Fans will have to wait a little longer than normal to find out who walks away with the $4.56 million prize.
Netflix's Squid Game reality competition spinoff is debuting its season 1 finale a few hours later than normal. The last episode will begin streaming Wednesday at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET (all of the previous nine episodes debuted Wednesdays at midnight PT/3 a.m. ET).
When the season began, 456 players entered Red Light, Green Light hoping to make it through to the end. Now, only three players remain: Player 287/Mai, Player 451/Phill, and Player 16/Sam. They each cemented their spot in the final three in episode 9's Circle of Trust game, which eliminated six players.
"They clearly had come on a long journey, and they deserved to be there," executive producer Stephen Lambert previously told EW of the top three. "It's a game of skill and luck, and they certainly had a lot of both of those things. It is a good mix, they're all interesting characters. We're glad that we had the diversity that is there among those three, and they all deserve to win."
Executive producer John Hay explained that, for the crew, it wasn't a surprise to see who made the final three. "We watched them earn their places through this very heightened game of Circle of Trust in different ways," Hay previously told EW. "Right at the outset, we knew we had to cast 456 people, any one of whom would've been an interesting and worthy winner. Fortunately, that did work, and they are all really interesting, impressive individuals."
