In today’s interesting and exciting news, Netflix is developing a real Squid Game (without killing of course). Yes, you read that correctly. Soon, people from all over the world will have the opportunity to compete Squid Game: The Challengean intense reality competition series where contestants can win a massive cash prize.
How big are we talking right now? According to Netflix’s press release, the cash prize will be the largest flat-rate cash prize in reality television history — a staggering $4.56 million.
Squid Game Fans know that the number “456” is full of meaning, so it’s fitting that it would correlate with the cash prize and the number of players participating. Yes, the competition show will feature 456 real players! So not only will Netflix have a historic cash prize, but a truly historic cast, the largest cast in reality TV.
The games are inspired by the show with some new additions. People can strategize and form alliances, but be prepared to test yourself as competitors are eliminated one by one.
For those just interested in watching the game and not participating, the reality show will be shown on Netflix. The production should be interesting as 456 people isn’t an easy amount to keep track of. The cameras have to try to film as much as possible as they don’t know who will be eliminated and who will not.
The 10-part competition series is a co-production of Studio Lambert (The circle) and The Garden (24 hour emergency room), part of ITV Studios, and it is filmed in the UK.
How to register for Squid Game: The Challenge?
If you are interested in becoming a contestant on the show, you can apply to SquidGameCasting.com for recruitment. The frontman is looking for English speaking voice talents from all parts of the world.
It’s interesting that Netflix states that this is only for “this round” as it sounds like they might already be considering additional seasons or spin-offs.
Of course, this news comes just a day after Netflix officially renewed the series for a second season. It’s been pretty much confirmed before, but it was nice to get the official news. It’s really no surprise when you think about it Squid Game is Netflix’s most popular series of all time with 1.65 billion hours watched within the first 28 days of its September 2021 premiere.
The whole thing is quite ironic considering the actual nature of the television show. Even the creator of the show is developing a satirical project based on the success of Squid Gamehis take on capitalism and the somehow dark, voyeuristic tendency it shows in all of us, but I digress.
