According to figures recently released by Netflix, after just two weeks of availability is now the fifth most popular non-English Netflix drama of all time. With over 236 million hours logged by viewers from January 31st to February 6th, on top of the over 124 million hours logged from the week of January 24th to January 30th. The final total, of well over 360 million hours logged and climbing, is easily outperforming all other recent Netflix dramas, including English-language ones.
The all-time leader for Netflix dramas, both English and non-English, is “Squid Game” with 1.65 billion hours logged. The second through fourth place spots are all held by the 4th, 3rd, and 5th seasons of Money Heist respectively, with 610 million hours, 420 million hours, and 390 million hours respectively. “All of Us Are Dead” may well have already ascended to the fourth place spot pending official figures, and possibly even higher than that once next week’s full figures are unveiled.
