After the massive success of the Korean series Squid Game, Netflix announces the biggest reality competition series ever, Squid Game: The Challenge. However, it will not be life or death that is at stake, as shown in the South Korean dystopian drama.

This is really a huge cash prize. The Squid Game reality show is a co-production between Studio Lambert (The Circle) and The Garden (24 Hours in A&E), part of ITV Studios, and it will be filmed in the UK.
