Brandon Riegg, vice president of non-fiction series at Netflix, commented that they are very excited to continue the Squid Game franchise with their team in Korea and producers Studio Lambert and The Garden. “There was no red light in our decision to greenlight the second season of Squid Game: The Challenge, the most ambitious unscripted show we’ve ever released on Netflix,” he noted.

The 10-episode series features 456 actual players competing for a $4.56 million prize, which could change their lives. The competition includes a series of games inspired by the original show and some new and unexpected challenges. As players fight to survive elimination, they must test their strategies, form alliances, and showcase their personalities.

The format is inspired by the hit South Korean series The Squid Game, a worldwide phenomenon in 2021. In the tense drama starring Lee Jung Jae, 456 contestants are pitted against each other in a childish game show scheme that can lead to death at any moment and where the winner can win a million-dollar cash prize. In the case of reality shows, they are adopted without fatal outcomes other than the loss of the chance to win a juicy dollar prize.
