Not only has the show sparked fan frenzy all over the world, fans are already looking forward to its second season — some even coming up with theories about the show’s backstory.
Squid Game director hints at Season 2
Since its launch, there has not been much news about a possible sequel of the show, up until recently when director Hwang Dong-hyuk hinted at a possible next season.
According to him, Squid Game was not intended to be a multi-season series, and as he mentions in an earlier interview, “didn’t have a clear plan for a second season”.
However in a recent interview with The Times, Hwang Dong-hyuk shared that he has some new ideas for season 2 — largely inspired by fans and feedback from the community.
Many speculate that season 2 will focus around Squid Game’s winner, Gi-hun, who would go back into the game to “seek answers” surrounding the shadow organization behind it.
So when will Squid Game Season 2 be released?
As of now, it is still too early to tell when Squid Game season 2 will be released, as there is still much to be done — scriptwriting, casting, filming, and more.
Assuming it is confirmed, Squid Game season 2 could take at least a year or two from today before it will hit screens.
