If we had to pick a single TV show that everyone seems to be raving about right now, it would definitely be Squid Game. In case you’ve already binged through all the episodes of this South Korean survival drama, here are three similar shows with equally high stakes to check out next.
Alice in Borderland
Based on Haro Aso’s manga of the same name, Alice in Borderland is another popular survival drama making waves on Netflix right now. It centers on a group of delinquents, who have been transported to an abandoned version of Tokyo where they must compete in dangerous games in order to survive.
Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor
Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor and Squid Game are basically different sides of the same coin. The Japanese anime series centers on an impoverished young man, who’s forced to take part in dangerous gambling games after failing to repay his huge debt.
Brazilian dystopian series, available on Netflix, 3% also centers on a group of contestants taking place in a dangerous game in hope of a better life. It takes place in a dystopian future where 20-year-old individuals from an impoverished community take a series of tests for a chance to join a privileged society.
