With how much of a global phenomenon Squid Game turned out to be, it’s almost criminal not to give the show a second season. Besides, we’re sure millions of viewers still want an explanation for the Netflix K-drama’s bizarre ending. Luckily, the show’s creator finally put clamoring fans at ease in a recent interview.
While in Los Angeles with the rest of the cast, director Hwang Dong Hyuk told AP Entertainment that Squid Game will indeed be coming back for another season. “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,” he said.
Since Netflix itself has yet to publicly give the much-awaited renewal the green light, Dong Hyuk did clarify that the series is still currently in “the planning process.” He continued, “But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this…Gi-Hun will come back, and he will do something for the world.”
Don’t get too excited, though, because it looks like we’ve got quite a way to go before we get final word from the streamer. In response to news of the megahit show returning, Netflix informed media that Squid Game season two is “in discussions, but not confirmed yet.”
After premiering on the platform last September, Squid Game quickly snowballed into a worldwide sensation. It’s now the most watched show on Netflix, having attracted over 111 million viewers and effectively catapulting its cast—Lee Jung Jae, Park Hae Soo, Jung Ho Yeon, Wi Ha Joon, and Anupam Tripathi—to global stardom.
