Squid Game is currently standing at the No. 1 spot on Netflix’s trending list, outranking beloved titles like Sex EducationCocomelon and The Circle.

With achieving a feat like that in only a matter of days, you’ve probably been preparing your weekend for a non-stop binge of this highly-ranked show. We certainly don’t blame you as it is said to be a title that is an absolute must-watch going into the Halloween season.

But before you sit down to watch, you may want to know the maturity rating for the series to cover all your bases. We tell you everything to know.

Squid Game age rating

Netflix has currently given this new release a TV-MA age rating, which means that those 17 years old and younger are not permitted to watch this original series.

Squid Game features scenes that depict extreme violence and gore, strong language and frightening moments that are simply not suitable for a younger audience. All in all, it’s best to table this particular series for later when everyone watching is a tad bit older.

Of course, waiting until everyone is of age may take years from now, which is why we want to give you a few recommendations just like Squid Game that will keep you company.

No Escape Room is a Netflix movie about a young girl trying to escape a deadly room with limited time, which is a premise that is very similar to Squid Game. However, the best aspect of the film is that the movie is rated TV-14, meaning it passes the age check for your upcoming family movie night. DeadconProm Night and Two Sentence Horror Stories are also Netflix titles worth checking out.

The 2021 Netflix original series may be rated TV-MA, but just because the younger ones can’t watch the series, doesn’t mean that you have to skip out on it!

Be sure to stream every single episode of Squid Game streaming right now only on Netflix.
