The hit series “Squid Game” from South Korea is being implemented as a reality show on the streaming service Netflix.
As in the thriller series, 456 participants will compete against each other in different games, as Netflix announced yesterday in a first trailer for “Squid Game: The Challenge”.
Accordingly, it is about a prize money of 4.56 million US dollars (4.36 million euros). According to Netflix, there has never been a show with more participants or with higher prize money.
Interested parties from all over the world who speak English can therefore apply online to take part with immediate effect. Filming is expected to take place in early 2023. However, the game show should not be as risky as the games in the series.
“The stakes are high, but the worst fate in this game is going home empty-handed,” the website reads.
In the Squid Game series, hundreds of highly indebted people compete in children’s games to win millions in prize money. Losers are killed instantly in the macabre competition. The series also led to criticism in this country. Netflix has already announced a second season.
