Squid Game Season 2 is coming, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirms

Last Updated:

According to series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, Squid Game will return for a second season.

This week, the director and writer of the hit Netflix series spoke with the Associated Press about his success on the streaming platform and his desire for more.

Netflix’s CEO correctly predicted that Squid Game would become the service’s most popular series.

However, in previous interviews, Dong-hyuk seemed to indicate that there had been nothing concrete in terms of plans. It doesn’t get more real than “there will indeed be a second season,” and Gi-hun will be back, which will make a lot of fans happy.

Since its debut, Squid Game has sparked plenty of debate, so it only made sense to keep the momentum going. See what he had to say about Season 2 in the video below.

“So, 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,”

he began.

“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,”

he further stated.

Previously, Hwang Dong-hyuk spoke to The Guardian about his thoughts on Season 2.

“Of course, there is talk,”

he explained.

“That’s inevitable because it’s been such a success. I am considering it. I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I’m not going to work on it straight away. There’s a film I really want to make. I’m thinking about which to do first. I’m going to talk to Netflix,”

Dong-hyuk further explained.

Here’s Netflix’s description of Squid Game:

“A mysterious invitation to join the game is sent to people at risk who are in dire need of money. 456 participants from all walks of life are locked into a secret location where they play games in order to win 45.6 billion won. Every game is a Korean traditional children’s game such as Red Light, Green Light, but the consequence of losing is death. Who will be the winner, and what is the purpose behind this game?”
