Two years ago, the South Korean thriller Squid Game was a massive hit on Netflix. It captured the imagination of millions of viewers thanks to its mix of challenges, mystery, tension and anti-capitalist satire. Although a second season of the series was quickly announced, the release date is still unknown.
However, fans longing for more Squid Game challenge action have something else to look forward to. It seems that the reality show based on the series also squirmed its way into viewers’ hearts. The first season was so well received that Netflix ordered another instalment in the blink of an eye.
Find out what to expect from season 2 of the unusual programme and when it will be released.
When will Squid Game: The Challenge season 2 be released?
So far, Netflix hasn’t announced the premiere date for the show’s second season. However, we speculate that it may be released at the end of 2024.
What is Squid Game: The Challenge season 2 about?
The original South Korean survival thriller told the story of a group of 456 people locked in a facility on a private island to take part in a terrifying competition inspired by children’s games. The winner would get a gigantic prize of 45.6 billion won (over $33 million), but the losers faced death.
Netflix has decided to recreate the series’ challenges… skipping the part where they kill off the losing contestants, of course.
As the show’s description goes:
With both the largest cast and lump sum cash prize in reality TV history, 456 real players will enter the game in pursuit of a life-changing reward of $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. The stakes are high, but in this game the worst fate is going home empty-handed.
The series faced some media criticism when it was rumoured that contestants faced uncomfortable conditions on set, including freezing temperatures (via Rolling Stone). Netflix has denied these rumours.
Who are the contestants on Squid Game: The Challenge season 2?
The reality show features the same number of contestants as the TV series, making Squid Game: The Challenge arguably the largest project of this kind in television history.
Casting for the production is conducted worldwide, with English language skills as a basic requirement.
Is there a trailer for Squid Game: The Challenge season 2?
There’s no trailer for season 2 yet, but you can get a flavour of what awaits the programme’s participants in the season 1 trailer below:
What are the games in Squid Game: The Challenge season 2?
In season 1, the participants had to face the same challenges and compete in the same games as the characters in the series. However, the show also featured games that weren’t in the original Squid Game. Below, you will find a complete list of season 1 games and tests:
Red Light, Green Light
Dalgona (Sugar Honeycombs)
Circle of Trust
Rock Paper Scissors
We assume that in the second season, the show’s creators will want to surprise viewers and contestants by bringing in some new challenges, although we expect some of the iconic original games to remain.
