- The Netflix series “Squid Game” not only gets a second season.
- The streaming service has now also announced a reality show of the hit series.
- Whoever is left at the end gets $4.5 million.
Nobody should die here, but a new format based on the Netflix hit “Squid Game” promises high tension. The streaming service turns the mega-success into a reality competition. 456 real people will rise to the challenge in “Squid Game: The Challenge”. Whoever is left at the end gets 4.56 million US dollars, the equivalent of almost 4.4 million euros.
According to Netflix, it is said to be the reality show with the most participants that has ever made it onto the TV screen or is creating. There has also never been such a high prize money. New games inspired by the template are waiting for the opponents in ten episodes.
Casting for “Squid Game: The Challenge” is already underway
The casting for candidates has already started. Apparently anyone who speaks English, is at least 21 years old and has time for the filming can apply on the “squidgamecasting.com” website. These are expected to take place in early 2023 and can apparently last up to four weeks.
It is not yet clear whether eliminated participants may face a special penalty. A defeat will at least not cost the candidates their lives as in the template. The application website assures that “all players will escape unharmed”.
