More about Squid Game: The Challenge

Netflix is yet to confirm the female cast members for the show. Park Gyu Young, Jo Yu Ri, and Kim Si Eun are also reported to feature in the show. In the Netflix series, hundreds of cash-strapped contestants compete in children's games for a huge cash prize while risking their lives in the process.

In this new season, 456 contestants will compete in a series of non-lethal challenges, all in the hopes of winning a jaw-dropping prize pool of $4.56 million. It's a departure from the deadly games that kept audiences on the edge of their seats, but it promises to be just as thrilling and intense.
