Well, it is confirmed that Netflix are seeking out contestants to cast for season two of the show.

How do you apply for Squid Game: The Challenge?

Netflix are now casting for season two of the reality show based off of the Korean drama Squid Game. On the Squid Game: The Challenge casting page, there are three separate applications, one for US candidates, one for UK candidates and a final for other global hopefuls.

To be a part of the show you have to share your contact information, ie. name, location, D.O.B., email address, etc. and submit a one-minute long video describing who you are, why you want to compete, how you would overcome your competition, and what you would do with the prize money.

Finally, the application needs to include a recent photograph of yourself with no accessories (sunglasses, hats, etc.)

The application checklist is:

  • Contact info
  • One-min video of why you should be on the show
