A real-life version of the massively popular series "Squid Game" is coming -- and from the looks of a new teaser, it will be wild.

"Squid Game: The Challenge" will feature 456 players competing in a series of games inspired by the Korean-language drama for a grand prize of $4.56 million, which Netflix touts as "the largest cash prize in reality television history."

A synopsis for the 10-episode show promises "surprising new additions" for fans of the original series and teases that players' "strategies, alliances, and character will be put to the test while competitors are eliminated around them."

"$4.56 million? People do a whole lot worse for a whole lot less," one contestant says in the teaser, which puts a lot of emphasis on the piggy bank full of the grand prize money and the animatronic doll Young-hee.

"Squid Game: The Challenge" premieres Nov. 22 on Netflix.
