Netflix Teases Who All Will Return In Squid Game Season 2, Drops Teaser

Netflix has officially greenlighted the Squid Game season 2, along with some specific details.

Red Light gets Green Light! Squid Game season 1 was an international success. The Korean survival drama has also been nominated for several awards, including the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and even a Golden Globe for actor O Yeong-su, who played the elderly 001. However, months after taking the world by storm and leaving fans yelling for more, Netflix’s Squid Game got greenlit for a Season 2 renewal this year in January.

For the past six months-plus, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has pulled double duty, campaigning for the first season while writing a second season of the drama it took him 12 years to bring to life. Hwang Dong-hyuk was also teased previously that Squid Game season 2 is on the way. However, Netflix has officially greenlighted the Squid Game season 2, along with some specific details. Netflix has recently shared a letter from Hwang and released it by the streamer and revealing who all will reprise their role.

Gi-hun played by Lee Jung-jae, will be back as the winner and sole survivor of the titular games, as well as the mysterious Front Man, revealed as superstar Lee Byung-hun, who operates the competition, will also reprise his role. In addition, Hwang teases the possible return of a fan-favourite cameo, beloved Korean leading man Gong Yoo, who played the anonymous recruiter who lures desperate people into the game through the traditional Korean card-flipping game of ‘ddakji.’

Squid game creator, Hwan, also promised that Squid Game season 2 will include new threats while revealing one, “You’ll also be introduced to Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su.” Although never named as such in the show, Korean viewers of a certain age will recognize Young-hee as the name of the little-girl character in their childhood textbooks, whose image was terrifyingly reappropriated as the larger-than-life animatronic figure during the deadly game of ‘Red Light, Green Light.’ In the textbooks, Young-hee shared adventures with a little boy, named Cheol-su.

Netflix also has released the first official teaser of Squid Game 2 that gives a close-up of the eye of an animatronic figure, likely Cheol-su, with a glowing red ‘2’ in the iris. Check out the first teaser of Squid game season 2 here:
