Squid Game will be getting a second season, as confirmed by the show’s creator Hwang Dong-hyuk while speaking to the Associated Press. In confirming this, Hwang Dong-hyuk noted there’s been a lot of pressure and demand for a second season.
We imagine this comes from both fans as well as Netflix, with Squid Game setting a record as the biggest series launch on the platform to date.
While details on what the second season of Squid Game will entail have yet to be shared, Hwang Dong-hyuk does share that season one’s main character Gi-hun will return in season two.
“There’s been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season, so I almost feel like you leave us no choice,” Hwang Dong-hyuk told the Associated Press.
“But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now, I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back, he will do something for the world.”
If you’ve watched Squid Game to the end, Gi-hun returning shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given the change of plans that he makes. We also know from the show that the games aren’t a one-time thing, so could we potentially witness a new round of games with new characters?
Perhaps Gi-hun will try to save them and stop the games, or get the police involved? Only time will tell. We’re looking forward to finding out more about season two of Squid Game as new details are shared by its creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk.
Until then, we’re curious what your thoughts are upon hearing that Squid Game is getting a second season, and that season one’s Gi-hun will be a part of season two’s story?
