This declaration implies Squid Game has now overwhelmed hugely well known shows like Bridgerton and Lupin as Netflix’s most famous show.
Squid Game’s control over Bridgerton was recently prodded by Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos during the Code Conference on Sept. 27, where he uncovered a portion of the review information from the stage’s most famous movies and series. At that point, he uncovered that Shonda Rhimes’ heartfelt period show saw 82 million supporters tune in for something like two minutes during its initial 28 days on the stage, however that it was not prone to hold the best position for long, causing him a deep sense of shock.
