Fan have been expecting a Season 2 since Squid Game became the most-streamed Netflix series to date in October with over 111 million viewers. The thriller even went past the previously most-watched series, Bridgerton, which fell behind by a whopping 29 million viewers. It’s first season was even ranked in Netflix’s Top 10 in all 94 countries that have the rating system.

The show’s creator and Director, Hwang Dong-hyuk also shared his plans for season 2 of Squid Game in a translated conversation with The Associated Press. At the time, he said,

“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! 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 also teased the plot of the Korean drama series. According to him, if there were to be a season 2, in the first season that we saw Gi-hun is a character whose humanity is shown through or exposed in certain situations. In other words, his humanity is shown through a very passive manner. But I would think that in the second season, what he has learned from the games and his experience in the first season, they will all be put to use in a more active manner.”

Last month, he also confirmed to The Korea Times that he was in conversation with Netflix about seasons 2 and 3. He revealed,

“I’m in talks with Netflix over season two as well as season three. We will come to a conclusion any time soon.”
