Physical: 100 viewers really can't believe that Netflix hasn't announced a renewal for their hit reality survival series.

By all accounts, the action-packed series has been a huge success. Since its debut in January, Physical: 100 has been among the top 10 most-streamed Non-English TV series on Netflix. Last week (February 6 to February 12), it claimed the No. 1 Global spot, with a total of 41,610,000 hours viewed worldwide. In the same week, it reached the number two slot (behind You season 4) in the UK, and reached number seven in the States for top TV shows. 

If you've somehow not heard of the show already, Physical: 100 is a Korean Netflix original that pits 100 stars from all sorts of athletic backgrounds, age ranges, professions, and walks of life against one another in a Squid Game-esque elimination game (not to be confused with Squid Game: The Challenge, Netflix's real-life version of the hit Korean drama).

Across the series, our Physical: 100 contestants have come up against a whole host of tough trials that have tested their willpower, strength, dexterity, and endurance, all with the aim of whittling the group down to one person with the ultimate physique. If you've been watching along, you'll no doubt be waiting to see who our final five contestants will be, and which one of them will be walking away with Physical: 100's staggering cash prize when the first series comes to an end. 

With so many viewers hooked in and the final episode just days away, it's no surprise that fans are calling on the streaming service to announce whether there's going to be another series.
