After its premiere in September 2021, “Squid Game” has become the biggest show on Netflix.
Titled “Squid Game: The Challenge,” Netflix will turn its biggest show into the biggest and highest-paid reality show of all time.
The show will have 456 contestants face off against more than 10 episodes to win the grand prize of $4.56 million — similar to the original “Squid Game” prize of 45.6 billion won.
Contestants will participate in children’s games featured in the “Squid Game” as well as new games added by Netflix.
Anyone from across the English-speaking world is welcome to enter the competition.
Unlike the fatal consequences of the original series, in this reality show everyone who doesn’t win will just go home empty-handed.
