Hwang Dong-hyuk likely never imagined the massive scope of Squid Game‘s success. The creator of the Netflix global phenomenon is well-known feature film director in Korea who initially developed Squid Game as a movie. It only became a nine-part series after years of rejections; 13 years after the creator first had the idea for the story, the media landscape had changed enough that Hwang’s vision fit into a modern streaming TV drama format. That being said, Hwang didn’t necessarily imagine it as a multi-part drama, but, as we all know from watching Squid Game, money talks… and the talented creator is ready to extend Gi-hun’s story part a single season. (And hopefully will get paid better for it this time.)
Squid Game Season 2 is confirmed: “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,” Hwang told AP News at a red carpet event in LA. “But, I will say there will indeed be a second season.”
Squid Game Season 2 Potential Release Date
Of course, official confirmation doesn’t mean it’s right around the corner. While it hopefully won’t take another 13 years, the second season needs to be written, shot, and edited before we get to see it. Hwang addressed the question of a potential release date for the second season with pragmatism: “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.” It’s gonna be awhile, folks. These things take time.
Squid Game Season 2 Story
What might Season 2 be about? Previously, Hwang had mentioned a potential second season could follow the story of Inho’s Front Man, but in the short AP News interview, the Korean director’s short tease focused on the Season 1 protagonist: “Gi-hun will come back. He’ll do something for the world,” Hwang said in English.
