Even if you haven’t watched the show or seen the memes taking over the internet – chances are you’ve probably heard of Squid Game.
Everyone has been talking about the hyper-violent thriller that has become a massive hit ever since it launched on Netflix.
In fact, the Korean series – centred on a brutal survival game – is on its way to beating Regency-era romance Bridgerton to become the streaming platform’s biggest original series of all time.
Already, it is Netflix’s biggest non-English language series, surpassing the likes of Spanish thriller Money Heist and French mystery series Lupin.
In Squid Game, desperate contestants play a series of children’s games in hopes of walking away with a massive cash prize – but with deadly consequences.
Despite the hype, the show’s director Hwang Dong-hyuk has said he hasn’t fully confirmed plans for a second season.
