Squid Game continuously proves that a series' language cannot affect its potential and beauty.
Nearly two weeks since Squid Game bombarded Netflix's viewers with an exciting and unique plot, the Korean series is reportedly slated to be the new "Biggest Show" in history.
The streaming giant cannot estimate the series current sales as Netflix traditionally ranks series in the first 28 days of release. Although Squid Game is yet to reach the first half of the given time, the series already prepares to dethrone the most prominent titles yet.
Squid Game Can Potentially Beat Bridgerton and Money Heist
During the annual Code Conference on Monday, Netflix's co-CEO excitingly warned how the Korean series got the power to oust the current biggest titles the streaming site has. He predicted that Squid Game would unquestionably become its most extensive non-English series of all time.
According to Netflix's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, the high-concept Korean survival drama poses to become the largest Netflix show ever, and its current No. 1 rank worldwide assures them even more.
As of the writing, the series has a 100 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and an 87 percent approval rating from 540 users.
Aside from beating Bridgerton, Squid Game will highly likely beat the Spanish hit series Money Heist. For what it's worth, the drama's Season 4 is currently Netflix's sixth-biggest debut yet after 65 million households tuned in during the first 28 days since its arrival.
Meanwhile, Bridgerton — the current most extensive series — earned 82 million household views during its first month.
Once Squid Game dethrones Bridgerton, it would also overthrow the other most popular TV series, including Lupin: Part 1 (76M), The Witcher Season 1 (76M), Sex/Life Season 1 (67M), and Stranger Things 3 (67M).
"We're trying to be more transparent with the market, with the talent, with everybody," Sarandos said during the conference.
Squid GameBreaking Records Already
While waiting for the official tally of Netflix, Squid Game successfully became the first Korean series to reach No. 1 on the U.S. Top 10 list. It rose the non-English-language viewing in the country by 71 percent.
Since September 21, it has been staying on top, outshining other series.
