'Squid Game: The Challenge' arrives on Netflix on November 22
"Squid Game: The Challenge," the controversial real-life adaptation of the hit South Korean series of the same name, will be available on Netflix on November 22.
The streaming platform has shared a glimpse of the 10-episode series, which pits 456 real-life contestants against diverse games and challenges to win a $4.56 million cash prize. Netflix claims it is the highest prize ever in reality show history.
As in the original series, players will be eliminated each round until one person claims the top prize.
"$4.56 million? People do a whole lot worse for a whole lot less," one contestant says in the teaser.
Some footage was also shown, including the "Red Light, Green Light" and glass bridge games from the original series.
Netflix first announced "Squid Game: The Challenge" last year and sought English-speaking contestants from around the world.
The series was then filmed in the United Kingdom.
Some players have reportedly sustained injuries amid inhumane living conditions during the filming of the show. Netflix has since denied the allegations.
The upcoming series is a co-production between Netflix and independent TV production companies Studio Lambert and The Garden.
