Netflix has just given the green light for a new reality television series – Squid Game: The Challenge. Based on the hit South Korean thriller Squid Game, the game show will see 456 players from all over the world duking it out for a massive $4.56 million cash prize.

And no, there won't be gruesome killings in the reality series – the worst that could happen is walking away empty-handed. But Netflix has promised 10 episodes of games inspired by the original show, "plus surprising new additions", as well as strategies, alliances, and tests of character. 

If you think you stand a chance, then you can sign yourself up at Some eligibility criteria: you have to be 21 years old and above, English-speaking, and able to commit up to four weeks in early 2023 to film the show. 

The original Squid Game is currently Netflix's most popular series ever, racking up over 1.65 billion view hours in the first 28 days of its premiere. 

If you were one of the many who were drawn in by its life and death trials, moral dilemmas, and sentimental beats, then you'll be glad to know that Squid Game has been officially renewed for a second season too.
