Netflix has just announced the return of the iconic dystopian drama. But this time, it’s taking a wild turn and adopting the format of a reality show spin-off. Get ready for the mind-bending experience of Squid Game: The Challenge. According to Deadline, the upcoming season will feature 456 participants who will engage in a series of non-deadly challenges. All in pursuit of a mind-boggling prize pool of $4.56 million.
Protagonist Gi-hun (played by Lee Jung-Jae) may find himself having to make the difficult choice between good and evil, says the show’s creator.
In an interview, Dong-hyuk likens the possible future plotline to the same one that the Front Man (played by Lee Byung-hun) had to go through: “[He was] also a past winner but became a Front Man, it’s like Darth Vader. Some end up Jedi and some become Darth Vader, right?”
He added: “I think that maybe Gi-hun will go through a certain critical point where he is put through a test as well.”
Although no further details were given away. Lee Jung-Jae did joke: “If I had to be a Front Man, I would be the scariest Front Man you would ever see.”
Release date (Probably)
The show’s cast has also been relatively quiet about the release date. But there have been some hints from the show’s creators. In October, Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of Squid Game, recently revealed that he hopes to have the second season released by 2024. He also mentioned that production for the season would begin sometime in 2023, so we may get an official date soon.
Social media platforms are also great places to find hints about the release date. The show has an active fan base, and there are plenty of discussions about the upcoming season on Twitter and Reddit. Its cast is also active on social media and may explain when the second season will be released.
