Netflix’s Squid Game has taken the world by storm, as it has now become the streaming platform’s most successful show yet. It was also said that Netflix paid $21.4 million for Squid GameBeing a big trending topic right now, it was certain the show was going to get parodied. Now it seems the series has been streamed for a ridiculous amount of time.

The South Korean survival drama has grossed more views than 111 million views already. Just a few days after becoming the biggest show on Netflix, the show earned almost $900 million for Netflix. It even had a council in English concerned recently.

As reported earlier, the show’s massive success and demand led to internet service providers demanding more money. This was due to a higher rate of bandwidth consumption. As expected, their demands were met with ridicule.

According to The Hollywood Reporter,  Squid Game has now drawn 1.91 billion minutes of viewing time. These ridiculous numbers show an increase of over nine times from its previous week of streaming.

The show managed to far surpass Bridgerton to become the biggest launch for a new show on the platform. Bridgerton had 82 million first-month viewers after it launched last year. Squid Game has become a global phenomenon and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
