After the dystopian thriller grabbed the world by storm last year, Netflix is expanding the Squid Game brand to include a reality TV series.
The streaming service said that Hwang Dong-show hyuk's would be renewed for a second season, following its worldwide success.
Squid Game's first season showed a group of cash-strapped individuals participating in warped versions of children's games for a chance to be the last person standing and win a life-changing cash reward.
With over 1.65 billion views in the first 28 days after its premiere in September 2021, the series is presently Netflix's most popular title ever.
Netflix has now announced the launch of Squid Game: The Challenge, in which 456 contestants will participate in a variety of games inspired by the show for a chance to win a $4.56 million cash reward - the highest lumpsum jackpot in reality television history.
Losing a round, on the other hand, will not result in death, according to the series' creator. Instead, the worst thing that can happen to a participant is to go home empty-handed.
