Squid Game exploded onto the TV scene in September 2021, with the first season eventually becoming the most-watched season of television in Netflix history with over 2.2 billion hours viewed, equating to 265.2 million views for the series. The show netted 14 Emmy nominations for Season 1. It ultimately won six, including a historic win for Lee in the best actor in a drama category.
