Netflix says ‘Squid Game’ could become its biggest hit show of all time

28 September, 2021

A new Korean-language Netflix series could become the streamer’s biggest series of all time.

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos said during the annual Code Conference on Monday that “Squid Game,” which premiered September 17, will “definitely” be the company’s biggest non-English series of all time. That would put it ahead of its Spanish series “Money Heist,” the fourth season of which is Netflix’s sixth biggest debut ever with 65 million households worldwide watching in the first 28 days of its release.

Sarandos added that there’s “a very good chance it’s going to be our biggest show ever,” referring to “Squid Game.”
