Let’s Take A Look At “Arcane: League Of Legends” — The Series That Dethroned “Squid Game” From Netflix’s #1 Spot

There’s some fierce competition happening in the Netflix sphere.

Netflix‘s Squid Game has been reigning supreme at the number 1 spot on the streaming platform ever since its premiere. The series was released back on September 17, which means that the K-Drama has been sitting in the first place spot for a whopping 47 days.

And as the hype of the dystopian thriller series inevitably dies down over time, the public began to wonder what show would eventually take Squid Game‘s highly coveted number 1 spot on Netflix’s “top series” list—and it looks like we have a winner.
