Netflix New Squid Game: The Challenge, a 10-episode new Reality series, will be the biggest ever show the streaming platform announced. The show, which is based on the company’s most famous series, Squid Game, would include the “biggest cast and a cash prize of $4.5 Million in reality TV history.”
Netflix revealed, the new 10-episode reality competition will have games inspired by the original show as well as new innovations.
MrBeast, one of YouTube’s most popular US producers, created an unofficial version of this concept by reproducing elements of the South Korean drama’s set and hosting games from the show, such as “Red Light, Green Light.”
The YouTuber also skipped the killing part, instead strapping a device on each of the 456 participants that simulated a gunshot shot when a player was eliminated.
The reality show will be filmed in the United Kingdom, and only English speakers are presently being cast. The news comes only days after the scripted series was given a second season renewal.
Netflix New Squid Game: The Challenge will carry a prize money of $4.5 Million
It was dubbed the “largest reality competition ever” by Netflix. Unlike the Korean dystopian drama, the new reality show Squid Game The Challenge will not be a life or death situation. 456 candidates from all around the world will compete in games for a chance to win or’miss out’ on a $4.56 million prize pool.
Players will compete through a series of games inspired by the original show – plus surprising new additions, Netflix announced on Tuesday. The player’s ‘strategies, alliances, and character’ will be put to the test, while competitors are eliminated around them.
Earlier in June, Netflix also confirmed that the popular Korean series Squid Game would be renewed for a second season. The show saw contestants from different backgrounds compete by playing childhood games for a chance to win a huge cash prize. After releasing in September 2021, it became the streaming platform’s most-watched series.
The first season holds the record as Netflix’s most popular series of all time, with over 1.65 billion hours viewed in its first 28 days, the company said.
