Squid Game was the hottest show on Netflix when it came out, without a doubt. The series premiered on Netflix in September 2021, and according to Deadline, Squid Game is one of Netflix’s most-watched shows of all time. It’s so wild that this show is up there with the top Netflix shows of all time, like Bridgerton, Stranger Things, The Witcher, and more.

The Korean Netflix original drama is about as must-watch as it gets for Netflix shows. Not only is this series amazing, but it’s been the talk of the world. You just have to check it out if you haven’t seen it yet. You definitely won’t regret it!

The series follows a group of more than 400 people who are competing in a very violent competition for millions! Everything might not be as it seems.

No spoilers from us, but there’s definitely potential for an even better season 2. Netflix officially renewed Squid Game for season 2 and the new season is set to be released on Netflix in 2024.
