Squid Game Reality TV Show Gets The Greenlight At Netflix


It’s been revealed that a new reality TV show based on the Squid Game series has just got the greenlight over at Netflix.

According to Deadline, the dystopian Korean drama series that ended up becoming their biggest series ever is going to be turned into a reality competition series with 456 all taking part.

I’m hoping that they all, bar one, won’t end up being killed off in this new show.

Netflix has reportedly ordered ten episodes of this new series, which is being called Squid Game: The Challenge.

It will consist of English-language speakers that will be taken from around the world.

It’s also been revealed that the winner of the show will come away with a whopping $4.56 million cash prize.

This will be the largest cash prize for any reality TV show done before.

Honestly, I’m not too sure about this idea.

It does sound like fun, but money makes people do some very strange and horrible things.

I’m hoping that there doesn’t end up being some awful kind of drama surrounding this series.

When so much money is on the table, people will do anything.

This all comes after it was finally confirmed by Netflix that Squid Game Season 2 is in the works.

It should be coming to Netflix at some point in 2023 or maybe early 2024.
