Squid Game: The Challenge Season 2

During an Emmys red carpet appearance with Deadline last fall, director Hwang Dong-hyuk revealed some narrative tidbits from the cliffhanger-ending first season of Squid Game on Netflix. According to Hwang, Lee Jung-jae’s character Gi-hun would be motivated by vengeance in the second season. Netflix announced on June 28 that eight more cast members would be joining Squid Game; the show had its first table read the week before last, and production is expected to begin later this year.

The 456 real-life competitors in Squid Game: The Challenge compete in high-stakes versions of classic Squid Game challenges. They will compete in green tracksuits identical to those seen on-screen to win $4.56 million; however, due to network policy changes, there will be no fatal penalties for the contestants.

However, even though a tempting reward is at stake, some will still make it to the end. Contestants have complained about what they see as inhumane production conditions, such as freezing temperatures, long filming sessions, and a lack of food provisioning during shoots; one contestant even fainted during one shoot session. Network officials have addressed these concerns, but it remains to be seen whether the show can live up to the hype.
