Fans of the popular Netflix show “Squid Game” are eagerly waiting for the second season, but the show itself is getting its own reality show this year. “Squid Game: The Challenge” is the name of the television show based on the original show.

Media sources say that “Squid Game: The Challenge” will have 456 contestants play different games based on the original “Squid Game” series, plus many new games, for a grand prize of $4.56 million.

Stephen Lambert, Tim Harcourt, John Hay, and Toni Ireland, among others, will be in charge of this reality show version of the “Squid Game” series that doesn’t involve killing.

The first episode of “Squid Game: The Challenge” is set to air on Netflix in November. But there hasn’t been an official date set for the reality show yet.
