Squid Game has become Netflix’s biggest series launch ever, surpassing Bridgerton, reports Deadline. According to Netflix, the dystopian South Korean action drama has drawn in 111 million viewers in its first 28 days, surpassing Bridgerton‘s 82 million. Keep in mind that Netflix counts any viewing of at least two minutes in these figures.

The show has become a global hit and quickly became the #1 show on Netflix in 90 countries after it debuted last month, thanks in part to Netflix’s worldwide strategy of subtitling and dubbing the show into over 30 languages.

After Bridgerton at 82 million, Part 1 of the French series Lupin and Season 1 of The Witcher are both at 76 million. Sex/Life Season 1 and Stranger Things Season 3 both hit 67 million, followed by Money Heist Part 4 at 65 million, Tiger King at 64 million, The Queen’s Gambit at 62 million, Sweet Tooth at 60 million, and Emily In Paris Season 1 at 58 million.

In terms of movies on Netflix, Extraction is currently #1 with 99 million, followed by Bird Box at 89 million.
