Last year Netflix announced a reality show based on the popular Squid Game TV show. Netflix says this will be the largest largest cast and lump sum cash prize in reality TV history, 456 players who will fight for a life-changing reward of $4.56 million. As they compete through a series of games inspired by the original show – plus surprising new additions. Now Netflix has announced the show will be released in November and even has released a short trailer.
Here is the trailer that Netflix released today for the new Squid Game reality show The Challenge.
“Squid Game took the world by storm with Director Hwang’s captivating story and iconic imagery. We’re grateful for his support as we turn the fictional world into reality in this massive competition and social experiment,” said Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of Unscripted and Documentary Series. “Fans of the drama series are in for a fascinating and unpredictable journey as our 456 real world contestants navigate the biggest competition series ever, full of tension and twists, with the biggest ever cash prize at the end.”
The reality show will offer 10-episode competition series. The scripted drama Squid Game holds the record as Netflix’s most popular series of all time, with over 1.65 billion view hours in the first 28 days after its September 2021 premiere.
On June 12, 2022, Squid Game was officially renewed for season 2 as Netflix and Director Hwang confirmed they will once again team up for a whole new round.
