Despite all the recent controversies, Netflix gives it a Green Light.
The first season of the Squid Game: The Challenge is still ongoing. Netflix gives the Green Light to season 2, so we will see more red-light challenges ahead.
“There was no red light in our decision to greenlight season two of Squid Game: The Challenge, the most ambitious unscripted show we’ve premiered at Netflix,” Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of Nonfiction Series, said in a statement. “We’re so excited to continue the franchise of Squid Game with our team in Korea, and producers at Studio Lambert and The Garden for this epic competition series.”
Moreover, the finale of the Squid Game: The Challenge will air today at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. In the finale, the remaining three players will compete for the ultimate price of $4.56 million. Player 287/Mai, Player 451/Phill, and Player 16/Sam are the last three players.
“They clearly had come on a long journey, and they deserved to be there,” executive producer Stephen Lambert tells Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a game of skill and luck, and they certainly had a lot of both of those things. It is a good mix, they’re all interesting characters. We’re glad that we had the diversity that is there among those three, and they all deserve to win.”
The first season premiered on November 22, when the first five episodes were released on Netflix. It started with 456 players, who went through different types of challenges to reach the final. The recruitment for season two is now open at squidgamecasting.com.
