Okay, who else has major Squid Game withdrawals and needs a Season 2 right now?
It looks like the powers that be at Netflix are okay with it, as we might hear a confirmation announcement soon!
Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk blurted out in an interview with Korean Broadcasting Service that he is “in talks with Netflix on season 2 as well as season 3” and “We will come to a conclusion. [some] time soon. He hints that the planning may be further ahead than we think: “We know a lot of people are waiting, so everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with a positive outlook.”
Netflix weighed in, saying, “It is true that we are discussing a wide variety of possibilities for ‘Squid Game’, including the production of a season 3, but nothing has been set in stone yet.”
According to the Korean Pop Culture website Soompi, Hwang also reveals to us what could be the potential plot of season 2: “The focus [of the season] will be the story of [Lee Jung Jae‘s character] Seong Gi-Hun unraveling [the mysteries of the organisation behind the game], “He shared.” The main plot of Season 2 will be the story of the people Gi-Hun meets and the people he pursues. “
We leave the end of Season 1 with Gi-Hun (in his shiny new hairstyle) deciding not to board the plane to the United States to visit his daughter, after he meets the scout of the secret organization trying to attract another potential candidate on his way to the airport. He seems poised for revenge and may seek to infiltrate the new games.
While the plot sounds compelling, we wonder how the series will perform with the fact that it has killed around 99.75% of its cast, including fan favorites like Ali, Sae-Byeok, and Il-Nam. Either way, we can’t wait to see where Gi-Hun’s story takes us next!
Who is ready to resume the game?
