Another South Korean fantasy horror series from Netflix became a global phenomenon overnight, with Hellbound overthrowing Squid Game as the most-watched TV show on the streaming platform.

According to FlixPatrol analyzes, Hellbound became the world’s most watched Netflix TV series on November 20, surpassing streaming ratings in more than 80 countries within 24 hours of the show starting.

The series centers on the graphically violent actions of a team of demons, who hunt down sinners who have already been visited by a celestial being who informed the victim of the date and time of their death.

The giant hairy creatures cremate their victims and send them to hell, causing an explosion of public hysteria and religious fanaticism.

The series’ pilot, directed by Yeon Sang-ho, premiered at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Squid Game, which premiered on September 19, spent 46 non-consecutive days in first place.

An estimated 142 million households in 94 countries watched the series, also known for its ultra-violence and gore, in October. It generated an estimated profit of $ 900 million for Netflix.

Earlier this month, Squid Game director Hwang Dong-hyuk said a second season of Squid Game is on the way.

“I am currently in the planning process. I think it’s too early to tell when and how [season two is] is going to happen, ”he said.
