Squid Game became a global phenomenon when it premiered on Netflix in 2021, becoming the most-watched Netflix show of all time. The series is set around a dangerous contest featuring children’s games where 456 players play, but only one will get the ₩45.6 billion prize and also… get to live. With the show’s success, a sequel is in the works, and filming began back in July 2023. If you can’t wait for the sequel, Netflix has more Squid Game content coming soon.

Today, Netflix has released a teaser for Squid Game: The Challenge, a reality competition series based on the original scripted series. It’s a Western production from UK production companies The Garden and Studio Lambert. Contestants will be eliminated, but it’s safe to say we won’t see them dying left and right like in the original show from creator Hwang Dong-hyuk and South Korean production company Siren Pictures Inc.

The competition series will premiere on November 22 on Netflix.
