Netflix’s super-hit series Squid Game is getting a season 2. There’s no way anyone is going to pass up the opportunity to continue to cash in on this cash crop! When talking about Season 2, series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk said, “I don’t have well-developed plans for Squid Game 2. It is quite tiring just thinking about it. ” At the time, he said that he was just considering it.
The creator is ready to get to work and has begun thinking about it. Dong-hyuk, the director and writer of the series, later spoke to the Associated Press and confirmed, “There will indeed be a second season.”
He explained the demand and pressure he’s been getting to make a second season, saying, “So, there’s been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you left us with 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.”
As for what he has envisioned for Season 2, he didn’t offer any story details, but he did previously share, “I have a very high-level picture in my mind.” He also said, “I would certainly not do it alone.” I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors. “
In the first season, “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 and Green Light, but the consequence of losing is death. Who will be the winner, and what is the purpose behind this game? “
