Netflix has released a trailer for the upcoming reality series, “Squid Game: The Challenge.” This show takes inspiration from the fictional “Squid Game” and features 456 contestants competing for a $4.56 million prize. The events are repackaged from the original series but without the brutal violence. The trailer highlights the familiar “red light, green light” game from the South Korean show, with contestants nervously participating.
While “Squid Game: The Challenge” appears to embrace reality TV spectacle, it raises questions about the exploitation of the financially desperate for profit and entertainment.
The series is set to premiere on Netflix on November 22.
