“Squid Game: The Challenge” will see 456 contestants from around the world battle it out through various challenges based on the Korean game show in the scripted series, as well as introducing some new games.
Only one winner will take home the $4.56 million cash prize.
“Though the reality version of ‘Squid Game‘ isn’t a matter of life or death, there’s still a lot on the line,” reads the show’s logline. “456 players will compete to win $4.56 million, the largest cash prize in reality television history. Through a series of games, each player will be pushed to their limits and forced to ask themselves just how far they’ll go to win, with opportunistic alliances, cutthroat strategies and timely betrayals to follow.”
However the series has already been mired in controversy after contestants required medical assistance during the shoot, which took place in the U.K. during a surprise cold snap. Variety reported at the time that a number of contestants — who were not paid for their participation in the series — collapsed on set from a combination of cold and fatigue.
The show is produced by Studio Lambert — the same company behind hit game show “The Traitors” — and The Garden.
