Netflix is planning a real-life Squid Game reality show with a prize pool of $4.56 million.



Netflix is looking for contestants for a reality TV program based on its most popular series, Squid Game.

It will not, however, be a life or death situation, as shown in the South Korean dystopian drama.

Instead, 456 recruits from all around the world will compete in games where “the worst fate is going home empty-handed” and missing out on a prize pool of $4.56 million (£3.8 million).

Earlier this week, Netflix confirmed that the popular series would be renewed for a second season.

The platform claimed on Wednesday that Squid Game: The Challenge, a 10-episode series, will have the “biggest cast and lump cash reward in reality TV history.”

“As [players] compete in a variety of games inspired by the original program – plus some surprising new additions – their plans, alliances, and character will be put to the test as competitors are removed around them,” the statement continued.

Participants must be at least 21 years old to participate. They must be able to communicate in English and be ready for filming for up to four weeks in early 2023.

The 456 participants are a reference to the fictitious series with the same number of characters, with Seong Gi-hun, the primary protagonist, also referred to as Player 456.
