Upcoming ‘Squid Game’ Reality Show Heading to Netflix Soon

Prepare for the live ‘Squid Game’ on Netflix

Netflix is gearing up to unveil Squid Game: The Challenge, a reality competition series inspired by the popular Korean drama Squid Game. The streaming giant dropped a tantalizing teaser trailer, giving fans a sneak peek into what lies ahead in this much-anticipated show, scheduled to premiere in November.

var pref_connatix_event_title_prefix = ‘ConnatixLarge’;var prefMainPlayer=pref_connatix_event_title_prefix;var pref_connatix_catapultx_id = ‘tdw-main-player’;

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=”https://cd.connatix.com/connatix.playspace.js”,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {
cnxps({
playerId: getUrsCtxStoryPlayer() ,”customParam1″:getUrsPI(),”customParam2″:getUrsSTI(),”customParam3″:”ConnatixMain”,settings: {queryJsTargeting:{apsTargetingKey:getUrsTI().split(‘_’).slice(0,1).join(‘_’).toLowerCase()},advertising: {macros: {“CustomMacro1″:getUrsPI(),”CustomMacro2″:getUrsSTI(),”CustomMacro3″:”ConnatixMain”}}}
}).render(‘307852102563439fa7d193066a4208a5’,connatix_js_ready_callback);
});

While details on the challenges contestants will face are scarce in the teaser, one thing is certain: Netflix is striving to capture the same essence found in the original Squid Game. The iconic “red light, green light” doll makes an appearance, albeit without the intense violence that defined the series.

Squid Game: The Challenge will see a whopping 456 competitors in 10 episodes, drawing inspiration from the original while introducing fresh and thrilling elements specific to the show. The grand prize awaiting the victor is a monumental $4.56 million, ensuring fierce determination among participants until the very end. Filming for the show wrapped up earlier this year, promising viewers a heart-pounding and immersive experience.

The rationale behind creating Squid Game: The Challenge is crystal clear—it’s a strategic maneuver by Netflix to capitalize on the massive success of Squid Game. The Korean drama has cemented its place as one of Netflix’s top shows ever, amassing a staggering 1.6 billion viewing hours as of June, surpassing the likes of Stranger Things season 4 which clocked over 1.3 billion viewing hours.

As we inch closer to November, fans eagerly anticipate the arrival of Squid Game: The Challenge. With its immersive and competitive appeal, this reality showdown vows to enthrall audiences, keeping them at the edge of their seats.
