Netflix has officially given the green light for season 2 of the hit series Squid Game. The broadcaster has released a short teaser and message from series creator Hwang Dong-Hyuk confirming the return of his favorite characters and a new deadly doll.
After the Korean series Squid Game became a worldwide phenomenon, making a second season was a no-brainer for Netflix. Season 1 of Squid Game took the world by storm when it appeared on Netflix in 2021 and brought in nearly $1 billion in profits for Netflix shortly after its release, a record high.
Netflix has finally officially confirmed that Squid Game would officially return to its platform for a second season† According to a report from director Hwang Dong-hyuk, Gi-hun and the mysterious Front Man will return in the second season. The note also states that “the man in the suit with the ddakji may be back” and that… we will also meet Cheol-su, Young-hee’s boyfriend.
When season 2 of Squid Game to come?
Netflix has not yet announced an exact date for the release of the second season of Squid Game, simply announcing that it will arrive “soon”. As a reminder, in the language of Netflix, this means it will be launched between now and the end of the world.
We can imagine it will last wait a little longer before you can enjoy season 2† Director Hwang reminds fans that it took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year. But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series of all time,” Hwang wrote.
The creator of Squid Game had previously announced that Season 2 would not be released until 2024. Very busy with the release of his latest movie, he hasn’t made much headway with the script for the cult series sequel yet. Even before the arrival of the second season, we know that a third season is already in talks with Netflix. It’s good news to see Netflix working on other seasons because if you’re a fan of Korean series, you know for sure that it’s extremely rare for a series to get a season 2, no matter how successful it is.
