Netflix Inc’s most-watched series is no longer a fake television programme, according to the streaming service’s approval of “its greatest reality competition ever,” “Squid Game: The Challenge.”
There is no death or destruction in this 456-player game; the worst potential outcome is losing $4.56 million, the greatest lump sum reward in reality television history.
“Squid Game” became Netflix’s most-watched series when it premiered in September 2021 because it featured cash-strapped participants competing to win life-changing amounts of money by reliving their childhood games.
Over 1.65 billion hours were seen in the first 28 days of the show’s release, making it Netflix’s most popular series of all time.
Netflix has announced that the 10-episode reality competition would have games based on the original programme and new ones.
“Red Light, Green Light” is a game featured in the South Korean drama that MrBeast recreated and hosted on his YouTube channel, which is one of the top U.S. YouTubers. When a player was eliminated, they affixed a gadget that simulated a gunshot shot to each of the 456 participants.
Netflix’s reality programme will be recorded in the United Kingdom, but only native English speakers are considered for the part of the cast. As of this writing, the show has already been renewed for a second season.
