Netflix is gearing up for a thrilling new show that’s bound to keep you on the edge of your seat. Say hello to Squid Game: The Challenge, a reality competition based on the South Korean 2021 cult series, Squid Game.
The official trailer has just dropped, and it’s every bit as suspenseful as the TV series.
In this show, 456 real contestants are ready to battle it out for an eye-popping $4.56 million prize, making it the largest cash reward in reality TV history. The trailer gives us a sneak peek into the iconic games we loved from the original series, like “Red Light, Green Light,” complete with the creepy robot doll, along with the heart-pounding glass bridge, honeycomb, and marble games.

These brave contestants will face not only the classic challenges but also some surprising new twists. Their strategies, alliances, and true characters will be put to the test, and as the competition intensifies, contestants will be eliminated one by one.
Produced by Studio Lambert and The Garden, the show boasts an impressive team of executive producers.
Now, there have been some controversies surrounding the show, with former players claiming it’s “rigged.” During filming in the U.K., the “Red Light, Green Light” game was reportedly played in freezing conditions, leading to some health concerns. Netflix and the production team have defended the show’s fairness and safety measures, including an “independent adjudicator” to ensure fair play.
So, get ready for a rollercoaster of excitement and suspense when Squid Game: The Challenge is set to hit Netflix on November 22, and you can catch new episodes every week until December 6.
It’s a showdown like no other, and you won’t want to miss it!
