Move over MrBeast, Netflix is gearing up to captivate audiences with its highly anticipated reality competition series, ‘Squid Game: The Challenge.’ Following the success of the popular K-Drama series, the official release date was announced during Netflix’s first upfront event. Consisting of 10 episodes, the show will feature 456 contestants engaging in challenges inspired by the games from the original series, all vying for a chance to win a whopping $4.56 million.
