Extracted from “The Hunger Games” and “Fly Lord”, “Squid Games” is centered around 456 contestants who can win big prizes after successfully completing a series of children’s games. The catch is that if they lose, they die.
“Squid Game” is the first Netflix show to reach over 100 million viewers in a month. The second watched series, Bridgerton, had 82 million viewers.
Netflix’s success in “squid games” can be seen as an effort for streaming services to expand their global reach.
“Squid games” are also a hot topic on social media. Users sampled parts of the series with different memes and mentioned one of the popular games where players need to “poke” shapes from a honeycomb-like mixture.
