Netflix is recruiting participants for a reality TV show inspired by its most popular series of all time, Squid Game.

However, it will not be life or death that is at stake, as depicted in the South Korean dystopian drama.

Instead, 456 recruits from around the world will play games where "the worst fate is going home empty-handed" - missing out on a $4.56m (£3.8m) prize.

Netflix also confirmed that the popular series would be renewed for a second season earlier this week.

On Wednesday, the platform announced that its new 10-episode series - Squid Game: The Challenge - would offer the "largest cast and lump cash prize in reality TV history".

"As [players] compete through a series of games inspired by the original show - plus surprising new additions - their strategies, alliances, and character will be put to the test while competitors are eliminated around them,"

I Call True: After the unparalleled success of the show it was always going to get a follow up but a reality game show as well? We'll see I guess

A great show that is well worth a watch, but let's hope that this reality spin off TV show is a little less brutal!
