Is There a Season 2 for Squid Game?

The shockingly popular Korean drama on Netflix depicts a deadly competition for millions of dollars.

Squid Game

This year’s most exhilarating show has also become Netflix’s most surprising viral hit: the Korean drama Squid Game. A Battle Royale-style Game with numerous rounds based on traditional Korean and global children’s games follows adult contestants in this show (like Tug of War and Red Light, Green Light). Contrary to popular belief, the characters in Squid Game are not compelled to participate in the death game. Their lives have been put on the line in order to stand a chance of winning $38.5 million.

Even before it had a chance to gain traction on social media, Squid Game had risen to the top of the Netflix Top 10, where it has remained ever since. Despite the fact that the show is difficult to binge because of the graphic violence and deep moral concerns, the show’s superb characters and horrifying games make viewers wonder if they can make it through the lethal competition and how much money a life is worth. Along with spreading the word, fans are also calling for a second season. So yet, nothing has been revealed about a prospective third installment of this critically acclaimed drama series.

The Season 1 finale establishes the possibility of a second season

After his boyhood buddy turned nemesis, Cho Sang-woo (Park Hae-soo), sacrifices himself, Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) wins the game in this nine-episode series. He refuses to spend the money for nearly a year out of shock and anguish. Eventually, he discovers that Oh Il-nam (Oh Young-soo), the elderly man he befriended and then betrayed during the Game, was the true mastermind behind everything.

As a result of Oh Il-death, nam’s Gi-hun comes to realize that the Game hasn’t ended. Going to see his daughter at the airport, he bumps into the Salesman (Gong Yoo) who is looking for a new player. As opposed to boarding the plane, Gi-hun walks away, promising to put a stop to the Game for good.

The vengeful conclusion leaves the tale open for a sequel, which will follow Gi-hun as he battles the wealthy game developers. The show is categorized on Netflix as a seasonal series, not a limited series, implying that Season 2 is feasible despite Netflix’s silence. And Korean operas that run for multiple seasons on Netflix are nothing new. Kingdom, a historical zombie story, received a second season, as did Love Alarm, a high school romance.

Season 2 will almost certainly have a totally new cast

TK Fans’ favorite Kang Sae-byeok (Jung Ho-yeon) and mysterious mastermind Oh Il-nam were among those who perished this season, save for Gi-hun. Regardless of the direction the next season takes, whether it’s a new Game or an operation to bring the entire company down, Squid Game will require a new set of players.

Season 2 speculations abound, and one of the most popular is that a figure other than Gi-hun would return. During the first season, police detective Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-joon) investigated the game from the inside out while trying to find his missing brother. It turned out that Jun-brother ho’s had been the Game’s masked Front Man the entire time, and the last time we saw him, he was being shot by the Front Man and tumbling off a cliff into the ocean.

Despite the fact that Jun-Ho was left for dead, we never see his corpse being pulled from the river. However, he may have escaped with just a deepened resolve to stop the deadly Game for good. A new season could see him working alongside Gi-hun. This is a K-drama, so it’s not out of the question. In general, resurrections occur.

Hwang Dong-hyuk, the director, is not in a hurry to generate another season

In an interview with Variety, the director discussed the writing process for Squid Game, a project he initially began working on in 2008. As Hwang’s first television series, he admitted that writing it was more difficult than normal, taking him six months to complete the first two episodes. He did not confirm anything, but he did have one hope for Season 2. He did not confirm anything.

Squid Game 2 isn’t something I have solid ideas for yet. The very act of imagining it is exhausting enough. Nevertheless, even if I were to do it, I would not go it alone. The writers’ room would be an option for me, but I also want several directors with a wide range of experience.

Meanwhile, Hwang indicated to Variety that he may return to film. At the moment, his project is dubbed “KO Club,” an acronym for “Killing Old Men Club,” and it has “a type of inter-generational battle concept,” according to him. The second part will undoubtedly be worth waiting for, no matter what happens.
