Netflix’s new fantasy horror series Hellbound has surpassed Squid Game as the streaming platform’s current most popular series on a global level, reports  Independent.

According to data by analytics company FlixPatrol, Hellbound was the most popular series on Netflix on 20 November, surpassing Squid Game in more than 80 countries within 24 hours of the show’s release.

Directed by Train to Busan’s Yeon Sang-ho, Hellbound premiered at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival in September.
