Netflix announces a second season of Squid Game: The Challenge for 2024.

Netflix has confirmed that Squid Game: The Challenge has been renewed for a second season.

The real-life gameshow version of the hit Korean drama - Netflix's most popular show of all time - has just wrapped up its first season, with one of the initial 456 contestants winning the $4.56 million cash prize.

"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," said Brandon Riegg, vp of non-fiction at the streamer.

"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."

Casting for the new season is open online now, with filming expected to take place in the UK in the first half of 2024.

Meanwhile, filming is underway on the second season of the original drama ahead of a release next year.
