Have you ever wanted to play Squid Game (without any of the penalties of course)? You’re now in luck.

Squid Game has become one of the biggest shows in the world and it was recently announced a season two was coming to Netflix. That’s not all though. The streaming platform is also looking for fans to enter the game for a huge cash prize. Go big or go home, right?

Squid Game: The Challenge is set to produce the largest cash prize in reality television history, sitting at a cool $4.56 million. The show will feature 456 real players entering the game in pursuit of the gigantic cash prize.

The ten-part competition will show contestants battling through a set of games inspired by the original Korean drama, along with a few new surprises they have in store. The game will involve a lot of strategy and alliances to avoid getting eliminated. Netflix also added the disclaimer that there is no penalty of death in this game.

Brandon Riegg, Netflix vice president of unscripted and documentary series, said: “Squid Game took the world by storm with Director Hwang’s captivating story and iconic imagery. We’re grateful for his support as we turn the fictional world into reality in this massive competition and social experiment.

“Fans of the drama series are in for a fascinating and unpredictable journey as our 456 real-world contestants navigate the biggest competition series ever, full of tension and twists, with the biggest ever cash prize at the end.”
