*Warning: This article contains spoilers*- Squid Game season 2

If you are looking for Squid Game Season 2 then you are correct place & also If you watched Netflix’s Squid Game and are still suffering from nightmares, you might want to prepare yourself for some more restless nights. Since the dystopian thriller series hit our screens in September 2021 it became Netflix’s number one ‘must-see’ show across 90 countries and the streaming platform’s most successful non-English show. It soon also became Netflix’s biggest ever series launch (surpassing Bridgerton’s record earlier last year), and the hashtag #squidgame had over 27.5 billion (yes, billion) views on TikTok in weeks.

Over Halloween 2021 weekend, ‘Squid Game baby costumes‘ became the number one term on Google’s top-trending rankings, three primary schools New York ended up banning Halloween costumes inspired by the show and Netflix commissioned an huge replica of the unsettling ‘Red Light, Green Light’ doll from episode one to loom over Sydney, Australia for All Hallows’ Eve. Talk about creepy, right?

Yes, it's official - Squid Game season 2 is on the way.

Has Squid Game season 2 been confirmed?

Yes, it’s official – season two is on the way.

In June 2022, a post shared via the show’s official Twitter page read: ‘On your marks. Get set. Greenlight. Squid Game continues, only on Netflix. [sic]’

In January 2021 Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos opened up about the platform’s plans for a second season of Squid Game and the ‘Squid Game Universe’, which he believes has the potential to involve live experiences, merchandise and mobile gaming.

‘The Squid Game universe has just begun,’ Sarandos said,’ according to Marca. ‘We’re building those muscles steadily with our consumer products, both like the Squid Game tracksuits, and then we’re making a big push on experiences that are mobile and portable.’

On November 9, 2021, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk spoke to Associated Press, and confirmed what we had all been lusting after, that new episodes of the hit TV show are indeed on their way: This content is imported from twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

‘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! 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. So I will promise you this…(in English) Gi-Hun will come back, and he will do something for the world.’

When will Squid Game season two be released?

Squid Game: The Challenge will drop on Netflix on 22 November 2023, meaning we don’t have too long to wait.

At last year’s Critics Choice Awards, he told Variety that the season two script doesn’t even exist just yet. ‘It’s here. Not on the page, it’s here,’ he said, pointing at his head. ‘Everything is secret. I cannot tell anything.’

He then said a comeback for Jung-jae’s character Seong Gi-hun is in store, noting: ‘But he will come back and do something for the world.’

We first heard about Netflix’s Squid Game back in 2019. It then took another two years for filming and production to finish up, so it’s likely we wouldn’t see a second season until 2023 (even 2024!).

As for the show’s awards success, actor O Yeong-su won Best Supporting Actor in Television at the 2022

Golden Globe for his role as Player 001 in season one. The win marks the first time a Korean actor has won an award at the prestigious event.

Who will star in Squid Game Season 2?

Speaking at Netflix’s global fan event, Tudum 2023, on June 17, it was revealed that Squid Game: The Challenge will welcome Yim Si-wan, Kang Ha-neul, Park Sung-hoon and Yang Dong-geun to the cast of the Squid Game Season 2.

They’ll appear alongside returning stars Lee Jung-jae, who played the series’ protagonist Seong Gi-hun (a.k.a. Player 456), Lee Byung-hun, who portrayed Front Man (the leader of the team running the competition); and Wi Ha-jun, who played the role of Hwang Jun-ho (the interloper who broke into the competition to try and find his brother).

What have the cast said about Squid Game Season 2?

Jung HoYeon has addressed several fan theories about season two after many viewers have speculated her character Kang Saebyeok might have survived.

In a YouTube video with Vanity Fair, the actor debunked the theories seen on Reddit. Firstly, the star disagreed with a Reddit user’s suggestion that her character’s little brother Cheoul could enter the game to avenge her death. ‘My brother shouldn’t go there to play… I’m gonna say no for that,’ she said.

As to the rumours that 001 is 456’s father given the latter dislikes milk just like 001’s son, and that he and 001’s son have the same birthday, HoYeon replied: ‘It could make sense. But that’s even more stressful to watch. Do you need more stress?…

‘Maybe Director Hwang needs more stress, but I’m a more peaceful person.’

The actor also shut down rumours her character survived at the end of season one. While she said she also wishes her character saved herself, she also is ‘quite happy’ that her character died. ‘I can get rid of every stress,’ she said before adding that she and the show’s director joked about her character having a twin sister.

‘I don’t think she might come back,’ she noted of her character. ‘And also guys, I’m so sorry to say this, but I’m very happy to be dying.’

HoYeon also said that Gi-hun ‘is not going to be their front-man’, despite chatter online, and that Squid Games isn’t on Jeju Island.

The actor also shut down rumours her character survived at the end of season one

Fans of the show will remember the detective spent the majority of the first season on the hunt for his missing brother nnd resorted to working behind-the-scenes at the Game. In the end of Season 1 the character learns that his brother is in fact the Games’ Front Man and is shot by his brother for failing to give up his gun and his police investigation. At the end we saw in season 1 of Squid Game was that Jun-ho was when he fell off the side off a cliff after being shot.

In a recent interview Deadline, Ha-jun said he wants his character to still be alive so he can the answers to many questions.

‘I’m dying to know what happened to him,’ the actor told the publication. ‘I want him to return alive, find his brother and ask him tons of questions. As a brother, I would ask him sincerely.

‘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.’

That said, the actor isn’t so sure a reconciliation between the brothers would be on the cards. ‘I will have to hear why he made certain choices,’ he said. Okay, so it’s not a confirmation that a second season is in the works, but it’s clear the cast want to find out what happens next for their characters. Kim Joo-ryoung (Han Mi-nyeo/Player 212) has also been delighting fans by sharing numerous behind-the-scenes photos from the Squid Game set if that’s any consolation?

You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site. In a new interview with the Guardian the show’s writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk opened up about the series’ success and his motivations for writing the series.

Squid Game Winner

When asked whether he’s now as rich as the Squid Game winner the 50-year-old said: ‘I’m not that rich. But I do have enough. I have enough to put food on the table. And it’s not like Netflix is paying me a bonus. Netflix just paid me according to the original contract.’ The director said, noting the TV series’ plot was inspired by his own family situation in 2009 following the global financial crash.

As for a possible Squid Game Season 2, it sounds like he hasn’t ruled out a sequel. ‘It’s possible,’ he told the publication, joking ‘that I have to do season two to become as rich as Squid Game’s winner’. Dong-hyuk also recently told Variety that working on Squid Game was pretty challenging, so it’s likely he wouldn’t want to jump head first into a second season without giving it some in-depth thought.

‘In my earlier days, I’d drink half a bottle of soju (Korean liquor) to get the creative juices flowing. I can’t do that any more,’ he said. ‘Writing (Squid Game) was harder than normal for me as it was a series, not a film. It took me six months to write and rewrite the first two episodes. Then I consulted verbally with friends, and picked up clues for improvements through my own pitching and from their responses.’

He later told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s feeling the heat from fans to write a Squid Game Season 2.

‘The pressure on me is huge now, with such a big audience waiting for a season two. Because of all that pressure, I haven’t decided yet whether or not I should do another season,’ he said. ‘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.’

Dong-hyuk is currently working on a film titled KO Club, so don’t expect a Squid Game Season 2 script any time soon, okay?

What is the Squid Game season two plot?

In a teaser video for Squid Game Season 2(which you can watch below) shows the giant killer robot doll we were introduced to last series. The number two flickers in her eye as the robot’s infamous song plays in the background.

The post, posted to the series’ social media platforms, teased the return of familiar characters, such as Seong Gi-hun and The Front Man.

It read: ‘And now Gi-Hun returns. The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming. The man in the suit with ddakji might be back.

Gi-Hun was the only survivor, so we anticipated his return. ‘The man in the suit with ddakji,’ refers to Gong Yoo, a Korean icon, who starred in action horror film Train To Busan.

Seemingly, Yoo, who played a high-profile cameo role, may reprise his part to solicit more people to risk their lives in the deadly game that is Squid Game.

In a recent interview, protagonist Lee Jung-jae (Gi-Hun) seemed to confirm that the Front Man, played by Lee Byung-hun, would move from largely being in the shadows into a lead role. So it seems that the two of us will be the central figures of this next story.’At the end of season one, only Gi-hun and Cho Sang-woo remain in the competition. Gi-hun is ultimately the winner, but at the last moment offers his hand to Sang-woo, only for the latter to take his own life.

In an interview with Deadline in March 2022 at the PGA Awards ceremony, Dong-hyuk said he’s working on ideas for the next season.

‘There will be more great games, that’s all I can say.’ Hwang said. ‘I’m just still brainstorming and collecting the ideas for season two. I haven’t even started with the writing yet.’

When asked whether some cast members could make a comeback, he joked: ‘No, because most of them are dead. I’ll try something to bring them back to season two.’

Gesturing to actor HoYeon Jung (Kang Sae-byeok), he said: ‘Let’s say maybe she has a twin sister, you’ll see.’ The former model interjected and noted: ‘I could change my hair colour. Let’s do a little like plastic surgery.’

Is there a Squid Game season two trailer?

Yes, the first official teaser has been released for Squid Game: The Challenge.
