Squid Game Season 2 Officially Confirmed By Show Creator

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has officially confirmed that there will be a second season of the hit Netflix show.

Speaking with AP, the director, creator and writer said that there had been ‘so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season’, admitting that he felt as though he had ‘no choice’ but to reveal that there would indeed be a season two.

Dong-hyuk didn’t give too much away in terms of plot details, but did reveal that he is currently ‘in the planning process’ and that ‘it’s in my head right now’.

He continued:

I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this: Gi-hun will come back, and he’ll do something for the world.

Speaking with The Times last month, Dong-hyuk hinted that a second season may focus on the masked Frontman as well as the role of the police.

The first nine-episode season of the Korean survival drama landed on Netflix on September 17, and quickly became one of the most talked-about shows of 2021, offering a fresh and timely take on the battle royale genre.
