Arcane Beats Squid Game Again to Become #1 Show on Netflix Worldwide With Act 2

When Riot Games released Act 1 (episodes 1-3) of its League of Legends animated series Arcane on Netflix last week, the show was showered with praises from both fans and critics.

While Act 1 of the show reached No. 1 on the global Netflix TV charts with 38 No. 1 rankings in individual countries, Act 2 has shown more momentum.
