If you really enjoyed Squid Game, then you are probably anxious for it’s second season already. The ending of this Korean drama series also seemed to confirm that season two will definitly be there.
Squid Game turned out to be such a huge success given it was the most-watched show on Netflix when it first debuted, with 111 million viewers after only 17 days on the air. Netflix has added three more films directed by Dong-hyuk as a result of the success of Squid Game.
According to Director Hwang Dong-hyuk in an interview with The Associated Press season two of the series is in the works.
“I will say there will indeed be a second season,” Dong-hyuk tells AP while standing next to Lee Jung-jae, the actor who plays Squid Game’s beloved protagonist, Gi-hun. “It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently.”
“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,” Dong-hyuk continues.
Netflix announced in mid-October that a record 111 million households watched at least part of the brutal South Korean drama Squid Game, a rare reveal of viewing statistics from the tight-lipped streaming giant, which only publishes viewership data on specific shows on a periodic basis. Netflix, on the other hand, uses other criteria to assess Squid Games’ success, and according to those calculations, the series is expected to bring in $891.1 million in revenue for the corporation.
While Dong-hyuk says it’s “too early” to predict when or how season two would air, he did give an indication as to what we may expect: “I will promise you this: Gi-hun will come back — he will do something for the world.”
