Squid Game Netflix reality TV show: games, prize

The competition will feature games that are inspired by the challenges Seong Gi Hun and his fellow players faced in Squid Game. While Netflix has yet to reveal the actual obstacles, it’s hard to imagine that iconic games from the TV show such as the Red Light, Green Light, Sugar Honeycombs, and of course, the actual Squid Game, will not be included.

However, Netflix also teased audiences and potential participants that there will be “surprising new additions”.

Aspiring participants need to submit a no-filter one-minute video to introduce themselves, share the reason why they want to play the Squid Game, what their game plan would be and what they will do with the cash prize if they won.

The filming is slated to take place over the course of four weeks in early 2023 so you have to make certain arrangements if you get picked.
