‘Squid game’ to soon turn into a reality game; Netflix plans a reality show with the biggest cash prize in TV history

Video streaming platform Netflix has planned to conduct “its biggest reality competition ever” called “Squid Game: The Challenge. Squid Game is one of Netflix’s most-watched fiction television series but it longer not be just a television series but will become a reality show, announced Netflix. The 10-episode reality competition will include games inspired by the original show, as well as new additions, Netflix said.

Squid Game was released in September 2021 which then became the most-watched series on Netflix because it told the story of cashless contestants playing childhood games for a chance to earn life-changing money.

Fans of the popular television series go thrilled after hearing the news about Netflix’s plan to make it a reality show, but there are concerns about making the series a reality show. Unlike the series where the stakes are life or death, the worst possible fate in this 456-player competition will be leaving without the $4.56 million winnings, which Netflix claims are the largest lump sum prize in reality TV history.

Recruitment is open now at SquidGameCasting.com. Netflix’s reality show will be filmed in the UK and is currently only casting English speakers for the contest. The announcement comes just days after the scripted series was renewed for a second season,”  said Netflix’s Head of Global TV, Bela Bajaria.
