The hit South Korean series The Squid Game, which captivated hundreds of Netflix viewers throughout 2021, has moved from fiction to reality. A year ago, it became known that the platform was inspired by a terrible story to create a reality show. Now it finally became known in which month this film will be available for viewing.

The project arose as a result of the streamer’s priority to get the most out of the series: at a time when the number of its subscribers was decreasing.

According to Deadline, “The Squid Game: The Challenge” will consist of 10 episodes, where 456 contestants from around the world will compete for $4.56 million, the largest prize in the history of a reality show of this type. .

The dynamic is inspired by the games we’ve seen in the series, although it’s clear that losing won’t have a catastrophic ending.

“There will also be amazing new additions, your strategies, alliances and character will be put to the test as the competition is eliminated around you. The stakes are high, but in this game, the worst fate is to go home empty-handed,” Netflix said in a statement.

When can you see The Squid Game: The Challenge on Netflix?

While the exact day when “The Squid Game: The Challenge” will be available on the platform is still unknown, Netflix has said that it will be in November, which is when fans should be on the lookout.

At the beginning of 2023, the first chapters began to be recorded, even the media reported that some participants sought medical help during the popular game “green light, red light”.

“Variety” explained that the incidents occurred due to the low temperatures in Great Britain, where the reality show is being recorded, and one person was allegedly injured due to the collision of the shoulder with the wall, while others received minor injuries.

Although the English media indicated that the person was carried out on a stretcher, Netflix denied this situation and stated that everything is fine with the competitors.

“We care about the health and safety of the cast and crew, and we have all the appropriate safety procedures in place. Although it is very cold on the set – and the participants were prepared for it – reports of serious injuries are false,” the company told the magazine.
