Netflix shares first look at Squid Game season 2

Netflix shares first look at Squid Game season 2

It's finally here!

Here we go... Netflix has finally shared a first look at Squid Game season two and we can't wait. Check it out:

For those unaware, the premise for the first season of the South Korean Netflix series is pretty straight forward.

456 players who are in major financial ruin compete against one other in a selection of deadly children's games for a prize of 45.6 billion won - roughly around £23.2 million.

If you don't win or decide that you want to leave the competition, well, you're brown bread.

It's basically survival of the fittest, and there's no room for error.

Netflix has announced the release date for Squid Game season two.

Hwang Dong-hyuk, who directed the show, previously spoke to Associated Press about the unbelievable reception that season one received, and the desire among fans around the world to see more.

As far as confirmations go, the director said in 2021: "So, there's been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice.

"But, I will say there will indeed be a second season. It's in my head right now. I'm in the planning process currently. But I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen."

It's the survival of the fittest, and there's no room for error.

Now, taking to social media today, Netflix has revealed a first look at the new series, set to air this year.

And viewers have well and truly lapped it up, with one writing: "I can’t wait!".

Another commented: "I’m here for Squid Game," as a third added: "Squid Game is gonna be wild."

This comes after Netflix's announcement in December that it's casting a new bunch of contestants for season two of Squid Game: The Challenge.

The 10-part reality series recreates the outfits and sets, although the deadly consequences from the individual games are replaced with an elimination-style competition.

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

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.

This 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.
