Squid Recreation: The Problem: Finale Launch Date, and What to Anticipate

What an epic first season it’s been on Squid Game: The Challenge, and we can’t wait to see which of its three finalists emerges victorious — and USD 4.56 million richer — during the finale on December 6, 2023.

Netflix’s reality take on its hit Korean drama Squid Game launched on Wednesday 22 November with the first five episodes, which saw 456 players taking on trials similar to the original show in a bid to get their hands on the $4.56 million cash prize.

While most of the games remained the same, the Squid Game: The Challenge contestants were left in shock in episode three with the introduction of a new game, War Ships, instead of the tug of war challenge which the show decided to exclude.

There were lots more twists along the way, including the opportunity to eliminate other players. Now just down to three players after an intense game of Circle of Trust, the competition is well and truly on for the final.

But, who will take home the life-changing cash prize and be named the first winner of Squid Game: The Challenge?

Read on for everything you need to know about the show’s release schedule on Netflix, including when the final episode will air and which contestants remain in the running to take home the $4.56 million cash prize. Spoilers ahead, so you’ve been warned.
