Is it On-Track to Beat ‘Squid Game’ in Netflix’s History?

However, it still trails behind the famous Korean action drama, “Squid Game,” which attained the top global viewership for Netflix and recorded more than 1 billion viewership hours on the platform. “Squid Game” is still the most historical title on Netflix, and it is only beginning, gearing up for its upcoming Season 2 in the coming years.

“Stranger Things” is a massive contender for “Squid Game,” but it did not yet beat that of the Korean drama show on the platform. Nevertheless (SPOILER ALERT), it seems that it would repeat history when it gears up for Season 5, which is allegedly coming in 2024. 

Netflix: Is it Recovering from its Losses?

Netflix is still one of the top streaming platforms today. Still, it experienced a massive decline in its subscriptions and users as there are other places to watch with different titles. Nevertheless, one of its saving graces is “Stranger Things,” which recently released its latest season, bringing massive additions to its plot.

Some of the series in the streaming platform brings a massive following in the world, and the company thrives from it as they are “on-demand” or available on their servers for all to rewatch or start watching. Despite being late in the trend, people may still catch up, and a lot has transitioned to real-life events.

“Squid Game” became a reality show for people to compete in, but in real life, it does not involve all the brutal killings of the players, only eliminations. ‘

The company got massive numbers back again for “Stranger Things,” and it may be its way to recover from its losses, being a strategic release in the right place and time for Netflix. Nevertheless, it brought significant viewership for the company that may be a way for them to bring back the old glory that is Netflix’s top spot in the industry.
