Squid Game is officially the biggest Netflix show of all time. Fans watched more than 1.6 billion hours of Squid Game in its first 28 days on Netflix, according to the streaming network. If that wasn’t enough to get this show on the list of the best shows on Netflix, I don’t know what would!

Squid Game is a riveting, must-watch Netflix original series. The Korean series tells the story of 456 contestants who are chosen to compete in a series of kids games for millions of dollars. Many of these people have massive debts. The kicker is that these games are life or death. You win and move on to the next round, or you die. There’s no getting out.

You just have to see how the first season ends!

As of right now, Squid Game season 2 has been confirmed to be in the works, but it might be a bit of a wait before a new season is released. Squid Game season 2 will be filmed in 2023. What’s unclear is if we could see the season this year or if we’ll be waiting until 2024 or, gulp, beyond that for the new season.
