Netflix renews Squid Game: The Challenge for season two with casting now open

Netflix renews Squid Game: The Challenge for season two with casting now open

Enough people thought they'd like to be part of Squid Game that it's coming back for season two

Netflix have announced it's casting a new bunch of contestants for season two of Squid Game: The Challenge.

The gameshow based off the hit South Korean drama is set to release the final episode tomorrow (7 December), but if you've been watching and reckon you have a decent chance of winning the money, now's your chance.

Netflix today announced on social media that Squid Game: The Challenge had been renewed for a second season and called on people to apply if they wanted to be in with a chance of winning.

With a prize pot of $4.56 million (about £3.6 million) up for grabs for the last player standing, it's sure to be a lucrative opportunity, but you've got to make it through to the end, which is easier said than done.

Netflix is accepting applications from all over the world and if you want to be in with a chance of being on season two of Squid Game: The Challenge, you can apply here.

However, be warned that you won't be able to do every part of the iconic Squid Game series of competitions, as in some of the more dangerous moments you'll be replaced by actors.

$4.56 million on offer for the last player standing, but do you dare apply?

The show isn't actually going to drop you through a hole if you jump the wrong way on the glass bridge game, they'll get someone else to take the fall.

However, even if you've seen the first season of Squid Game: The Challenge, you might end up not knowing what to expect.




Producers told LADbible one of the biggest challenges in making the show was wrong-footing people who'd watched Squid Game and thought they knew what was coming.

They had to come up with all sorts of tricks and misdirection to bamboozle contestants, particularly ahead of the marbles game where players would have to split into pairs and half would be going out.

Squid Game: The Challenge is looking for 456 new contestants for season two.

You may also wish to heed the claims of some contestants who were part of season one.

Some threatened to sue Netflix over conditions on the show, with two people who said they were on the show alleging that they suffered hypothermia and nerve damage due to it being so cold.

A spokesperson for Squid Game: The Challenge said at the time: "No lawsuit has been filed by any of the Squid Game contestants. We take the welfare of our contestants extremely seriously."

Netflix had previously confirmed that three contestants did require medical attention, but described claims that the games were rigged or the conditions inhumane as 'simply untrue'.

Others who appeared on the show as contestants said they would go back, with contestant number 161 (aka Lorenzo) telling LADbible he would definitely give it another go if he had the chance.

The first season of Squid Game: The Challenge is available now on Netflix, with the finale due to drop tomorrow for UK viewers.
