Having reached 111 million fans, the streaming service has confirmed that the show is now its biggest series launch ever – besting the previous title holder, last year’s Bridgerton.

Squid Game focuses on a group of people in Korea who are in need of cash and decide to take part in a series of children’s games. Only the people who are running the games will kill anyone that loses so that only one player gets to keep the enormous cash prize that is on offer.
The story doesn’t have a happy ending for many of the characters, but it’s a great ride nonetheless and many of us were obsessed with the show over its nine-episode run. Hopefully, that will not be the end of the story as given the way it wrapped things up, it seems likely that we’ll be seeing a Squid Game season 2 at some point in the future…

It took just 17 days and 111M global fans for it to become our biggest series launch ever.
