If you haven’t watched Squid Game, you’re missing out on this hidden gem. Ever since Squid Game was launched in September 2021; it has been one of the most popular shows on Netflix.
Created by Hwang Dong-hyuk, this amazing Korean content that has nine episodes in total took over the world by storm. Fans who have binge-watched all the episodes are eager to know if the deadly game will ever come to an end, hoping for Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae), the main character to return to the game once again to end it. This may lead to a potential season 2 perhaps?
Here’s what we know about the second season of Squid Game’s release date, cast and more.
Will there be Squid Game season 2?
Yes, the widely popular Korean series Squid Game season 2 has been officially renewed by Netflix.
Let’s take a look at what the stars have to say regarding the second season of the Netflix series:
According to Lee Jung-Jae, who plays the lead role Seong Gi-hun, appears to be up for another season. Speaking to the New York Times about the possibilities of a new season and where his character would go next, he said: “That’s a very difficult question because the story could go in any direction, and some of Gi-hun’s emotions are very complicated. He’s a very intriguing character. I guess he could go and try and punish the creators of the game. Or he could try to stop new contestants from playing it. Or he could try to join the game again. I have no idea at this point.”
Wi Ha-Joon who plays the detective Hwang Jun-ho via Deadline said, “I’m dying to know what happened to him. I want him to return alive, find his brother and ask him tons of questions. As a brother, I would ask him sincerely.”
He continued: “As a detective, I want to explore the overall secrets behind the game as well. I really hope to see Jun-ho come back alive and explore all these questions. I hope to see a more brotherly-love side of their relationship as well.”
Dong-hyuk also disclosed to the Hollywood Reporter that many fans have requested him to pen down the second season. And he’s definitely feeling the pressure.
He said, “The pressure on me is huge now, with such a big audience waiting for season two. Because of all that pressure, I haven’t decided yet whether or not I should do another season. But if you look at it in a positive way, because so many people loved season one and are expecting good things for season two, there are people everywhere in the world offering their opinions about where the show should go. I could actually pull ideas from fans all around the world to create the next season.”
The series creator Dong-hyuk is presently working on a new movie called “KO Club” so we assume that expecting a Squid Game season 2 anytime soon is a far cry.
