Netflix has clarified that any reports of serious injury from their reality series “Squid Game: The Challenge” are untrue.
According to reports from The Sun, the players who participated in the contest have been “severely injured” during production. They were taken to an air force base near Bedford, England. The contestants said the injury happened during the filming of the “Red Light, Green Light” game, which is really one of the most memorable challenges from the original series.
In a statement from THR, Netflix and Studio Lambert, who produced the series along with The Garden told The Sun’s story was not true. “We care deeply about the health and safety of our cast and crew and invested in all the appropriate safety procedures. While it was very cold on set — and participants were prepared for that — any claims of serious injury are untrue,” said Netflix in a statement.
With both the largest cast and lump sum cash prize in reality TV history, 456 real players will enter the game in pursuit of a life-changing reward of $4.56 million. As they 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. The stakes are high, but in this game, the worst fate is going home empty-handed.
