The show would create nearly $900 million in value for the streaming giant, according to leaked estimates.

The popularity of the show hasn't translated to a huge increase in subscribers. In the quarter Squid Game was released, there were just 70,000 net subscribers from the U.S. and Canada. The company's fourth-quarter earnings report, which showed a continued dip in subscriber growth compared to its early-pandemic success, contributed to a 20% drop in its stock price in after-hours trading Thursday.

He told the AP that it was too early to say when and how the show would be released.
