Gi-hun in Squid Game

Squid Game season two gets the green light

Let the games continue

The director of Squid Game has confirmed that the most popular show in Netflix history will be back for a second season. 

“There’s been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season,” Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of the South Korean drama, told AP Entertainment. “So I almost feel like you leave us no choice!”

Netflix is yet to make an announcement or to release any details of a follow-up to its most successful franchise, but Dong-hyuk promised that “there will indeed be a second season.” He added: “It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently.”

The director also hinted that the main star of the first series, Soeng Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), would return to “do something for the world”. The ending of season one very much leaves the door open for that, however, Dong-hyuk added: “I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen.”

Following the runaway success of Squid Game, Netflix added three films made by Dong-hyuk before he created the hit TV series. The line-up includes 2011 crime-drama Silenced which follows a teacher – played by Squid Game’s Gong Yoo – who uncovers abuse at a school for hearing impaired children, 2014 comedy-drama Miss Granny, and 2017 historical drama The Fortress starring Squid Game’s Kim Yoon-seok and Lee Byung-hun.

Hopefully it won’t be long before Squid Game season two is added to that list.
