According to series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, Squid Game will return for a second season. This week, the director and writer of the successful Netflix series spoke with the Associated Press about his success on the streaming platform and his desire for more. Netflix’s CEO correctly anticipated that Squid Game would become the service’s most popular series. However, in prior interviews, Dong-hyuk seemed to hint that there had been nothing substantial in terms of planning.
Hwang Dong-hyuk 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 began. “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. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen.”
