The Squid Game is a few days away from its first month in the streaming service’s catalog Netflix and incredibly it continues as the most viewed in the whole world. The success of the series is already a fact after the figures that positioned it as the largest premiere in the history of the platform have been made official. However, one question remained and we can now answer it: How much money was spent?
Although it was already surpassed in various countries, such as in Mexico by a Marvel movie, the furor seems to be far from over and everything indicates that for this October 17, 30 days after its release, it will remain at the top. This led the Korean program to establish itself as the most watched of all with 111 million households that played it, surpassing the 82 million it had obtained Bridgerton.
+ How much did Netflix spend on The Squid Game?
According to what was reported by Lucas Shaw from Bloomberg, based on internal documents, Netflix spent a total of $ 21.4 million on The Squid Game. The unprecedented success of South Korea in music, television and film has led streaming to bet on content from the region and the move has been truly successful.
Only that money mentioned was the one they disbursed for the realization of the nine episodes, something that sounds unusual just by looking at the cost of other hits that make up the catalog. For example, programs like Stranger Things and The Crown came to cost between $ 8 and $ 10 million per episode. Not to mention that none of the shows are in the Top 5 of the most viewed on the platform.
Other examples to make clear how profitable the series has been for Netflix, we tell you that WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier of Disney + have cost up to $ 25 million per episode. The Mandalorian spent close to $ 15 million per chapter. The Morning Show Apple cost $ 300 million for two seasons. And finally, the series of The Lord of the rings Amazon Prime had a budget of $ 465 million.
