Netflix has taken the world by storm with its South Korean survival series, Squid Game, and now, it’s transforming the concept into an exciting reality show. Recently, the streaming giant unveiled a gripping trailer for this competitive series, sending fans into a frenzy of anticipation.
On Monday, Netflix unveiled the much-anticipated trailer for the reality show inspired by its wildly successful South Korean series, Squid Game. The trailer offers a sneak peek into the world of 456 contestants vying for a hefty cash prize of $4.56 million. Just like in the original series, participants don the iconic green sweatsuits and white shoes and engage in a series of challenging games, with the goal of being the last one standing.
However, unlike the deadly games in the original Squid Game, the reality show offers a unique twist. For example, while the infamous “red light, green light” game in the series led to players being eliminated, the trailer indicates that in this show, those caught moving will face a different consequence – they will be shot with black ink. Netflix aptly captioned the trailer with, “Make friends. Make enemies. Make millions. Squid Game: The Challenge, the competition series based on our biggest show ever, premieres November 22.”
Fans expressed their excitement in the comment section, with one user remarking, “This looks even better than I ever imagined.” Another fan enthusiastically commented, “Oh man, this looks good.” There was even a sense of fear and excitement, with one person stating, “This looks terrifying.” Fans who have been eagerly waiting for this show to materialize rejoiced, with one saying, “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time; finally, it’s here!” Another summed it up with, “This looks amazing.”
The reality show adaptation of Squid Game is set to premiere on Netflix on November 22. Netflix’s description of the competition reads, “456 real players will enter the competition show in pursuit of a life-changing reward of USD $4.56 million. As they compete through a series of games inspired by the original show – plus surprising new additions – their strategies, alliances, and character will be put to the test while competitors are eliminated around them.
