Squid Game Creator Confirms The Second Season

The South Korean dystopian drama has gone on to become Netflix's most-watched series ever since its release in September.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed the second season of Netflix smash. While speaking at a guild screening of Squid Game, he said that show’s rabid fanbase had left him with no choice but to get to work on a second season.

Hwang stopped to talk about the series on the red carpet at the screening with Lee Jung-Jae, who stars in the series as Gi-hun. Hwang said, “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!” He added, “But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently.”

However, the creator, who also directed the series, didn’t have much to say about the direction of a second season but confirmed that Lee would continue to be a major focus of the series. “I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this,” he said in Korean, before switching to English, “Gi-hun will come back, and he’ll do something for the world.”
