Netflix has announced that it is looking for 456 players to join “Squid Game: The Challenge,” a reality competition series hosted by the video streaming service.
According to Netflix, participants will compete through “a series of games inspired by the original show” and “surprising new additions.” The players’ “strategies, alliances, and character” will be tested while competitors are eliminated around them.
The competition will see players compete for the prize money, which is a massive USD 4.56 million (~ PHP 240 million). This will be the largest cast in the history of reality television, and the competition is open to English speakers worldwide.
The announcement of the 10-episode “Squid Game: The Challenge,” which will be filmed in the United Kingdom sometime in 2023, came after Squid Game was officially renewed for Season 2. Check out how to apply for the competition below.
