Netflix is going all out on Squid Game, with the streaming company announcing that a second season of the hit show is on the way, along with a reality TV show based on the series.
Squid Game was one of the biggest, if not the biggest, series to ever come to Netflix, and the streaming company seems set to fully capitalize on the show’s popularity by releasing a second season and giving people the opportunity to compete for money in a manner similar to characters on the show. The next reality show will be a 10-episode series called Squid Game: The Challenge and will feature games that are “inspiredby the events that unfold in the show.
Much like the Squid Game series, contestants will be competing for a multi-million dollar prize pool which will be an astonishing $4.56 million, which appears to be a reference to the number assigned to the main character – 456. Notably, Netflix has already begun to launch efforts as the streaming platform recruits English-speaking candidates from around the world. Filming will take place in the UK and, according to Netflix, contestants will be expected to film for around four weeks throughout 2023.
