The time spent watching the South Korean hit show equals to about 182,000 years. That's time well spent in our opinion.

New figures released by Netflix show that the show has 2.6 times the viewing figures to the closest competitor 'Bridgerton', which generated 625 million hours.

In October, Netflix said a "mind-boggling" 142 million accounts sampled at least two minutes of 'Squid Game' in that first month. To put that in context, that's two out of every three Netflix subscribers globally.

As part of its expanded Weekly Top 10 lists, Netflix included its rankings amongst English and non-English titles. The company is also making its data more available on, where it will update regularly.

The streaming platform is also using new measurement statistics for its shows. As opposed to how it used to measure, by counting everyone who stream at least two minutes of a show, Netflix now goes by total hours viewed over a specific time period. That will supposedly give us more of an indication on viewer engagement.

The show's popularity has been consistent since its release. It has stayed number one in the Top 10 non-English charts for nine weeks in a row.

'Squid Game' has not been officially renewed for a second season, however last week, series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed season two will be happening.

"There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice!" Hwang said.
